MVTec releases HALCON 11.0.1

HALCON 11.0.1, fixes bugs and offers improved features to the market.

MVTec Software GmbH has launched a new maintenance release of its machine

vision standard software HALCON 11. This release, HALCON 11.0.1, fixes bugs
and offers improved features to the market.

HALCON is able to read multiple types of bar codes in one call. In this auto
discrimination mode, the bar code reader of the maintenance release 11.0.1
is more robust and considerably faster. Furthermore, the bar code reader can
now identify slanted codes, and its memory consumption has been reduced.
HALCON also provides a data code reader. With the release 11.0.1, this data
code reader consumes less memory.

One of HALCON's most important unique selling propositions is HALCON's
integrated development environment, HDevelop. With the new HALCON 11.0.1
maintenance release, HDevelop has been extended with an inspection window
for 3D object models, which now allows to visualize a 3D object model and to
view various properties of it.

The HALCON codelet classes have been extended with two new classes which
provide functionality to acquire and display images. They can be used as
templates for new .NET applications or directly within newly developed code.

In addition, the 11.0.1 release has been extended with HDevelop example
programs for image acquisition interfaces that grab 3D data. These HDevelop
example programs show how to generate 3D object models from the acquired 3D
data.

Furthermore, HALCON 11 supports the operating systems Windows 8 and Mac OS X
10.8.
