TWAIN Drivers for PIXCI® Imaging Boards
- Stand-alone for PIXCI® SV2, SV3, SV4, SV5, and SV5A
with Snap, Live, Input, Brightness & Contrast Controls
- Stand-alone for PIXCI® CL1, CL2, CL3SD, D, D32, D2X, D3X,
E1, E4, E1DB, E4DB, EC1, EL1, and EL1DB with Snap control
- Shared-XCAP for all PIXCI® Imaging Boards
with all Camera and PIXCI® controls
The TWAIN Drivers enable the PIXCI® imaging boards to serve as a "TWAIN Source", allowing any "TWAIN Compliant Application" to capture one or more images from the PIXCI® imaging board. The TWAIN Drivers support the same bit depths as the PIXCI® imaging board; for the sake of TWAIN Applications that can't handle 10, 12, or 14 bit pixels, the TWAIN Drivers provide optional conversion to 8 or 16 bits monochrome, or to 24 or 48 bits RGB.
Two types of drivers, "Stand Alone" and "Sourcery" are provided in the "PIXCI® TWAIN Driver" software.
The "Stand Alone" TWAIN Driver requires minimal PC resources and does not require the presence of any other EPIX® imaging applications. The "Stand Alone" driver provides a minimum of interactive imaging board and camera controls. For the PIXCI® SV2, SV3, SV4, SV5, and SV5A boards, controls for Snap, Live, Input, Brightness, and Contrast are provided. For the PIXCI® CL1, CL2, CL3SD, D, D32, D2X, D3X, E1, E4, E1DB, E4DB, EC1, EL1, or EL1DB boards, a control for Snap is provided. The video configuration of the "Stand Alone" TWAIN Driver can be adjusted by importing video setup configuration files.
The "TWAIN Sourcery" driver allows sharing all of XCAP's sophisticated imaging board and camera controls, while allowing other TWAIN applications access to image data through the TWAIN interface. Both XCAP and the user's favorite TWAIN application can remain open at the same time, providing the best of both programs!
The PIXCI® TWAIN Drivers should not be confused with the XCAP feature as a TWAIN Compliant Application. The former allows other applications, such as Image-Pro or PhotoShop, to directly capture images via the PIXCI® imaging board, possibly using XCAP for control of the camera and PIXCI® imaging board. The latter allows XCAP to capture and analyze images from scanners or cameras that provide their own interface hardware and TWAIN driver, and doesn't involve use of a PIXCI® imaging board.
