With all of our cameras and spectrometers we supply driver software and demonstration programs. These drivers allow users to easily interface to our devices when writing their own application software.



 Applications have a choice of two ways to use the software:

  • Directly calling functions on the CameraServer DLL
  • Using the COM interface to the CameraServer DLL

The COM interface is the easiest interface to use when developing with late binding languages such as Visual Basic. In addition, by using COM, the Camera need not be installed on the same computer as the application software.

Accessing cameras through the DLL directly is primarily intended for developers using languages such as C/C++. This mechanism is less cumbersome for C applications than using COM but does mean that the application must be installed on the same computer as the camera.
