The PIXCI® series imaging boards are supported by a wide range of software solutions. These include:
This Directory does not include custom or special purpose programs written by EPIX, Inc. or third party developers for specific customers or niche applications, but which are not marketed as off-the-shelf products for use with PIXCI® imaging boards.
EPIX® Imaging Software
XCAP-Std combines an easy-to-use Java-based graphical user interface with highly efficient "C" and assembler image processing routines. Multi-threading allows virtually unlimited views, graphs, and analyses of one or multiple images. XCAP-Std includes a scripting language, user-defined tool bars, and non-procedural "spread sheet" programming for automating image analysis and inspection tasks. Other applications, in virtually any programming language, can remotely control XCAP-Std through scripts.
XCAP supports all PIXCI® imaging boards under Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, Vista and under Linux.
EPIX® Imaging Libraries
The PXIPL Library empowers C/C++ and Windows programmers to process and analyze images in conjunction with XCLIB. PXIPL provides a wide selection of imaging routines. The major categories include: processing, enhancements, graphic lines and shapes, text overlay, printing, morphology, filters and edge detectors, transforms, convolutions, sequence integration and averaging, image printing, image copy and resizing, single image and image pair normalizations, blob analysis, histograms and moments, image load and save, calibration, correlation, subpixel accuracy measurements, and particle tracking.
XCLIB and PXIPL support all PIXCI® imaging boards under 32 and 64 bit versions Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8; 32 and 64 bit versions of Linux; and 32 bit DOS.
TWAIN Compatible Applications
for machine vision and motion control. User configurable, multi-threading,
controllable from VB or VC. Example applications include 3-D
positional control for laser welding, high speed inspection
of electronic components, print inspection, and dimensional
tolerancing of parts."
Applications can take advantage of advances in codec and filter technology transparently. Developers can add new codecs and filters by writing a simple plugin with a clean, generic interface. Read more ..."

"Each configurable Vision Chip module performs several high-level functions, such as waiting for a part-in-place signal, finding the location of an object, or inspecting defects."
Plus provides an easy way to acquire, process, and analyze images
on a single machine or across an entire network. Image-Pro Plus
comes complete with point-and-click simplicity, intuitive interface,
and the ability to integrate text, data, and graphics into one
package. A Visual Basic compatible macro language allows for
easy customization of Image-Pro Plus to meet your specific imaging
is a revolutionary graphical programming development environment
based on the G programming language for data acquisition and
control, data analysis, and data presentation."
"MATLAB is a high-level language and interactive environment
that enables you to perform computationally intensive tasks
is a general purpose image processing system for industrial
quality control, designed to meet the requirements an up-to-date
quality management system makes on the visual inspection of
every item. Using NeuroCheck, you can check completeness of
assembly groups, surface quality and measurements of work pieces,
correctness of inscriptions and precise positioning."
"StreamPix is a software package for digital video recording
direct to disk or ram memory, in uncompressed or compressed
formats. StreamPix runs on a variety of cameras and supports
both the analog and digital PIXCI® imaging boards. StreamPix
provides a full GUI with VCR type controls, the ability to playback
captured sequences, and the ability to export images in TIFF,
BMP, JPEG, and other formats."
– Real-time data recording for single devices
is a powerful and easy to use software package that lets you
capture, manipulate, analyze, store and output images and data.
You can also use it to carry out reliable and repeatable high
precision measurements, to compute measurement statistics and
for counting and sizing operations. VisionGauge has an integrated
report builder that lets you easily produce illustrated inspection
reports containing measured data, and collect images and data
into a database."
"VisionGauge® OnLine is a powerful machine vision software for automated inspection,
verification and data collection. VisionGauge® OnLine is extremely easy to setup and use.
VisionGauge® OnLine can be used for both in-process and sampling / off-line applications."
award-winning V++ Precision Digital Imaging software makes advanced
imaging easy. Sophistication, speed, power, and Windows compatibility
all come together in one seamless package. The intuitive user
interface adheres to all of the accepted conventions for a Windows
product so you probably already know how to use it!"
WAY-2C is a powerful machine vision software system designed as a
reliable cost-effective alternative to human labor in such tedious
color-based tasks as inspection, process control, image interpretation,
measurement, sorting and bar-coding.
