Matrox Imaging announces the launch of their Matrox Iris GTX smart camera

MONTREAL — On May 19, Matrox® Imaging announced the launch of the Matrox Iris GTX model edge IoT devices and its smart cameras.

Boasting a more powerful embedded processor as well as faster and higher-resolution image capture for higher rate and/or more detailed inspection, these all-in-one vision systems are bundled with Matrox Design Assistant® X software to capably handle both traditional machine vision workloads as well as deep learning inference.

Designed for machine vision and deep learning

Matrox Iris GTX smart cameras boast an Intel® Atom® x6000 series embedded processor for comfortably handling the processing needed for both traditional machine vision operations as well as deep learning inference in the form of image classification and segmentation via the on-device software, Matrox Design Assistant X.

An Intel x6000 series dual-core embedded processor allows the use of faster and higher-resolution CMOS image sensors on Matrox Iris GTX. The vision operations in the Matrox Imaging software see a three-fold performance boost with Matrox Iris GTX for the same image resolution.

Matrox Iris GTX smart cameras preserve the same cabling connections as its immediate predecessor, for ease of upgrade and implementation. They feature a IP67-rated housing and robust M12 connectors for their external interfaces, allowing them to operate in dusty, wet, and other demanding conditions.

“Thanks to its Intel Atom dual-core processor, plus its higher image sensing speed and resolution, Matrox Iris GTX smart cameras really stand apart in terms of the power they deliver for both traditional machine as well as deep learning inference,” says Fabio Perelli, Product Manager. “Our vision tools see an average three-fold performance boost for the same image resolution as compared with Matrox Iris GTX’s precursor.”

Matrox Iris GTX will be available in Q3 2021.
