JAI SDK and control tool

JAI SDK and control tool 

The JAI GigE Vision SDK and Control Tool is one of the most robust and versatile GigE Vision software packages offered by any camera manufacturer. The software provides GigE Vision and GenICam integration and functionality for all of JAI's line of GE cameras. 32-bit and 64-bit versions are available for Windows 7, Windows XP or Vista operating systems.

The software package comprises three parts:

  • SDK components (libraries of functions) required for easily integrating JAI GigE Vision compliant cameras into vision applications.
  • Filter driver for fast and efficient streaming of GigE Vision packets.
  • The JAI Control Tool,  a vendor independent application that can be used for testing and evaluating all JAI GigE Vision cameras, as well as non-JAI cameras that are GigE Vision and GenICam compliant. The graphical user interface allows the user to see and activate the available features and functions of the connected camera(s). Streamed video can be viewed live or saved to memory.

GenICam SFNC version 1.3 and GigE Vision v1.1
Most new JAI GigE Vision cameras (those shipped after 1 July 2010) support the GenICam standard feature naming convention (SFNC) version 1.2 or 1.3, as well as version 1.1 of the GigE Vision standard. To access all the new SFNC and GigE Vision 1.1 functionality, version 1.3.0 (or later) of the SDK & Control Tool must be used. Earlier versions will also work with the latest cameras, but some functionality will not be available.

Sample applications and examples 
Included with the JAI SDK and Control Tool are many sample applications. These samples can be used “out-of-the-box” for a quick and easy utilization of SDK capability, or can be treated as a template to help users create their own proprietary applications.

Each new release of the software adds new sample applications and control tool fuctionality to the software. Capabilities range from new mouse-driven panning and zooming features, to new sample applications for auto-exposure and high dynamic range imaging.
