sales office in Gernlinden near Munich, Germany. The Imaging Source is now
part of the MVTec Certified Training Partner program, qualifying the
employees to pass on their broad knowledge about the software library HALCON
from MVTec to their customers. To receive this certification, selected
employees of The Imaging Source have participated in comprehensive trainings
by MVTec, thus enabling them to even better support HALCON customers in
developing their applications. The Imaging Source offers trainings and
seminars for HALCON starting now.

HALCON is the market leader among machine vision libraries regarding
performance, flexibility, and comprehensiveness of the tools states Patrick
Gailer, business development manager at The Imaging Source. HALCON fits
well with our camera portfolio to offer customers from all machine vision
markets an automated solution. Our support and our trainings help customers
