Share this on social media:

Allied Vision has released a new version of its software development kit (SDK). Vimba 2.0 combines the advantages of standardised GenICam features with an easy-to-use graphical user interface. The SDK supports Windows 10 and can be used in combination with Allied Vision's GigE Vision, FireWire, Camera Link and USB3 Vision interface cameras.

When developing Vimba 2.0, Allied Vision focused on optimising the usability and flexibility, not only of the software but also of the whole image processing application. The software widgets ensure a quick start and access to the latest camera features. First-time users can configure the camera intuitively, save their settings and load them in their own application. The graphical user interface makes it simple to adjust key settings such as exposure time, colour, region of interest, or triggering.

Vimba 2.0 is compatible with Windows, Linux, and Linux for Arm. With the ARMv7 processor support, developers can design their Allied Vision camera into an embedded vision system.

Vimba can also connect to third-party software, such as Mathworks, Cognex, MVTec, Norpix, OpenCV, Matrox, and Common Vision Blox. GenICam-based software automatically detects the camera through Vimba's transport layers. Vimba supports the most popular programming languages (C, C++, .NET) and can control all camera interfaces with the same application programming interface (API).
