Easy filtering with STC-0011-OpenCVFilter

OpenCV – a great source of inspiration

At Scorpion Vision we feel inspired by the OpenCV Open-Source project – it must be followed and analysed by a dedicated machine vision company. All the excellent 2D filters that are included in OpenCV  has opened up our understanding of the importance of extracting /removing / enhancing an image before doing the image analysis on the images. The STC-0011-OpenCVFilter is created in this good athmosphere and underline the fact that Scorpion Vision Software is an open platform where we can pick and choose from the best available algorithms or choose to make a custom solution.

STC-0011-OpenCVFilter provides easy access to OpenCV filtering

We have implemented this powerful and flexible tool that exposes the following filters in its FilterBank with 20 odd operators.

  • Canny
  • Laplace
  • Blur
  • Make Border
  • Histogram Equalize
  • Pre Corner Detect
  • Invert 8 bit image
  • Median Blur
  • Erode
  • Dilate
  • Open
  • Close
  • Adaptive Threshold
  • Scale
  • Trunc
  • Gaussian Blur
  • Flip
Configuration dialog STC-0011-OpenCVFilter

The filters are expose with user configurable parameters and the filter can be executed in an abitrary order.

The OpenCVFilter STC provide the important possibility to understand how filters work and how they can be combined – there are many combinations. Try it and you will start to love filtering!

A large range of Scorpion Tool Components are available to Scorpion Vision Partners and users holding a Scorpion Vision SDK Licence.
