TiViPE: Spend more time on research and less on coding

Tino Lourens

Dear all,

I am pleased to announce visual programming environment TiViPE.

If you would like to program faster, need a rapid prototyping tool, would like to modify a program while it is active, would like to integrate code (C, C++, Fortran, or Java) with minimal additonal effort then TiViPE might be the appropriate solution.

Actually, I wanted a program that could wrap any routine into a graphical environment without programming and with little additional effort. Since, such a migration process is essential for users to move from textual programming to graphical programming. In this respect TiViPE provides a major difference to for instance AVS or Khoros.

  • TiViPE includes already a considerable number of useful icons for image processing and includes most of my research on early vision (center-surround, simple-, complex, endstopped cells, etc.) and graphmatching.
  • TiViPE has been developed under Linux, but uses the platform independent Qt-library. Ports to Mac, and Windows will be made in the second half of 2005.
  • TiViPE can be downloaded from:

On that website, you will find more information about TiViPE, as well as two optional libraries can be used to provide the environment with 1. networking support through socket communication 2. merging support to compile a graphical program to a single icon and executable.

Please enjoy.

With kind regards,

Tino Lourens:
