March 22, 2018 – LUCID Vision Labs, Inc., a new designer and manufacturer of unique and innovative industrial vision cameras, today announced the release of its new Arena Software Development Kit (SDK) which has been designed to maximize the performance of LUCID cameras and is based on the latest GenICam3 and GigE Vision image acquisition standards.
The Arena SDK features a comprehensive API toolkit, providing users with easy access to the newest features and software technology compliant with current industry standards. The GenICam 3.0 based C++ API leverages GenICam’s Reference Implementation for robustness, stability and reliability and uses the Standard Feature Naming Convention (SFNC) for camera features and control. It has been designed for forward-compatibility with new device features and enables fully-featured chunk data support, device events and triggers. The Lightweight Filter (LWF) driver improves image transfer performance and lowers CPU usage when streaming large images at small packet sizes.
“The Arena SDK has been designed from the ground up and optimized for today’s diverse range of user preferences,” says Rod Barman, Founder and President at LUCID Vision Labs. “It features an intuitive, modern and flexible architecture that enables an easy integration and rapid development of all kinds of machine vision applications and embedded systems.”
