Cameras now Transfer Images at up to 12 bit Color Depth

On-the-fly firmware update extends GigE cameras

Obersulm, (PresseBox) - IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH announces powerful new functionality for its cameras of the GigE uEye SE and RE series. As of driver version 3.60, these cameras now support the transfer of images at the sensor's full color depth. The extended functionality provided by the new firmware is available immediately through a simple driver update in the PC. This way, even camera systems in the field can quickly and easily benefit from the new features.

The transfer of the sensor's full color depth of up to 12 bit was previously only supported by the high-end models of the GigE uEye HE series. With the driver release 3.60, the German machine vision specialist now also provides this strong feature for the SE versions with standard housing and for the splash water proof RE series with IP65/67 enclosure. Camera versions with HDR sensor and a correspondingly high dynamic range benefit particularly from the performance boost.

Even cameras in the field can take advantage of driver 3.60 and achieve a higher performance. This is made possible by the on-the-fly firmware upload approach that all uEye cameras come with. Once the driver is installed in the PC and the cameras have been started in the viewer application, new features can be used immediately.

Besides the updated firmware, the driver software 3.60 comes with several improvements, including support of new sensor models, revised DirectShow and ActiveX interfaces, and added functionality in the viewer application. The driver can be downloaded for free from the manufacturer’s web site at
