Matrox Imaging announced immediate availability of complete native support for the USB3 Vision™ camera interface standard in Matrox Imaging Library (MIL). This lets MIL users take advantage of USB3 Vision cameras on Windows® 7 and Windows 8 imaging systems and increases the selection of camera interface standards that can be employed practically interchangeably.
The USB3 Vision standard, built on the GenICam™ generic programming interface, provides powerful features such as bandwidth higher than 350 MB/s, an easy-to-use plug and play interface, and support for power and data up to five meters over a passive cable or even greater distances over an active cable. Matrox support for USB3 Vision meets AIA certification requirements and has been validated throughout its development with cameras from Basler, Baumer, MATRIX VISION, Point Grey, Sentech, Toshiba Teli and XIMEA.
Matrox support for the USB3 Vision camera interface standard is an update to MIL 10 and is now available to MIL registered users with valid maintenance subscriptions through the software’s self-update service.
