JAI Camera Software

JAI provides several types of control software and development kits to support JAI cameras. For new customers, the latest recommended version can always be found on the Downloads page or in the Downloads tab of the product page associated with a specific model.

The tables below describe the software packages available and offer links to current versions, as well as selected older versions which may be needed for some projects.

eBUS SDK for JAI

The eBUS SDK for JAI is a powerful new SDK for building vision systems that utilize JAI cameras. It is based on the eBUS SDK by Pleora and is specifically designed for use only with JAI cameras. The eBUS SDK for JAI consists of an SDK (Software Development Kit) and a Player.

The eBUS Player is application software for directly accessing and controlling JAI cameras in a non-programmatic way. It can be used for testing and evaluation of JAI cameras with GigE Vision or USB3 Vision interfaces. The SDK is packaged software that enables system developers to easily build programs for integrating JAI cameras into vision systems.

JAI SDK and Control Tool

The JAI SDK and Control Tool is the original JAI software offering full compliance with the GenTL™,

GigE Vision®, and GenICam™ standards. While the eBUS SDK for JAI is recommended for any new projects involving one of the list of supported cameras, the JAI SDK and Control Tool is available for ongoing support of existing systems or for systems involving cameras not on the eBUS SDK for JAI's supported list.

It allows quick and easy integration of any JAI GigE Vision camera, as well as many of JAI's newest cameras with Camera Link, USB3 Vision, or CoaXPress interfaces.

Transition to eBus SDK for JAI
For your new projects using JAI cameras, eBUS SDK for JAI is strongly recommended. Technical support for JAI SDK will be terminated at the end of March 2020. Current customers using JAI SDK are encouraged to migrate to the new eBUS SDK for JAI by that time.

After April 2020, while it will be possible to continue to use JAI SDK as long as you are on a supported Windows version, support from JAI will not be available. To prepare for termination of the Windows OS that you currently use, we ask you to start migration as early as possible.
