MUNICH, GERMANY-Scientific vision technology sales, marketing and development company Autim Inc. now distributes MVTec machine vision software products in the United States and Canada. Besides the distribution of Halcon and ActivVisionTools, Autim also provides technical support for these software products.

Furthermore, the distribution, technical support and training activities for MVTec products in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland and Sweden are now performed by Parameter, a provider of industrial solutions throughout Scandinavia, the Baltic countries and Poland.

“As products that facilitate advanced vision solutions, Halcon and ActivVisionTools are a natural fit for Autim and our customers,” says John Hooning, president of Autim Inc. “We are excited about the advanced tools, performance and hardware independence Halcon provides and believe that the capabilities of the software will allow both our customers and our own developers to tackle vision applications in new and unique ways. Additionally, the software development environment is exceptional, with extensive source code examples and detailed documentation.”

“Northern Europe is an important industrial market,” says Dr. Olaf Munkelt, MVTec’s managing director. “Thus, MVTec wants to expand its sales activities in this region. We are sure that Parameter will meet our requirements in a distinguished way.”
