MCS, Inc., the leader in industrial and mailing inkjet and camera systems, is showing its new MicroVision Line Scan camera, designed and manufactured by MCS, Inc. specifically for the mailing and printing industry.
As part of the MCS Output Camera System and MCS Perfect Match family of camera systems, the Line-Scan Camera enables multiple areas of a piece to be decoded utilizing a high-resolution scanning line of 2000 pixels. The camera and lighting have a compact footprint and mounting system to allow integration with common inserters and transports. The software provides for integrity checking, logging and matching of IMB codes, numbers and alphanumerics along with graphic and logo recognition.
Common applications include verification and matching of UPS Intelligent Mail Barcodes, document form numbers, envelope types and verification of logos - all in line with an inserter or other production device. The Output Camera System will also manage inserter pocket verification, double-insert detection, sequence verification and control a high-speed divert system for uptime optimization. The MCS Line Scan and Output Camera System are fully compatible with Perfect Match 6.0 systems. In addition, MCS' full line of camera solutions provide logging/auditing of production information including time and date for all pieces.
These features enable production mailers to conform to the rising demands of integrity in the industry. The increase of sensitive information in the mail stream along with marketers demanding full accounting of solicitations has raised the level of integrity and accountability in most mailing campaigns
