Image Analysis Release Offers Major Functionality

11/19/2002 - Data Translation, a leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of high-performance data acquisition, imaging and machine vision products, announced version 3.5 of its award-winning GLOBAL LAB Image/2 (GLI/2), a Windows-based image analysis software environment. New Polar Unwrap, ROI Shape Fitter, Digital I/O and Match Tools have been added to the software's extensive library as well as a new image capture capability and enhancements to two existing tools. These new features, in addition to GLI/2's existing easy-to-use programming environment, make GLI/2 ideal for measurement, analysis and image processing in the Scientific Image Analysis (SIA) industry and general-purpose imaging markets.

The new features include the following:

According to Fred Molinari, president, founder and CEO of Data Translation, "Today's announcement leverages GLI/2's strength as an all-in-one solution for complex image analysis challenges that require measuring, classifying, edge-tracking, counting and size-distribution analysis. The point-and-click script capability also means that anyone can use GLI/2 to easily create image analysis applications."

GLI/2 is Data Translation's complete, customizable image analysis package that is ideal for scientific and general-purpose imaging analysis applications. Designed for a wide range of users with different expertise levels, GLI/2 provides multiple development levels -- from pre-defined image processing and analysis tools for code-less graphical program development, ideal for non-programmers who want to use a simple point-and-click script, to object-oriented API function calls, allowing experienced programmers to write complete applications and custom tools in Visual C++ . GLI/2 also supports a wide range of Data Translation frame grabbers (monochrome, variable-scan, color and digital-input) so that developers can tailor the frame grabber type needed for specific imaging requirements.

Availability, Pricing and System Requirements
GLI/2 3.5 is priced at $995 and is available for immediate order. Upgrades are currently $595. The software requires a IBM PC compatible (Pentium with Triton PCI chipset or better), 64 MB RAM, SVGA monitor, 100 MB of free hard disk space, PCI interface if using a frame grabber board, CD-ROM, sound card (optional for multimedia online help), Windows 2000/XP and, if needed, Visual C/C++ 6.0 or better for creating custom tools and applications.

Data Translation provides complete technical support for all its products.
