FlyCapture version 1.8
Point Grey Research has launched version 1.8 of its FlyCapture software development kit, which provides a common software interface to control all Point Grey digital imaging products. Version 1.8 of the SDK contains a number of new features including ActiveX, Twain and DirectShow support, Point Grey USB 2.0 camera drivers, and an updated FirePro interface card driver.
FlyCapture 2.0, planned for release in Q1 of 2009, will provide cross-platform support for multiple camera interfaces. Users will be able to develop custom applications for their Point Grey FireWire and USB 2.0 digital cameras under both Windows and Linux 32- and 64-bit, using the same software API. Additional enhancements in 2.0 include a more efficient and easy-to-use object-oriented API, a more extensible architecture allowing quick adoption of new digital interfaces, and additional multi-platform GUI examples.
