mvIMPACT Acquire SDK GUI Applications
wxPropView

wxPropView is used to acquire images, configure the device, display and modify device/driver properties, perform various image analysis as well as recording video streams. Depending on the operating system, you will find the application after the installation as follows:

  • Windows
    • as an icon with the name "wxPropView" on the desktop or within the "Start Menu"
  • Linux
    • in "/opt/mvIMPACT_Acquire/apps/mvPropView/x86" (32 bit systems).
    • in "/opt/mvIMPACT_Acquire/apps/mvPropView/x86_64" (64 bit system)
    • in "/opt/mvIMPACT_Acquire/apps/mvPropView/arm64" (ARM 64 bit systems).
Note
GigE Vision™ devices:
  • Linux: Without being root the system might not allow an application to modify the priorities of the threads it creates. Since certain driver operations will work better with modified thread priorities it is recommended to run wxPropView with this possibility, which might require the application being executed as the root user. When this shall be done the following paths have to be exported for the root user (this is done automatically for simple user):
    export GENICAM_ROOT=/home/x/tmp 
    export GENICAM_ROOT_V3_3=/home/x/tmp
    export GENICAM_LOG_CONFIG=/home/x/tmp/share/genicam/log/config/DefaultLogging.properties 
    

    or easier run shell script "genicam.sh" before:
    . /etc/profile.d/genicam.sh 
    
  • Windows: Given that during the start wxPropView searches the network for GigE Vision™ devices, it could be possible that - depending on the Windows firewall settings - a Windows security alert appears. Please click on "Unblock" or "Allow Access" depending on the version of Windows you are working with so that the program works properly.
