Phần mềm End-user Imaging source IC Capture
Three ways to capture images
- Single images can be saved manually
- Image sequences can be saved manually
- Image sequences can be saved via a timer
- For example: Save 1 image per second for 24 hours
Acquisition of single images
Single image frames can be captured from a live video stream and can be saved to a BMP, TIFF or JPEG file.
Acquisition of an image sequence
A number of frames can be acquired and saved to a sequence of image files. This can be done by pressing the space key, pressing a foot switch, or automatically, using a timer. The timer allows the time interval to be defined between two images. The number of image frames, which are saved can be limited by either a specific number of by a time limit.
Automatic filename generation
The name of the files written to disk can be created automatically. The filenames consist of a prefix, and an optional time stamp or sequence number.
If a camera is set to trigger mode, the camera waits for an external event to deliver a single image. IC Capture supports this camera feature and is able to save the images. An external trigger signal can also be used to synchronize several cameras.
AVI capture and codec support
IC Capture saves image streams directly to AVI files, either uncompressed, or by using software codecs for image compression. AVI capture also works with triggered cameras. All installed image compression codecs can be selected in IC Capture, and used to compress the video stream.
Save and restore all device properties
All settings made in IC Capture can be stored and used for future purposes.
Brightness, contrast, saturation, gain, zoom, focus, iris etc.
All available camera properties can be adjusted in IC Capture.
Horizontal and vertical flip (mirror function)
IC Capture can flip the live video stream horizontally and vertically.
Rotate live video stream
IC Capture can rotate the live video stream 90°, 180° and 270°. 90° rotation is often used for body scans.
Region of interest (ROI)
IC Capture allows a region of interest to be defined.
Frame rate adjustment
All frame rates supported by the video capture device can be selected.
Exposure adjustment and long time exposure
Several cameras, manufactured by The Imaging Source, support long exposure times of up to one hour, or short exposure times of 1/100,000 second to capture fast moving objects.
White balance and color temperature
IC Capture supports the gray world and color temperature models to adjust the white balance. If the color temperature of the light source is known, the color temperature model delivers best results. Under daylight conditions, where the color temperature constantly changes, the gray world model is recommended.
