Common Vision Blox - Support


Downloads for Common Vision Blox

CVB supports both Windows (7, 8, 10) and Linux (Ubuntu/Debian based) for 32 and 64 bit Intel and ARM architectures. The fully implemented GenICam standard in conjunction with GigE Vision and USB3 Vision on all platforms provides complete hardware independence.

Get CVB software and drivers

Sophisticated acquisition drivers for all current interfaces like USB3 Vision, GigE Vision, Camera Link, CoaXPress etc. are included.

The following CVB tools offer new functionality in CVB 2019:

CVB Image Manager and CVB CameraSuite

  • Linux support has been extended to include Ubuntu 18.04.
  • New APIs have been released that are spreading across the CVB tools. CVB++ for C++, CVB.NET for .NET and CVBpy for Python support. Together, these APIs build on the existing API (this will not go away) to use the power of CVB in an easier to use and, crucially, an easier to maintain object-oriented way. The new Python support is proving very popular and offers some real advantages for cross-platform development and rapid development.

CVB Foundation Package

  • The Foundation Package has seen a lot of growth in the last few releases, all with no increase in cost. The aim is to make CVB Foundation Package the default choice as the base package for CVB applications.
  • OPC UA client and server communication functions to enable factory communications.
  • Processing of images from polarisation cameras with sensors from SONY and Teledyne DALSA.

CVB Spectral

  • A new tool to allow the acquisition and basic processing of data from hyperspectral cameras and ENVI cubes. This rapidly-growing technology has applications in the food, recycling and pharmaceutical industries in particular, where it allows a chemical analysis of materials. A further area of applications is colorimetry, where wavelength-correct colour images (RGB, Lab) can be created. This tool helps by allowing the data to be ‘sliced’ by wavelength or spatial domains for further processing by other image processing tools. It also allows the creation of real calibrated colour data for applications where accurate colour information is an important part of quality analysis.

Open Source Licenses in Common Vision Blox (CVB)

Like many software packages, CVB has been partly implemented using Open Source libraries.
