New ActiveUSB SDK for USB3 Vision™ cameras

Sept. 17, 2019

Responding to the high demand for a hardware-independent Software Development Kit for USB3 Vision™ compliant cameras, A&B Software has released the new ActiveUSB SDK. The SDK provides developers and end-users with an immediate access to multiple USB3 Vision™ cameras through a number of programming interfaces, including a simple drop of ActiveX objects on an application surface. The COM-interface guarantees a quick and easy integration into virtually any programming environment including C++, C#, VB6, VB.NET, Delphi, Java, Python, Matlab, and Labview.

The SDK offers comprehensive property dialog boxes with a full control over the camera attributes. Among other features are the following: multi-camera AVI and image sequence recording, instance access to image buffers and pixels, real-time image processing, transparent color overlays of graphics and text, full-screen mode with monitor synchronization, histogram and statistical calculations, built-in background and hot-pixel correction. Included TWAIN and DirectShow drivers offer a universal plug-and-play interface between USB3 Vision™ cameras and third-party imaging and video recording applications. Provided with ActiveUSB are multiple code samples in different programming languages. ActiveUSB is highly optimized for speed and fine-tuned to a number of popular camera brands.

"With USB3 cameras rapidly increasing in popularity for machine vision applications, developers and end-users have been looking for a universal and easy-to-use software library,” says Boris Nalibotski, A&B's President. “We are proud to announce this new addition to a popular line of our camera interface products.”
