VRmagic intelligent components feature a highly integrated dual core chip with parallel processing architecture.
The ARM processor runs the Linux operating system
while the DSP is entirely available for image processing
tasks. Communication between ARM and DSP is carried
out through the Texas Instruments Codec Engine. TI offers various commercial codecs and open source algorithms for the DSP, for example the IMG Lib for basic image processing tasks. A free codec by VRmagic converts
the image data into various target formats, for example
RGB565, YUV, or RLE.

Convenient Application Programming
With a standard Debian Linux operating system and full
access to the ARM/DSP processor, intelligent cameras
by VRmagic provide a convenient platform for programming own applications with C/C++ or other programming
languages. Algorithms can be developed in standard environments such as MS Visual Studio or Code Composer
Studio and then transferred to the camera.
D3 Platform
With the D3 platform, ARM applications can be transferred to the camera without cross-compiling thanks to
the Mono compatible .NET interface.
Development of
algorithms in standard
environments such as
MS Visual Studio
D2 Platform
If using the D2 platform, code has to be cross-compiled
for the ARM using the pre-configured toolchain for Windows and Linux included in the VRmagic SDK. Then the
code can be transferred to the camera.
Extendable Linux Operating System
•• TI TraceUtil enables printf-debugging of DSP code.
Additional components can be easily installed on the
camera using the Linux package repository, for example
web servers or NFS servers. USB devices such as Wi-Fi
or Bluetooth dongles, hard drives, mice or keyboards can
also be used with the camera.
•• JTAG port for connection of real-time emulators
(XDS510 or XDS560) and DSP debugging with CCS.
Fast Compiling for DSP
Code for the DSP needs to be cross-compiled using the
TI DSP compiler. The TI DSP compiler and required tools
are available free of charge.
Updates via Ethernet
Updates of your camera applications and of the camera
firmware are possible via the Ethernet interface, which is
very convenient especially if you cannot access the cameras directly in the field. Cameras with the D2 platform
can also be updated using a USB flash drive.
Simple Data Transfer between Camera and
Host
Easy Debugging
•• ARM applications for the camera can be developed,
tested, and debugged on a PC. Then, the software can
be copied to the camera.
•• Remote debugging of ARM applications possible via
Ethernet, for example with Eclipse and gdbserver.
•• Windows/Samba share
•• NFS or FTP server/client
•• USB flash drive
•• SD card (D3 platform)

camera parameters
via its graphical user
interface.
Programming Libraries
Open CV
OpenCV is an open source vision library with more than
2500 optimized algorithms ranging from tracking of eye
movements to 3D point cloud calculation from stereo
cameras. Open CV now runs on the new D3 intelligent
camera platform by VRmagic, offering access to the full
range of programming functions.
VM_LIB
The VM_LIB is a machine vision library included* in
VRmagic´s SDK for use on intelligent cameras. The library
is optimized for the camera API and contains various algorithms (C functions) for image processing tasks, such as
object detection, pattern recognition, bar code scanner,
blob segmentation, and many low-level functions. The
VM_LIB is available for DSP, ARM, and PC platforms running Linux or Windows (x86).
Blob segmentation, one
of the machine vision
algorithms included in the
VM_LIB
*The VM_LIB is free of charge
for non-commercial purposes
and for development of
applications with VRmagic
components. If an application
shall be distributed as (part of) a
product, license agreements are
required.
Codec for the VRmagic Camera API
VRmagic has developed a codec for ARM and DSP based
on the TI Codec Engine, which is specifically optimized
for the camera API. The codec can convert the image
data of the sensor into different target formats such as
RGB32, RGB24, RGB565, YUV, GRAY, or RLE. Available
for all intelligent cameras.

Turn any Analog Camera into an Intelligent Camera
In combination with analog cameras, the new intelligent
framegrabber VRmDAVC-2 can perform image processing tasks fully autonomously. The direct connection of
peripherals (for example monitor via HDMI or Wi-Fi via
USB host) and control of equipment via RS232 or GPIOs
opens up a wide range of applications. Processed images
can be streamed via Ethernet.
The intelligent analog video converter features a 300
MHz ARM9 processor running Linux and a 600 MHz
C64x+ DSP with 4800 MIPs, which is fully available for
image processing tasks. A preconfigured toolchain with
cross-compilers for Windows and Linux enables development of framegrabber software on the PC. Because all
VRmagic imaging components feature the same API, the
devices are interchangeable without the need to rewrite
applications.
The intelligent analog video converter transforms every
PAL/NTSC camera into
•• a programmable, intelligent camera with Linux OS,

•• an IP/Ethernet camera,
•• a digital camera with DVI or HDMI output,
•• a still camera or video camera unit with USB mass

The Easiest Way to Integrate Analog Cameras
The analog video converter transforms every PAL/NTSC
camera into a USB camera, which can be connected to
PCs and notebooks using the USB interface. The USB
interface also serves as power supply for the converter.
The image data is transferred to the PC and can be accessed conveniently using the VRmagic API. Because
all imaging components from VRmagic feature the same
API, no adjustments are necessary if the framegrabber
is replaced by a different framegrabber model or a digital
camera. This makes it possible to gradually switch from
analog to digital devices.
•• Connects any PAL or NTSC camera to a PC using the
USB interface

•• Up to nine user configurations (format, contrast,
calibration data, ...) can be stored in the device

•• Metric calibration
•• Data output formats: 3D point cloud, gray-scale
coded area map, or 2D image
•• Interfaces to Common Vision Blox and HALCON
•• Aluminum housing with IP65 rating
•• M12 connectors according to IEC 61076-2-101
•• 24 V operation
•• 100 Mbit Ethernet interface
•• Hardware and software trigger
•• OEM solutions available
•• Addressed via GenICamTM transport layer (GenTL)
AreaScan3D outputs data directly as a 2D image, gray-scale coded area map, or 3D point cloud.
Guaranteed
Measuring Accuracy
Robust, Accurate, and Fast 3D Data
Acquisition!
AreaScan3D is based on the robust, accurate, and fast
method of digital phase-measuring fringe projection.
Fringe projection, image recording, and generation of the
point cloud are performed in an integrated manner based
on an intelligent camera from VRmagic. Acquisition and
calculation of the 3D point cloud are performed directly
within the sensor. The DLP PicoTM projector from Texas
Instruments and the camera are synchronized with a
frequency of 60 Hz. Measuring accuracy of AreaScan3D
is guaranteed in the sub micrometer to millimeter range,
depending on the measuring volume. The material color
does not have any influence on measuring accuracy.
Suitable for Industrial Environments
The AreaScan3D sensor can be integrated in industrial
installations via the Industrial Ethernet interface. The
lightweight sensor features a robust metal housing with
IP65 protection, screw-type standard industrial connectors, a 24 V connection, as well as hardware and software
triggers.
Easy Integration
Integration of AreaScan3D with existing customer or standard software is easy through standardized interfaces to
GenTL. A viewer demo based on GenTL including sources
is available.
