eGrabber: A single API for GigE Vision, CoaXPress & Camera Link cameras

eGrabber Gigelink, a new optional add-on to eGrabber, provides a universal, hardware-independent access to GigE Vision cameras. eGrabber Gigelink allows the user to seamlessly integrate GigE Vision cameras from multiple brands in the same application, bypassing the proprietary camera drivers. With eGrabber, programmers can then use the same concepts, objects, and function calls to acquire images from GigE Vision cameras of any brand, from any CoaXPress cameras and any Camera Link camera.

High performance

Recorder focusses on performance. The library has been highly optimized to exploit the maximum bandwidth of disks. The actual recording throughput will of course depend on the disk capabilities.


Recorder stores images in a proprietary highly optimized file format. Images and video can be exported to standard TIFF and MKV files.
