Multistandard PCI frame grabber - mvSIGMA-SLC

Discontinued

mvSIGMA-SLC - Multistandard PCI frame grabber
  • 4 input multistandard gray scale/color frame grabber
  • Fast switching between asynchronous cameras
  • General purpose frame grabber with optimum features for surveillance applications
  • Digital I/Os for alarm signals

The mvSIGMA-SLC is a frame grabber for standard color or gray scale video signals. Optimized teamwork of hard- and software allows fast switching between asynchronous cameras. In surveillance applications the digital I/Os match the need to connect alarm input and output devices to the system.

Drivers and applications for Windows 7, 8.1 (mvIMPACT Acquire)

Since version 2.10.1 of mvIMPACT Acquire the "Merge Modules for mvIMPACT Acquire" are available as a separate download.
For this reason the installation packages are smaller now. The Merge Modules are needed for private setup routines, which shall include mvIMPACT Acquire drivers. More details are available in the mvIMPACT Acquire manuals.

Older driver versions

To be able to watch or download the drivers, you have to be registered or logged in.

Drivers and applications for Linux 2.6 .. 3.x.x (mvIMPACT Acquire)

The frame grabber is supported by the Video4Linux driver. Here's a complete list: 

http://www.mjmwired.net/kernel/Documentation/video4linux/CARDLIST.bttv

Via command line you can load the frame grabber:

sudo rmmod bt878 bttv
sudo modprobe bttv card=126

Additional packages for LabVIEW, DirectShow, VisionPro and Halcon

Since version 1.10.69, the DirectShow® driver is part of the mvIMPACT Acquire installation package.

Since version 1.10.85, an interface to VisionPro® (Cognex) will be installed automatically when installing an MSI based mvIMPACT Acquire driver package.

mvIMPACT Acquire bindings for HALCON are available on MVTec's website: http://www.halcon.de/download/
