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.


Recorder is an optional library of eGrabber that offers optimized video recording to hard drives. It is compatible with hard disk drives (HDD) as well as solid state drives (SSD).

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.

Compatible with Neo licensing system

Easy to use

The Recorder library is easy to use and relieves the user from having to care about file size, name, or format.


Recorder is able to compute and store UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) timestamps along with image data.
