MVTec Innovation Day 2021: Experience Machine Vision Trends at a Virtual and Interactive Event

  • Virtual, interactive MVTec event on February 3, 2021

  • New machine vision trends on topics such as deep learning and 3D vision

  • Expert presentations, demonstrations, and networking via live stream, an event portal, and video chat

Munich, December 10, 2020 – MVTec Software GmbH (www.mvtec.com), a leading provider of machine vision software, invites guests once again to attend MVTec Innovation Day. On Wednesday, February 3, 2021, visitors will gain practical insight into the latest machine vision topics. In view of the current situation, the event will be virtual for the first time. Experts will be showing trends, technologies, and solutions via numerous live streams that are primarily aimed at developers, programmers, and experienced machine vision users. The MVTec team will also be on hand in the virtual space for personal exchanges and professional conversations, including via video chat. In addition, participants will have an opportunity to visit an exhibition with live demonstrations and to engage in direct discussions. The event will be broadcast in German and English. For detailed information on the agenda and to register for the event, visit www.xing-events.com/mvtec-innovation-day-2021.

Expert presentations and live demonstrations of the latest technologies and trends

The event’s focus is on expert presentations on the latest technologies and trends in machine vision, including deep learning and 3D vision, with special emphasis on their practical application. For example, participants will learn how customers can use the new Deep OCR to get the most out of their machine vision applications. Other presentation topics include shape- and surface-based matching, with MVTec experts providing field-tested tips and tricks in live demonstrations using the software that will help developers achieve optimal results. In addition, the MVTec research team will demonstrate how to estimate more precise 6D poses with the help of 2D deep learning – an approach that has already earned the BOP Award 2020 in the “Best Fast Method” category. Identically to last year, guest speakers – for example, from SICK and MSTVision – will discuss topics like the use of HALCON on sensors and edge devices or the development of complex projects using HDevEngine.

Networking and personal exchange in the virtual space

Two different event packages are available: Event Experience “Light” and Event Experience “Full.” Whereas the “Light” package already provides access to all live streams, the event archive, and the possibility of posing questions to the presenters, the “Full” package takes complete advantage of the event’s interactive character. An event portal is provided that makes it possible to set up personal meetings via video chat, participate in interactive group chats on specific topics, and access a variety of bonus materials. Those who choose the full version also receive an exclusive catering and giveaway package that is delivered to their doorstep in time for the event (only for participants from the EU).

In addition, both packages offer access to a new event app that will guide participants through the day.
