The UKIVA Machine Vision Conference and Exhibition 2018 was a hit! We absolutely loved the event and had such amazing responses at the ClearView stand. Our managing director, Allan Anderson also hosted a very successful and well-received presentation on understanding vision technology, titled "Vision Systems Don't Work!"
"The 2nd UKIVA Machine Vision Conference and Exhibition ran in Milton Keynes on Wednesday the 16th and was a roaring success. Along with our partners at Matrox Imaging, FLIR, Photonfocus, NET, SVS Vistek, Vieworks, CVR Lighting and Munro Vision, we had a fantastic event, giving various presentations and running live demos on our booths.
After only two years, the UKIVA MVC event has become the most important event for the Machine Vision industry, in the UK, and we are proud we have played our part in getting this event off the ground. The conference was attended by our industries finest, with speakers and exhibitors coming from all over the world. In addition, visitors came from all over the UK and also many more international visitors compared with the 2017 event, so we now have a truly independent event for both the UK and international users of Machine Vision technology."

We've made all the slides from our presentation at the UKIVA MVC 2018 available for you to view and download at your leisure. As a bonus we've secured presentations from our partners and fellow presenters on the day who agreed to make their slides available as well. Find some of our favourite presentations in the slides below:

For many years, creators of Vision Systems have struggled to make cameras and lenses truly function as one. Typically changing camera settings, means manually modifying lens settings, or even sticking to fixed lens settings and then working with a reduced set of parameters to obtain the optimal image. During this session, SVS Vistek will explore how, with the latest lens and camera technology, full control of lenses and an industrial camera is now possible. Starting with the history of lens control, discussing auto iris technology, through to the latest Micro-Four Third mount and liquid lenses, this presentation will give Vision System designers new hope in how to tackle the age-old problem of camera and lens control.
Deep Learning and Embedded Vision
Vieworks' TDI line scan cameras are based on new innovative “hybrid” sensor technology. The sensors combine CMOS and CCD. The base sensor has is a classic CMOS structure with much faster readout speeds and lower power consumption. However the sensors use CCD photo cells to capture the images and CCD technology still offers higher dynamic range and better image quality. In addition, the integration and transfer of stages is done by moving charge in CCDs, making this process virtually noiseless. The TDI line scan cameras based on these new hybrid imaging sensors allows image captures as fast as 250 kHz line rates with up to 256 stages. They are designed for applications where faster line rates and higher sensitivity are critical.
