mvIMPACT Acquire SDK

mvIMPACT Acquire is the application programming interface (API) for MATRIX VISION hardware which is part of the driver package.

The programming interface can be used

  • to control the hardware and
  • to acquire the images (including to set the parameters).
  • Programming languages
  • Image processing functions
  • Supported libraries
  • Sample applications
  • mvVirtualDevice
  • Downloads

A number of current programming languages are supported like:

  • C,
  • C++,
  • .NET (like C#, VB.NET, etc.), and
  • Python

mvIMPACT Acquire offers a number of integrated host-based image processing functions, which are available for all MATRIX VISION hardware products. The following screenshot shows the available functions:

The order of the features in this list represents the order of the processing pipeline.

mvIMPACT Acquire is not limited to MATRIX VISION hardware. On request, mvIMPACT Acquire can be used with any other GenICam, GenTL (Producer), GigE Vision, and USB3 Vision compliant hardware.

The mvIMPACT Acquire driver package consists of mvIMPACT Acquire based sample applications.

The best-known and most comprehensive sample application is wxPropView. With this application you can display and set all parameters of the used hardware. Besides, you can acquire, set, and display the images with wxPropView.

With the mvVirtualDevice it is possible to grab images from the hard disk e.g. to test own images for test runs. You also can program the hardware specific part without using MATRIX VISION hardware, yet.

Drivers and applications for Windows XP, Vista, 7 (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.
