Compression Beyond and More with the pylon Camera Software Suite 6.1
March 20, 2020
The new pylon 6.1 release is now available for download and contains the following new features:
Support for Compression Beyond
With the new version 6.1 of the pylon Camera Software Suite, the image compression of ace 2 Pro cameras can be controlled and compressed images can be decompressed. With the new pylon version–and thanks to Compression Beyond–you can benefit from increased transmission speed and reduced bandwidth requirements.
Support of CoaXPress 2.0 also for Linux x86
Starting with version 6.1, pylon offers support for CoaXPress 2.0, not only on Windows but now also on Linux x86.
Improved Features pane
The Features pane in the pylon Viewer has been improved. By reducing the navigation to two levels, display and navigation in the features of the selected camera become clearer.
The pylon Viewer is even more user-friendly thanks to the ability to easily create your own Features panes easily.
To help you to quickly find the relevant features for certain work steps, pylon 6.1 allows you to make a selection from a list of predefined common tasks. The features relevant to the selected task are then highlighted in the Features pane, making them easy to find.
pylon Product Improvement Program
At Basler, we are constantly working to improve our products and services for the benefit of our customers. Therefore, we would like to know which features and functions of our cameras and software are used by our customers and we would be happy if you could support us in this effort. In pylon 6.1 we have implemented a function that collects information about camera and software settings and their usage. The function requires the permission of the user; it does not collect any traceable or personal information and works without any impact on system performance. It will help us to tailor our products to the specific needs of our customers and to further improve customer satisfaction with Basler products.
