MVTec Partner Meeting at Wageningen University

MVTec's distribution partner in the Netherlands, Data Vision, hosted a meeting of MVTec Certified Integration Partners (MCIP) at Wageningen UR Green Vision in October.

MVTec's exclusive distributor in the Netherlands, Data Vision, encourages

meetings for expert customers to jointly develop and share skills and
knowledge in the field of machine vision. The last meeting at the end of
October 2013, took place at GreenVision, the centre of expertise on computer
vision in the agrifood industry of Wageningen UR (University & Research

All participants of the MCIP meeting are employees of companies which are
certified by MVTec to be a member of HALCON's circle of excellence, the so
called MVTec Certified Integration Partner Program. These companies are
specialists in system integration and in building machine vision solutions,
based on MVTec's standard machine vision software HALCON.

We had the idea for these unique meetings three years ago, says Harm
Hanekamp, Sales Manager and Coordinator of the Integration Network at Data
Vision. Meanwhile, our meetings are a great success because all
participants benefit from their different backgrounds and the unusually
close team spirit of the group. The participating companies support each
other. That means human resources as well as different know-how can be
shared for complex vision projects.

Hanekamp explains that the group actively works to standardize and optimize
their project approach. Furthermore, the delivering of robust solutions,
risk management and reducing costs and mistakes are important tasks. In the
future, about three or four meetings a year will be organized by Data Vision
hosted at different the MCIP members' locations.
