All-in-one inference camera solution from IDS receives VSD Innovators Award

For the sixth time, the American trade magazine "Vision Systems Design" has presented the Innovators Award to products and solutions in the field of image processing. The all-in-one solution IDS NXT Experience Kit received "Gold" in the category "Vision systems" and is thus considered one of the most innovative products in image processing. Criteria such as originality, innovation and use of a novel technology as well as the benefits for designers, system integrators and users and the effects on productivity are evaluated.

With IDS NXT Experience Kit, AI becomes both suitable for industrial applications and user-friendly - this concept convinced the expert jury. Artificial intelligence opens up new fields of application for camera technology and image processing. But this also brings new challenges for users. With the complete AI solution IDS NXT Experience Kit, users do not need any specialist knowledge of deep learning, image processing or camera programming to train and execute a neural network. Anyone can implement AI-based image processing in just a few steps and use it on an industrial camera.

This year, the award was presented online via webcast. John Lewis, Editor in Chief of Vision Systems Design, one of the leading trade journals in the machine vision industry, said: "The Vision Systems Design team would like to congratulate IDS for their score in the 2020 Innovators Awards program. Each year this unbiased and increasingly competitive program aims to celebrate the most innovative products and systems in machine vision. The IDS team should be very proud."

"IDS NXT Experience Kit is a real innovation. I was all the more pleased to receive recognition from the expert jury of the VSD Innovators Award. I am convinced that this will lead to a wider application of our IDS NXT inference cameras”, explaines Jeremy Bergh, President of IDS North America.

Last year, IDS received the VSD Innovators Award in silver for its vision app-based industrial cameras IDS NXT rio & rome.
