IDS Software Suite or VISION standard
Only IDS gives you the freedom to choose!
IDS is the only camera manufacturer to give you the choice: Users who are looking for 100% support for the Vision standard can opt for our USB3 Vision or GigE Vision variants. Users who want to fully exploit the useful additional functions and features of the new sensors can choose our very own IDS Software Suite.
IDS Software Suite for Windows, Linux and Linux Embedded
The same software from day one: Developed since 1997, downward compatible and with remote update capability. As all necessary drivers are loaded to the camera when it is initially connected, the functionality of cameras already installed is quickly and easily extended by software updates. The IDS software suite allows mixed operation and switching between USB 2.0, USB 3.0 and GigE cameras without changing a single line of program code. Our camera software also supports many useful features of modern sensors, such as long exposure, multi integration mode, line mode, higher pixel rate and many more. Dozens of example programs in various programming languages, including C, C++, C# and Visual Basic, make it easy to quickly integrate IDS cameras into your application using the explanatory source code. The uEye interfaces support the most popular machine vision libraries, such as HALCON, LabView, NeuroCheck and many more.
New from IDS: Our cameras speak GigE Vision
Now, in addition to the USB3 Vision standard for selected USB cameras, we also support the GigE Vision standard in our new second-generation GigE uEye CP series and GigE uEye FA series. GigE Vision is a global interface standard for cameras made by all manufacturers, and is based on the Gigabit Ethernet communication protocol. As a result, our cameras are compatible with all machine vision software, and are ready for use immediately without software development kits or special drivers.
