Vimba X and Vimba SDK

Vimba X is our new, fully GenICam-compliant SDK. The Vmb APIs are similar to the Vimba APIs and migration is easy.

The Developer Guide contains a "Get Started" section including a migration guide for Vimba users.

Vimba X is our recommended SDK for Alvium cameras with GigE, USB, and CSI interface - it supports the latest Alvium features.
