Boston, MA.-- On April 10, A&B Software was presented with a prestigious gold-level award in the software category at the Fourth Annual Vision Systems Design Innovators Awards presentation, held during The Vision Show 2018. Their GigESim GigE Vision Simulator received an outstanding score from a panel of esteemed experts from system integrator and end-­user companies.

GigSim is a software package that allows end-users and developers to convert their computers, applications and devices into a set of virtual GigE Vision cameras.  Any GigE Vision compliant software running at the same or other computers on the network will treat GigESim as an actual GEV camera. GigESim includes a powerful SDK that allows developers to assign images generated by their application to a simulated GigE Vision camera and stream them to the network for further processing and analysis. Despite the complexity of GigESim’s internal structure, the SDK is very easy to use. No familiarity with GigE Vision or GenICam standards is required. Using a set of simple functions a developer can define individual features provided by a virtual camera, exercise a full remote control over each feature, and stream images and data to the network in the GigE Vision format. The latest version of GigESim supports 10 GigE and multi-NIC connections which makes it an ideal choice for developing distributed image processing systems based on the GigE Vision standard.

The Innovators Awards are judged based on the following criteria:

  • Originality 
  • Innovation 
  • Impact on designers, systems integrators, end users
  • Fulfilling a need in the market that hasn’t been addressed 
  • Leveraging a novel technology
