Emergent Vision Technologies Software Simplifies AI Applications With Unlimited Processing and Scalability Features

PORT COQUITLAM, British Columbia — Apr. 09, 2024 — Emergent Vision Technologies, a pioneer in high-speed GigE Vision cameras and zero copy and zero-loss vision technologies, announced a further expansion of its powerful eCapture Pro software to include two new intuitive image processing tools: FlexProc and FlexTrans.  

Emergent’s eCapture Pro software allows users to fully integrate and leverage the company’s award-winning 5GigE, 10GigE, 25GigE, and 100GigE machine vision cameras. The new FlexProc and FlexTrans tools leverage eCapture Pro’s intuitive graphical user interface to expand high-speed image processing capabilities to any node on a user’s network. Emergent will showcase FlexProc and FlexTrans demonstrations at Booth #C5707 during the 2024 NAB Show running from April 13–17 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. 

“Machine vision applications continue to push the boundaries for high-speed capture, real-time AI analysis, and other performance-intensive capabilities from networked cameras,” said John Ilett, president and CTO at Emergent Vision Technologies. “Our new FlexProc and FlexTrans tools aim to deliver maximum performance, scalability, and latency from today’s most advanced processing methods—and from any node on user networks.”

FlexProc: User-Defined Processing  

FlexProc empowers eCapture Pro users to distribute image processing tasks wherever and however they wish on their machine vision network. Compatible with Emergent’s eCapture Pro and eSDK software, FlexProc’s drag-and-drop user interface (UI) comprises blocks representing image processing nodes on the network, including CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, and even the Cloud. Users can either tap plug-ins pre-programmed to control each processing unit or create their own custom plug-ins for easy integration into eCapture Pro’s intuitive graph view. The new FlexProc tool will be particularly useful in multi-camera applications, allowing end users to easily deploy 64 GigE Vision cameras on a single server/GPU configuration, for example.

FlexTrans: Any Node-to-Node Transfer 

FlexTrans enables users to transfer image data and results anywhere in their system—between GPUs in one server, between two or more servers, and even between the system and the Cloud. Its use of Emergent’s GPUDirect and zero-copy technology allows the transfer of image data directly from GPU memory to other nodes, supporting high-performance data transfers with the lowest latency possible on the network. These capabilities distinguish FlexTrans from alternative data transfer approaches that can take up to 3x the network resources to maintain the same performance. That translates into 3x the cost.  

Supported by eCapture Pro’s graphic interface, FlexTrans further delivers these capabilities with no coding expertise required. Users simply connect the blocks in eCapture Pro’s graph view to direct where they want data to flow next in the processing pipeline.

Emergent Vision Technologies has been shipping 10GigE for more than 10 years, 25GigE for five years, and 100GigE for two years.
