OmniView uses four cameras to obtain a 360-deg view of all features of cylindrical containers. It can read barcodes, verify text, inspect graphics and measure features at production line speeds of up to 1200 parts/minute. OmniView is a vision software technology that uses images from multiple area cameras positioned around the cylindrical object to instantly generate a virtual 3D surface model. It then creates a seamless, undistorted, “unwrapped” image to the complete surface to which optical character recognition (OCR), barcode reading and other machine vision software tools can be applied.
