Allied Vision approved machine vision accessories have been selected by our experts to deliver best possible image quality to your application with the greatest possible reliability. Our technicians and engineers conduct extensive tests with accessories such as lenses and interface cables in combination with our cameras. That way, we can recommend the best possible accessories and ensure maximal performance of your Allied Vision camera.
Software integration made easy
To operate Alvium CSI-2 cameras on your vision system, Allied Vision provides different access modes:
- Direct Register Access (DRA) to control the cameras via registers for advanced users.
- Video4Linux2 Access allows to control the cameras via established V4L2 API and applications like GStreamer and OpenCV.
Open-source CSI-2 drivers are available on GitHub for different boards and system on chips (SoCs).
Alvium USB cameras can be easily integrated into embedded systems with Allied Vision's Vimba Suite, a future-proof, platform-independent SDK for all Allied Vision cameras with USB3 Vision Interface.
GenICam-based Transport Layers support the Alvium USB cameras and can automatically connect them to third-party software solutions such as MATLAB, OpenCV, Halcon, CVB, and many more.
