GigE Vision On Linux

Linux GigE Vision SDK software lets programmers control and capture images from Prosilica gigabit Ethernet cameras.

The package includes sample code to help programmers more easily use cameras in Linux S-based applications. The software works on both x86 and PowerPC hardware. Software called QNX SDK supports Prosilica GigE Vision cameras running on the QNX operating system. Gigabit Ethernet cameras output uncompressed image data to a host computer, often at high data rates, for image processing. Data is received through the gigabit Ethernet port of the host computer, no need to use a frame grabber. Gigabit Ethernet cameras range from VGA at 200 fps up to 4-megapixel resolution running 15 fps. Cameras are available with either CCD or CMOS sensors, either monochrome or color, with a variety of output formats including RGB.
