The revolution has begun!

Let’s change the system of embedded vision

Freedom is a new camera platform that is about to change the world by breaking our dependency on PC programming and making cameras easier to integrate into your system. Watch the videos below for more insights into the embedded revolution!

Believe in a better vision

From the 4th of May, the embedded world will stand up for its right to access advanced vision technology, and free itself from camera limitations forever! From this day on, we will be at liberty to choose from the best image sensors and the smartest features. And to forge our own embedded destiny, regardless of our application or automated system!

Spearheading the revolution is a unique processor technology that’s condemning past camera designs to the dustbin of history in the name of efficient, cost-effective implementation for us all!

Join the embedded revolution now!

One platform, multiple solutions!


Embedded vision cameras deliver poor image quality and possess only a few image optimization features. Image-optimization is performed on the host processor, consuming CPU capacity. But what if a new vision module where to change all that? One that lets you create embedded systems with the power of PC-based cameras!

April 21, 2017

Progress is a platform!


The revolution is inclusive! It’s putting an end to performance-based discrimination between embedded and PC-based vision systems. In fact, our camera platform has been specifically designed to suit all user profiles and industrial applications, regardless of whether you’re using an embedded or PC-based machine vision application.

April 05, 2017

Smart design for more performance!


We’re about to launch a revolutionary new embedded camera platform. Afterwards, poor image quality and limited image optimization will be a thing of the past. And embedded system integrators will be free to enjoy the machine vision performance that used to be the privilege of PC users.

March 31, 2017

Affordable Features for all!

Liberate embedded vision! We demand the freedom to choose the feature set we want!

Condemn PCs to the dustbin of history!


Forget PCs for machine vision! We don’t need them for processing anymore. The revolution is heralding a new image sensing processor that can perform pre-processing tasks on board the camera, dramatically reducing CPU load. Viva la embedded revolution!

April 19, 2017

Features in accordance with our needs!


Integrated image optimization features in embedded cameras have always been limited, resulting in a bad image quality. But by doing more processing on board the camera, the embedded revolution is changing all that – and vanquishing poor image quality forever.

April 06, 2017

Features in accordance with our needs!


Advanced image pre-processing features built in an embedded camera would help reduce CPU load on the host processor. But this would make the camera too expensive for most embedded applications. What if the revolution changed that?

March 31, 2017

More Processing now!

Slow processing is oppressing our vision systems. Join the revolution and put an end to it now!

Camera for embedded vision

Low power consumption is a right!


Where machine vision is concerned, it’s either low power consumption or high-performance image processing – you can’t have both! Or can you? Advanced pre-processing provided by the revolution’s image sensing processor saves space and slashes your power requirements. Viva la embedded revolution!

April 20, 2017

We want advanced pre-processing!


High power consumption results in heat. And that’s not good for your camera system. By offering industrial quality machine vision in a small, embedded-ready package, the embedded revolution is asserting your rights to low power consumption and optimal heat load.

April 05, 2017

Revolutionize machine vision cameras!


High-performance image processing requires a lot of power and generates heat. To reduce power consumption and get your system to run cooler you’ll have to settle for less processing and lower image quality. Or will you? The revolution thinks otherwise!

March 31, 2017

Believe in a better vision!

Everyone has the right to better embedded vision. But sometimes it takes a revolution to get it.

CSI-2: the embedded-ready interface

Learn about how the MIPI CSI-2 camera interface makes integration easier.

April 26, 2017

Compatible connectivity now!


Proprietary interfaces restrict machine vision since advanced machine vision cameras do not “speak the embedded language.” But real freedom is about compatible interfaces and easy designing. That is why the revolution is establishing interfaces that offer maximum compatibility.

April 20, 2017

End CPU load burden!


The old embedded vision regime is guilty of CPU burden. But by doing more processing on board the camera, the revolution is radically reducing data transfer and host demands so your system is free to live out its full potential! Join the revolution now and eliminate CPU load burden forever!

April 06, 2017

Demand faster, easier data transfer!


Advanced machine vision cameras are hard to integrate into an embedded system because they do not “speak the right language” – i.e. support standard embedded interfaces. But building an embedded vision system should be easy. Our revolutionary manifesto says so

March 31, 2017

Embedded systems of the world unite!

End class discrimination now! Compatibility for everyone – regardless of vision system!

Do the 130 and 140 cameras support OpenCV?

Yes. All cameras of the 1 product line can be used with OpenCV, both via V4L2 and GenTL. Watch our embedded vision tutorial for more details!

May 5, 2017, 12:38 pm
Which sensors will be available in the 130 and 140 series?

At market launch, we will offer ON Semi and Sony CMOS sensors from 0.5 to 18 Megapixels. Please refer to our embedded camera brochure to see which sensors are available in which camera series.

May 5, 2017, 09:28 am
Do you plan more models with other interfaces than USB and CSI-2?

For now, we focus on these two interfaces because they are the most popular in the embedded world. But the Allied Vision 1 platform is modular so we may include other interfaces in the future. Yet it is too early to disclose any plans now. Stay tuned!

May 4, 2017, 05:43 pm
What is so special about ALVIUM®?

What is so special about ALVIUM® is that it makes it possible to offer a lot of pre-processing features in a small package and at a low cost. So for the first time, the performance of machine vision cameras becomes available to the embedded world. Watch the ALVIUM® tutorial for more details!

May 4, 2017, 04:05 pm
How much do the 130 and 140 cameras cost?

Each series has different models depending on the sensor and the interface, so each model has its own price. The 130 series will have a starting price at 99 €, the 140 series will start at 169 €. The full price list will be available when the cameras are commercially released. Contact our sales team for more information!

May 4, 2017, 03:58 pm
What exactly is the difference between the 130 and 140 series?

The sensor range: 130 has only ON Semi sensors up to 5 Megapixels, 140 also has high-resolution sensors up to 18 Megapixel including Sony Pregius sensors.
The feature set: 130 has a simple feature set to deliver a nice image, 140 has a more advanced feature set for image pre-processing and system performance.
The housing: 130 and 140 are both available as a bare board and open housing, but 140 U is also available with a closed housing.
Download our embedded camera brochure for more details!

May 4, 2017, 02:47 pm
Is the new camera compatible with Raspberry Pi?

Yes. The USB cameras 130 U and 140 U support Raspberry Pi.

May 4, 2017, 02:24 pm
What exactly is ALVIUM®?

ALVIUM® is a new SoC that we have designed especially for the Allied Vision 1 product line. It is the core processor of all cameras of this product line. But the ALVIUM® technology is not just the chip itself. It also includes the image processing library that runs on the chip. Watch the ALVIUM® tutorial for more details!

May 4, 2017, 11:47 am
When are the new 130 and 140 series available for sale?

The 130 series will be released in Q3/2017; the 140 Series in Q4/2017.

May 4, 2017, 09:52 am
Can I get a full list of features for each model?

We will publish this when the products are released for sale. Until then, you can find some general information and examples in our embedded camera brochure, available for download on this page.

May 4, 2017, 08:02 am
What do you mean with “low power consumption”? How much does the camera need?

This is really depending on the model and the activated features. Our ALVIUM® technology has a much smarter power management than an off-the-shelf FPGA. We aim for <1W for 130 C models.
