Matrox Imaging (Dorval, Canada) has launched the Matrox 4Sight X, the latest generation of embedded systems that integrate video capture, processing and display. The rugged construction and small footprint make Matrox 4Sight X ideal for any environment. Built upon an embedded Intel® 64-bit multi-core architecture, Matrox 4Sight X is equipped with either a CoreTM2 Duo or Celeron® processor, as well as an Intel® GMA x3100 2D/3D graphics engine to offload image processing.For image acquisition, 4Sight X features dual integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports for GigE VisionTM and three IEEE 1394 a/b ports for Industrial Instrumentation Digital Camera (IIDC). Optional frame grabbers for x4 PCIe® / 32-bit PCI can acquire video from analog, digital RS-422/LVDS, and Camera Link® sources. Complementary hardware compression capability is also available. All optional hardware (for image acquisition and compression) is pre-installed and configured at the factory. Microsoft® Windows® XP Embedded is available on the system; applications are programmed with the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL). Like hardware, software is pre-installed so developers have a simpler development and deployment process and can get their product to market sooner. Matrox 4Sight X is manufactured in-house with stringent change control so a consistent supply is available throughout its long life cycle, helping to maximize ROI. www.matroximaging.com
