New Windows Vista Compatible Software Driver for the uEye® Cameras

Latest Version 2.40 Supports Flash Exposure in Free-Run Mode!

(PresseBox) (Obersulm, ) Ready for Windows Vista: The new software driver version 2.40 for the uEye® cameras from IDS now supports the latest Microsoft operating system (32-bit). Also included in the release is a range of new added functionality.

The most interesting new feature is the possibility of flash exposure in free-run mode. This function was previously only available in trigger mode. In free-run mode the camera sensor works autonomously and at maximum speed. While one captured image is being transmitted, the next image is exposed. This provides very high frame rates.

The short exposure times with flash support allow taking pin-sharp images even of quickly moving subjects. Permanent lighting is no longer required. The camera's flash output can also be used as a trigger signal, e.g. for starting external measurements. In that case the images are taken synchronously with the measurements.

The functionality is available for all uEye® USB cameras from IDS, except the UI-1210 and UI-1440 models. The complete range meanwhile comprises over 100 variants with CCD or CMOS sensors for industrial as well as non-industrial applications. The resolution ranges from 640 x 480 pixels through to the 5-megapixel variant with 2048 x 1950 pixels.
