The Aphelion™ Imaging Software Suite proposes a broad range of software interfaces for popular image acquisition systems. These interfaces enable users to capture live images when using any of the hardware devices listed below, controlling that process with the Aphelion software environment. These software interfaces are divided in two categories: Standard Interfaces and Proprietary Interfaces.
Both the IEEE1394 and DirectShow interfaces are included in the Aphelion Lab and Aphelion Dev software products.
Proprietary System Interfaces
Some cameras available on the market are delivered with proprietary drivers to fully control camera parameters (image resolution, exposure time, light integrating mode, etc.). The cameras currently supported by the Aphelion Imaging Software Suite are:
Analog video cameras can also be interfaced to Aphelion using a frame grabber board. The frame grabber boards currently supported are:
Contact your local representative for details and availability of specific drivers.
Aphelion Image Acquisition Device Interface:
1 Compliant with the IIDC 1394 Digital Camera Specification version 1.31 as published by the 1394 Trace Association. 2 Compliant with the Microsoft DirectShow interface. Most of the manufacturers provide the DirectShow-compliant driver in addition to their own drivers, e.g. Allied Vision Technologies, Basler, IDS, PixelLink, Sony.
