Imaging Development Toolkit
Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) 7.5 is a programming library offers an extensive set of optimized functions for image capture, processing, analysis, display and archiving. The Edge Finder tool is the newest addition to the package, and is a tool for feature extraction and analysis. It can be used in applications as varied as defect detection, finding objects with significant deformity or finding simple shapes very quickly. Once extracted, edges can be measured, analyzed and sorted in a manner that is independent or dependent on one another. It can also be used as a plug-in for the Geometric Model Finder; results can be used to define a model instead of a new image. Many enhancements have been added to the Optical Character Recognition module. This module features an interactive Windows utility for font definition and experimentation. It also includes a string locator, supports reading proportional fonts, and can read blank characters, or multiple strings or lines at once. In addition, the OCR module now supports OCRA, OCRB and MICR fonts.
