Intel and SoftIntegration Release Ch OpenCV Package
for Computer Vision
DAVIS, Calif., December 6, 2002 -
SoftIntegration, Inc., the leader of
scripting technology for ubiquitous computing, today announced
the release of Ch OpenCV
Ch OpenCV is jointly developed by Intel and SoftIntegration as a default
interface to OpenCV binary library and included as open source in the distribution of
Ch is a cross-platform C/C++ interpreter.
Ch OpenCV Package is Ch binding to
Intel's OpenCV open-source C library.
OpenCV was originally
developed by Intel to
provide a free and open infrastructure
where the distributed efforts of the vision community can be consolidated and
This open source library is mainly aimed at real-time computer vision.
OpenCV can be used for
human-computer interaction (HCI);
object identification, segmentation and
recognition; face recognition; gesture recognition;
motion tracking, ego motion,
motion understanding; structure from motion (SFM);
and mobile robotics.
With Ch OpenCV package,
all C programs using OpenCV library can readily run
without tedious compiling and linking cycles.
OpenCV applications can take advantage of
built-in 2D/3D graphical plotting and advanced numerical functions in Ch.
More complex applications can be designed and deployed
together with other software modules such
as Ch OpenGL, Ch GTK, Ch Windows, and Ch X/Motif Toolkits.
Moreover, real-time computer vision can be easily accomplished remotely
and displayed through the Web dynamically with Ch CGI Toolkit.
"With Ch OpenCV Package, developers
can now rapidly prototype applications of computer vision,"
said Dr. Gary Bradski, Leader Designer and Manager of OpenCV project
"Ch OpenCV is the integration of easy of use and power,
which increases the potential for wide applications of
real-time computer vision enormously."
"C/C++ developers have been very impressed with the incredible simplicity of the Ch scripting environment. Ch OpenCV Package allows them to
avoid lengthy compile/link/execute/debug cycles for application development.," said Dr. Dawn Cheng, General Manager at SoftIntegration. "With Ch OpenCV, engineers and scientist can perform tasks related
to real-time computer vision with high productivity. It is also
an ideal environment for teaching and learning computer vision."
Ch OpenCV package is available in Windows. It is free, and bundled
and distributed together with the open source code of OpenCV.
Below is an interactive graphical user interface (GUI) for image operations
generated by one of sample programs distributed in OpenCV. Click the image
to view the C source code that is readily to run in Ch.
