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.
eGrabber supports the definition of callback functions, functions that are automatically called when specified events occur. eGrabber’s events are related to new images (buffers), data streams, the camera and illumination controller, the frame grabber’s I/O toolbox or the CoaXPress interface events. Single-thread and multi-thread callbacks are supported.
