Microscan Instructs Machine Vision Lighting Course at The Vision Show

Microscan announces the instruction of two educational machine vision courses and product demonstrations at The Vision Show. May 8-10, 2012 Microscan will show at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA from booth 417.

RENTON, WA, April 2012 - Microscan, a global technology leader in machine vision and barcode solutions, announces the instruction of two educational machine vision courses and product demonstrations at The Vision Show. The Vision Show is organized by the Automated Imaging Association (AIA) and is scheduled to take place May 8-10, 2012 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. In Booth 417, Microscan will actively demonstrate more than 15 products including machine vision lighting, software, and hardware.

In addition to in-booth product demonstrations, Microscan course instructor Dr. Jonathan Ludlow will be presenting the latest smart camera technology at 11:30 AM on Wednesday, May 9 on the show floor, which is open to all attendees. Dr. Ludlow is also once again instructing an educational course on "Advanced Machine Vision Lighting" as part of the Automated Imaging Association (AIA)'s Certified Vision Professional Program. The CVP program provides educational courses and skills testing for machine vision professionals at the AIA's conferences and tradeshows

Proper lighting is essential to the success of any machine vision application, but can be difficult to achieve in configurations that include large objects, curved surfaces, or otherwise hard to light geometries. In "Advanced Machine Vision Lighting", Dr. Ludlow will guide users in designing lighting for complex applications such as these, and cover topics including color, polarized light, strobing, and new developments in lighting control. In the course of the presentation, attendees will learn to improve lighting engineering skills by taking an analytical look at everyday images in movies, TV, and photo journalism. The course is the 6th tutorial in the AIA's CVP program and part of its advanced certification track. It will take place at The Vision Conference from 8:00 to 10:00 AM on Tuesday, May 8.

Dr. Ludlow, Machine Vision Product Manager, has instructed machine vision technology courses for AIA for multiple years and brings more than 20 years of expertise in machine vision technology. He has authored papers on the application of machine vision in semiconductor packaging and electronic assembly, holds several patents relating to inspection systems, and is a regular speaker at machine vision symposia.
