Powerful software interface performs a wide variety of imaging features.
The camera's powerful, proprietary software allows the user to capture still images in JPEG and Bitmap file format or video in AVI format. The software also can perform edge enhancement, image mirroring and image binning, in the vertical directions, as well as hot pixel correction. The camera includes proprietary software, Direct Show (WDM), Active X and TWAIN drivers as well as SDK documentation.
