The EPIX XCAP-Lite is a ready-to-run image analysis software for PIXCI frame grabbers. It allows you to load, view, and save images and sequences to and from files when the frame grabber is present and open for use (multiple frame grabbers can be used at the same time too). It also lets you export customized video formats and camera serial commands to assist programming the frame grabbers via the XCLIB "C" library.

XCAP is designed to augment the functions of PIXCI frame grabbers by putting image processing power at your control. It offers simple-to-use menus and dialogs that allow you to easily complete basic or complex imaging tasks. XCAP and PIXCI frame grabbers seamlessly integrate popular cameras with numerous functions, such as capture and display, video enhancement and psuedo-color, examination of image details, graphical annotation, programmable resolution, and more. (Some functions are dependent on hardware options or the version of the PIXCI card.)

XCAP has a Java-based UI combined with efficient "C" and assembler image processing routines, and its multi-threading capability allows virtually unlimited views, graphs, and analyses of one or multiple images. Built-in tools allow simultaneous presentation and manipulation of multiple images of varying resolutions and pixel formats. XCAP features a scripting language and non-procedural "spread sheet" programming for automating image analysis and inspection tasks, and can also be remotely controlled from other applications through scripts.

Note: For imaging boards capturing directly into host computer memory, XCAP-Lite is limited to 64MB of frame buffer memory (but allows one full resolution image buffer without size restriction). There's no limitation on frame buffer memory when used with the PIXCI CL3SD or PIXCI SI2.

Key Features
Multiple Format Video Capture
Capture from any video source supported by a PIXCI imaging board: area scan, line scan, high resolution, high frame rate cameras; with digital or analog output; in monochrome or color; with 8, 10, 12, or more bits per monochrome pixel or color pixel component value.

Control the capture window, undersampling, and reconfigurable frame buffers. Capture from multiple cameras with multiple imaging boards. XCAP Provides video rate image sequence capture, triggered event acquisition, continuous (circular) sequence acquisition until terminated by trigger event, video recording to memory, video recording to disk, live recursive or FIFO averaging, and live merge of RGB filtered monochrome images into color. It allows trigger on TTL signal, time of day, mouse, or video Timecode.

Integrated Camera Controls
Built-in, camera-specific, on-screen graphical controls for selected cameras that are configured via RS-232, I2C, or Camera Link, integrate the camera's controls within XCAP. There's no need to also run the camera manufacturer's software - both the PIXCI frame grabber and camera can be configured together. For selected cameras configured by physical switch settings, XCAP provides an on-screen virtual camera and switches -- setting the on-screen switches to match the physical switches easily configures the PIXCI frame grabber to match the camera. For cameras controlled by hardwired signals via the PIXCI frame grabber, XCAP provides a convenient graphical user interface.

XCAP provides integrated camera controls for Adimec, Allied Vision, Atmel, Basler, Baumer, CIS, CMOS Sensor, Cohu, Dalsa, Dalstar, E2V, FLIR, Hamamatsu, Hitachi, Ikegami, Imperx, Indigo, Intevac, ISVI, Jai, Mikrotron, PerkinElemer, Point Gray, Princeton Instruments, Pulnix (Jai), Raptor Photonics, Reticon, Salvador Imaging, Sensors Unlimited, Sentech, Silicon Imaging, SILICON VIDEO, Sony, Takenaka, Thomson/Thales, Toshiba Teli, Uniq Vision, Vieworks, and many other cameras.

Generic Camera Link Configuration
Use any Camera Link camera, combined with a Camera Link style PIXCI frame grabber, even when XCAP doesn't provide camera specific controls. An easy to use graphical interface configures XCAP and the PIXCI frame grabber for the camera's resolution, bit depth, color space, etc. Use the camera manufacturer's software for control of the camera via serial commands, or directly enter serial commands into XCAP's 'terminal' dialog.
