Software Tools

IC Express

Modern cameras deliver images at very high speeds, so even fast SSD drives are often not enough to safely store all images. IC Express solves this problem by creating a large buffer in main memory where images are temporarily stored while waiting to be written to disk.

IC Express can also create short image series synchronized by software trigger from multiple cameras.

High speed image capture from one or more cameras into single image files.

Processor Idle State Manager

On some systems, overly aggressive power saving mechanisms can delay the transfer of image data over the USB interface which can lead to image errors and/or losses.

The Processor Idle State Manager can help resolve this issue by selecting other power options while a camera is connected.

Please contact support, if you would like to include the Processor Idle State Manager functionality as a library in your software.

Hot Pixel Correction

Most cameras manufactured by The Imaging Source are delivered with a table (or map) of defective pixels which allows the camera or driver can make a correction to the data.

During the camera's service life, other pixel defects may appear over time. The Hot Pixel Correction Tool re-calculates the defective pixels table allowing for the correction of newly occurring defects.
