It includes support to facilitate 2- and 3-D calibration and communication with robots. Enhanced communication functions enable data transfer among several smart cameras and hosts, providing support for multicamera and 3-D applications. The software works with VC4xxx real-time and network-ready cameras, including color, line-scan and megapixel models up to 240 fps.
