Image processing specialist EPIX has recently unveiled Version 3.8 of its XCAP image-analysis software for the PIXCI family of frame grabbers. The latest update boasts support for more than 1000 camera models, as well as compatibility with Windows 8 and Linux 3.x. The software lets users capture, display, view, process, print, analyse, measure, load, and save images. It also includes a scripting language for customising and automating image-analysis and inspection tasks.

XCAP V3.8 now works with Osprey and Owl low-noise, high-sensitivity cameras from Raptor Photonics and the Bonito 4-Mpixel, 386-fps camera from Allied Vision Technologies. EPIX software and frame grabbers support all Camera Link, NTSC, RS-170, PAL, and CCIR cameras; all Silicon Video cameras; and many cameras with differential output. XCAP-Std V3.8 streams video to memory or disc for seconds, minutes, or hours, depending on the data rate of the camera and the computer's memory or RAID capacity.

The new XCAP-Viewer, available at no cost, allows users to load and view images and image sequences from files on any PC. XCAP-Viewer not only plays VIF (Verity Image Format) files, but also plays AVI (Audio Video Interleave) files while controlling the playback rate.

In addition to XCAP, EPIX also updated XCLIB, XCLIB-Lite, and PXIPL libraries. Upgrades from XCAP V3.0 and V3.7 are at no charge for all products except XCAP-Lite.

Further information regarding the XCAP software can be found here.
