The 27 camera series has comprehensive software support for Windows and Linux, meaning both programmers and end-users feel at home. Getting started with the cameras takes only a matter of minutes and integrating them into existing applications takes only a few lines of code. All cameras are shipped with drivers for LabView, HALCON, MERLIC, VisionPro, DirectX, Twain, and NeuroCheck. All camera parameters and settings can be set via the shipped software. End-user applications, an SDK consisting of .NET and ActiveX components and a C++ class library for W7/8, Vista and XP, and drivers for third party software are included with the cameras. In addition to this, powerful automatic modes ensure optimal image quality even under varying lighting conditions.
The cameras are shipped with: Driver for Windows XP, Vista, W7/8, and the SDK IC Imaging Control 3.2 (.NET and C++ library) and IC Capture. IC Capture is a powerful end-user software to set all camera parameters and to display and save single images and image sequences.
