– Featuring outstanding picture quality, high-speed image capturing, and the digital 1394b interface, the XCD Series is perfect for high-quality industrial and manufacturing solutions. The XCD-U100/U100CR incorporates a 1/1.8-type IT CCD that captures extremely, high-quality, detailed images with an ultrahigh resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). With this wide range of solutions, each with feature-rich benefits, it’s never been easier to select the right camera for your specific machine vision applications. The XCD Series of cameras adopts the IEEE 1394b interface that supports the IIDC protocol. By using this interface, users can transfer images to a host PC at speeds of up to 800 Mb/s.
Moreover, because multiple cameras can be connected in a daisy-chain configuration, users can enjoy the benefits of simplified operation in a multi-camera system. When these XCD cameras are daisy-chained, Bus Synchronization and Broadcast Delivery are available. With Bus Synchronization, users can capture images from different angles simultaneously simply by sending a single trigger from the host PC. Broadcast Delivery allows users to capture images from multiple cameras using a software trigger instead of a hardware trigger, which helps to minimize the occurrence of false triggers. This function also allows users to change the settings of multiple cameras simultaneously
Their compact design and rugged body enables the XCD Series to be integrated into a wide variety of industrial environments. In addition, the XCD series incorporates features such as partial scanning, binning and hardware LUT (Look Up Table).
Ideal for industrial machine vision applications such as object recognition, inspection, measurement, alignment, and more.

– The Montclair Art Museum (MAM) announced today that Alexandra Schwartz has been appointed Curator of Contemporary Art beginning November 16, 2010. This newly created position at MAM-made possible by a generous donation from the Vance Wall Foundation-represents a strong commitment to an area of focus long desired by the Museum and the community.
A curator and scholar of contemporary art, Schwartz has worked in curatorial roles at the Museum of Modern Art in New York since 2004, most recently as the coordinator of MoMA’s Modern Women’s Project, designed to increase understanding of women artists across the museum’s collections. In this capacity, she served as co-editor and contributor to Modern Women: Women Artists at The Museum of Modern Art and curated an exhibition, Mind and Matter, Alternative Abstractions, 1940s to Now, a group exhibition of 10 contemporary artists working in abstraction. This past spring also saw the release of her book Ed Ruscha’s Los Angeles (MIT Press), the first critical examination of Ruscha’s groundbreaking work in relation to the cultural contexts of its production.
Lora Urbanelli, Director of the Montclair Art Museum, said: “For over 95 years, the Montclair Art Museum has provided the region with programs that explore a deep and wide ranging view of American art, from Native cultures to the present day. We are thrilled that as we enter our second century, the Vance Wall Foundation has provided us the extraordinary
opportunity to shine a strong light on contemporary art, always an interest, but never a focus. The prospect of creating and developing this program at MAM attracted a very competitive field of candidates; we are delighted to have found someone with Alexandra’s strengths, energy, and vision for this role. ‘Contemporary art’ covers lots of ground. Alix’s love and knowledge of art history and the recent past, as well as her deep connection to the art of right now, make her the perfect complement to MAM’s Chief Curator, Gail Stavitsky. We can’t wait to have her on board!”
Schwartz said: “I am delighted to be joining MAM as the first Curator of Contemporary Art, and very much look forward to building an innovative contemporary art program that engages both with MAM’s distinguished history and with the vibrant and diverse local community.”
Schwartz has published widely, editing and contributing to numerous publications, and lectured extensively. She has also taught in the master’s program in Modern Art/Curatorial Studies at Columbia University and the Education Departments at MoMA and the Whitney Museum of American Art. She received her Ph.D. and M.A. in the History of Art from the University of Michigan and a bachelor’s, magna cum laude, in the History of Art and Architecture from Harvard University.
