Nerian continues to push the boundaries of its 3D vision technology. This effort has resulted in the new firmware version 8.0 for Nerian’s SceneScan 3D vision system, which brings several major performance improvements.
The new firmware significantly increases the frame rate when used with color cameras. In some cases the frame rate is doubled, such as at 1024 x 768 pixels, where now 32 instead of 16 fps are possible with the full 256 pixels disparity range.
At the same time, the maximum supported color image resolution has been increased significantly, and is now on par with the maximum monochrome resolution. Here is the new list of recommended resolution / frame rate combinations:
|Range||640 × 480||800 × 592||1024 × 768||1600 × 1200||2016 × 1536|
|SceneScan||64 pixels||45 fps||30 fps||n/a||n/a||n/a|
|monochrome||128 pixels||30 fps||20 fps||n/a||n/a||n/a|
|SceneScan Pro||128 pixels||135 fps||90 fps||55 fps||22 fps||13 fps|
|monochrome||256 pixels||75 fps||53 fps||34 fps||12 fps||7 fps|
|SceneScan Pro||128 pixels||80 fps||53 fps||32 fps||13 fps||8 fps|
|color||256 pixels||72 fps||49 fps||32 fps||12 fps||7 fps|
The new release also significantly increases SceneScan’s capacity for correcting lens distortion and camera alignment errors. As always, the firmware can be downloaded from our software download page.
