Imaging Modules - Competency for users

Our Imaging Modules are based on long-term experiences in development, design and production of high performance imaging systems for different branches. The integration of the Jenoptik board-level cameras into your system solution for digital image recording warrants high image quality and reliability of your entire system.

The digital imaging modules are available for numerous applications and requirements due to the different sensor technology used. Hence, we offer a large variety of CCD and CMOS sensors with high resolutions for routine applications in industry and science, warranting high live image rate and outstanding colour reproduction. Our sensitive CCD imaging modules are especially recommended for light sensitive applications and are optionally available with cooling and in color or monochrome.

¡Ü Software Development Kit (SDK)
 

For integration of our imaging modules as well as ProgRes¢ç Microscope cameras into digital image acquisition and analysing systems we offer one uniform Software Development Kit (SDK).

Especially system integrators as well as OEM customers benefit from this SDK as it allows to smoothly integrate our Imaging modules into an existing software environment or even to generate a new graphical user interface according to specific requirements.

Programming language

The following programs are part of the SDK:

1. the example program ?MexWin.exe¡°, with the ability to test nearly all functions without any programming effort in advance. The Source Code of the ?MexWin.exe¡° test program is also part of the SDK.
2. the program "Camera TypeViewer", providing an easy and fast overview over the most important parameters of the different imaging modules or the corresponding ProgRes¢ç cameras, and hence offering an even more comfortable integration.
3. our "MexLogMan" allows fast, easy and especially targeted error research to test the Source Code.

Control parameters


The following parameters can be controlled by the SDK sample program ?MexWin.exe¡° without any programming efforts:
1. Full control of exposure time, gamma, saturation, gain factor (analogue and digital), white reference
2. Image resolution for Live & Capture
3. Storage of captured images in .tiff, .RAW, .bmp file format
4. Colour-Processing (availability of various colour matrixes / colour interpolation algorithms)
5. Control of the Peltier element (on / off)
6. Firmware updates
7. Creation of individual Shading files (White- and Black-Shading)
8. Full control of read-out speed of the image sensor, this way full control of image quality also
9. Full control of camera trigger functionalities
10. Control of 4 cameras at the same time (display of 4 live images simultaneously is possible)
11. ¡°CxxWin.exe¡° allows for continuous exposure metering (Source Code is at hand)

ActiveX Control and LabView driver

In case of lacking knowledge in programming in C++ the Imaging Modules as well as ProgRes¢ç cameras can be controlled by an ActiveX-Control, or LabView Control widely-used at universities. Both the options allow users to realize the implementation of our imaging modules in existing software environments within 1-2 days.

The ProgRes¢ç SDK and all its modules are Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 compatible.

MAC and LINUX operating systems:

The ProgRes¢ç MAC SDK supports Apple Macintosh operating systems, the ProgRes¢ç LINUX SDK is available for supporting Linux systems!

Camera Support

The Software Development Kit for Windows PC supports ALL Imaging Modules as well as ProgRes¢ç cameras (Windows XP / VISTA / WIN 7).

The Software Development Kit for Apple Macintosh supports the FireWire-based Imaging Modules and ProgRes¢ç cameras (MAC OS 10.4 / 10.5/ 10.6).

The Software Development Kit for LINUX supports the FireWire-based Imaging Modules and ProgRes¢ç cameras (Linux Ubunto und Suse10).
