OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision Library) is a library of programming functions mainly for real-time computer vision. Originally developed by Intel, it was later supported by Willow Garage, then Itseez (which was later acquired by Intel). The library is cross-platform and licensed as free and open-source software under Apache License 2. Starting in 2011, OpenCV features GPU acceleration for real-time operations.

OpenCV [OpenCV] is an open source (see ) computer vision library available from In 1999 Gary Bradski [Bradski], working at Intel Corporation, launched OpenCV with the hopes of accelerating computer vision and artificial intelligence by providing a solid infrastructure for everyone working in the field. The library is written in C and C++ and runs under Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. There is active development on interfaces for Python, Java, MATLAB, and other languages, including porting the library to Android and iOS for mobile applications. OpenCV has received much of its support over the years from Intel and Google, but especially from Itseez [Itseez] (recently acquired by Intel), which did the bulk of the early development work. Finally, Arraiy [Arraiy] has joined in to maintain the always open and free OpenCV.org [OpenCV].
In OpenCV 3.0, the previously monolithic library has been split into two parts: mature opencv and the current state of the art in larger vision functionality at opencv_contrib [opencv_contrib]. The former is maintained by the core OpenCV team and contains (mostly) stable code, whereas the latter is less mature, is maintained and developed mostly by the community, may have parts under non-OpenCV license, and may include patented algorithms.
