Since its foundation in 1997, IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH has developed into a leading manufacturer of digital industrial cameras with USB and GigE interfaces. Whether in an industrial or non-industrial setting, our CMOS cameras assist companies worldwide in optimizing their processes, ensuring quality, driving research, conserving raw materials, and serving people. From the beginning, our camera software is made for Windows, Linux and Linux Embedded on ARM. True to our philosophy “It’s so easy!”, everything is perfectly compatible and easy to handle. Our IDS Software Suite includes many 3rd-party interfaces, among others for the HALCON Machine Vision library, for GenICam, and for the object-oriented programming language Python. Embedded Vision is therefore for us just an evolution of Machine Vision. Our “IDS NXT” vision platform will show that Embedded Vision could be as easy as using a smartphone. The combination of high quality “Made in Germany”, long-term availability, and exceptional ease of use makes IDS cameras unique. We develop and manufacture all our products, aiming to provide our customers the best user experience in the vision market.
