CVB CameraSuite

Full-featured, independent GigE Vision and USB3 Vision SDK for various operating systems

The powerful, easy to install software development kit CVB CameraSuite is the preferred image acquisition platform for any GigE Vision and USB3 Vision compatible camera and provided free of charge with any cameras delivered from STEMMER IMAGING.

Fully compliant with the updated GenICam standard supporting acquisition of multiple streams from one device, acquisition of structured data streams that contain multiple logical parts and acquisition into user-specified destination buffers. Additionally, it supports Teledyne DALSA’s TurboDrive V2.0 technology enabling compressed image acquisition from compatible devices which provide acquisition rates of up to 3 times the interface bandwidth.

This version, CVB CameraSuite, impresses especially with its flexibility regarding the supported operating systems.

Support for various operating systems

Besides the 32 bit versions of Windows (7, 8, 10), CVB CameraSuite supports as well the operating systems Windows 64 bit (7, 8, 10) and Linux 32 bit and 64 bit (Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Mint) as well as 32 and 64 bit Intel and ARM architectures. Full implementation of the GenICam standard and thus complete hardware independence is guaranteed.

CVB CameraSuite is based on optimised drivers with minimized processor load for best performance. The proven memory management with ring buffers and flexible image access is the perfect base for implementing own algorithms.

Windows version

For users of the Windows version an optimised DirectX-Display as well as flicker-free non-destructive overlays are available. Multiple file formats are supported and a variety of sample programs in source code help developers to realise own applications.

Common Vision Blox: Prototyping with Python

Speeding up the prototyping process is extremely beneficial to everyone involved. Three new object-oriented APIs, supporting C++, .NET and Python have been introduced in CVB2019 to provide a new way of developing machine vision solutions with Common Vision Blox. The new APIs are compatible with the existing CVB API, meaning that users can build on existing applications without having to re-write their codebase.

Licensing and Download

CVB CameraSuite is provided free of charge for all operating systems with any GigE Vision or USB3 Vision cameras delivered from STEMMER IMAGING. It is licensed independently from the operating system to the individual MAC address of the camera for GigE Vision cameras, respectively to the serial number plus vendor ID for USB3 Vision cameras number and is therefore not bound to the computer hardware or a dongle.

The numbers for the free of charge activation are to be found on the license sticker on the package of your GigE Vision or USB3 Vision camera from STEMMER IMAGING. Alternatively, you can also get your license key for your camera online.
