The NI Vision Development Module is designed to help you develop machine vision and image processing applications using the NI LabVIEW graphical programming environment for Windows and real-time systems and C, C++, C#, and Visual Basic .NET for Windows systems.
Along with the extensive library of machine vision and image processing functions, this module includes the NI Vision Assistant, an interactive environment for prototyping inspection applications that can generate ready-to-run code in any of the supported languages.
The module also features a license for NI Vision Acquisition Software that you can use to acquire, display, save, and monitor images from GigE Vision, IEEE 1394, and DirectShow USB devices, in addition to Camera Link, analog, parallel digital cameras, and NI Smart Cameras.
The Vision Development Module includes one year of membership in the Standard Service Program (SSP) to help you make the most of your software investment. With an SSP membership, you can capitalize on the latest technology improvements through automatic software updates and maintenance releases and reduce your application development time with direct access to technical support from NI applications engineers via phone and e-mail. You also have access to special online, on-demand software training modules to learn more about features, application uses, and development best practices.
In addition, you can purchase the Vision Development Module through NI Developer Suite, a modular product offering with which you can select software components based on your application needs. With an NI Developer Suite subscription, you have access to software as updates are available as well as direct access to technical support from NI applications engineers via phone and e-mail.
Consider the LabVIEW Real-Time Vision Development Bundle that includes all of the software needed to create real-time vision applications (Vision Development Module, Application Builder, LabVIEW Real-Time Module).
Run-time and debug licenses also available.
