Control the capture window, undersampling, and reconfigurable frame buffers. Capture from multiple cameras with multiple imaging boards.

Provides video rate image sequence capture, triggered event acquisition, continuous (circular) sequence acquisition until terminated by trigger event, video recording to memory, video recording to disk, live recursive or FIFO averaging, and live merge of RGB filtered monochrome images into color.

Allows trigger on TTL signal, time of day, mouse, or video time code.

INTEGRATED CAMERA CONTROLS

Built-in, camera-specific, on-screen graphical controls for selected cameras that are configured via RS-232, I2C, or Camera Link, integrate the camera’s controls within XCAP! No need to also run the camera manufacturer’s software – both PIXCI® frame grabber and camera can be configured together!

For selected cameras configured by physical switch settings, XCAP provides an on-screen virtual camera and switches – setting the on-screen switches to match the physical switches easily configures the PIXCI® frame grabber to match the camera!

For cameras controlled by hardwired signals via the PIXCI® frame grabber, XCAP provides a convenient graphical user interface.
