Designed to augment the features of PIXCI ® imaging boards,
XCAP puts image processing power at fingertip control. Under Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, or 7, or under Linux, with a
few clicks of the mouse, easy-to-use menus and dialogs allow simple or complex imaging tasks to be effortlessly completed.
IMAGING SOLUTIONS
XCAP is engineered to provide solutions across diverse imaging
technologies. Quality control, medical imaging, microscopy,
machine vision, research & development, and varied applications
requiring motion capture, image enhancement, calibrated measurement, particle analysis, multi-camera imaging, or image archival, are
all easily accomplished.
Together, a PIXCI ® frame grabber and XCAP seamlessly integrate
most popular video cameras with a broad array of features: individual, sequence, or triggered capture and display; video enhancement and psuedo-color; examination of image details; an extensive
library of image processing functions; graphical annotation; image
export, import, and printing; and programmable video resolution.1
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY
XCAP combines an easy-to-use Java-based graphical user interface
with highly efficient ‘‘C’’ and assembler image processing routines.
Multi-threading allows virtually unlimited views, graphs, and analyses of one or multiple images.
Simultaneous presentation and manipulation of multiple images,
whether from PIXCI ® frame buffers, TWAIN devices, or from disk, of
varying resolutions and pixel formats, are all built-in features of
XCAP.
XCAP includes a scripting language, user-defined tool bars, and
non-procedural ‘‘spread sheet’’ programming for automating image
analysis and inspection tasks. Other applications, in virtually any
programming language, can remotely control XCAP through scripts.

XCAP VERSIONS
INTEGRATED CAMERA CONTROLS
IMAGING DEVICES:
The XCAP-Lite version provides access
to PIXCI® imaging board(s) and can also
load, view, and save images and image
sequences to/from files, while PIXCI®
imaging board(s) are present and open
for use. XCAP-Lite also exports customized video formats and camera serial
commands to assist programming
PIXCI® imaging boards via the XCLIB
‘‘C’’ library. For imaging boards capturing
directly into host computer memory,
XCAP-Lite is limited to 64 MBytes of
frame buffer memory; no limitation on
frame buffer memory when used with the
PIXCI® CL3SD or PIXCI® SI2. XCAPLite is provided with each PIXCI® imaging board.
Built-in, camera-specific, on-screen graphical controls for selected cameras that are
configured via RS-232, I2C, or Camera Link, integrate the camera’s controls within
XCAP! No need to also run the camera manufacturer’s software - both PIXCI® imaging
board and camera can be configured together!
Supports any PIXCI ® A, A310, D, D24, D32, D2X,
D3X, CL1, CL2, CL3SD, E1, E1DB, E4, E4DB,

ECB1-34, ECB2, EL1, EL1DB, ELS2, SI, SI1, SI2,
SI4, SV2, SV3, SV4, SV5, or SV7 series imaging
board.7
For selected cameras configured by physical switch settings, XCAP provides an onscreen virtual camera and switches - setting the on-screen switches to match the physical switches easily configures the PIXCI® imaging board to match the camera!
Up to eight (32 bit O.S.) or sixteen (64 bit O.S.)
identical PIXCI ® series imaging boards can be
operated simultaneously.8 XCAP-Std version also
allows operating up to four non-identical PIXCI ®
imaging boards.
The XCAP-Ltd version provides access
to PIXCI® imaging board(s) and includes
all features of the -Lite version, adding
graphics, load/save images and image
sequences in additional formats, and
more image viewer and convenience
features. XCAP-Ltd can load, view, and
save single images and image sequences
even when the PIXCI® imaging board(s)
are not present. XCAP-Ltd supports full
access to as much as 4 GBytes of frame
buffer memory under 32 bit systems, and
is limited to 8 GByte of frame buffer
memory under 64 bit systems. 2
The XCAP-Std version provides access
to PIXCI® imaging board(s) and includes
all features of the -Ltd version, also enabling use of all image processing, measurement, graphics, load/save, image
viewer, and analysis features. XCAP-Std
can load, view, analyze, and save preexisting images and image sequences
even when the PIXCI® imaging board(s)
are not present. XCAP-Std supports full
access to as much as 4 GBytes of frame
buffer memory under 32 bit systems, and
to as much as 16 EByte of frame buffer
memory under 64 bit systems. 3
The XCAP-Viewer version allows loading
and viewing single images and image
sequences from files, such as those
saved by XCAP-Lite, XCAP-Ltd, or
XCAP-Std. XCAP-Viewer also allows
browsing the hundreds of processing,
measurement, analysis, load/save, and
graphics features that can be applied to
images and allows browsing XCAP’s
integrated camera controls.
1. Features dependent upon hardware options, or upon a specific version of the
PIXCI® imaging card, function only in conjunction with required hardware.
2,3. The maximum available computer based frame buffer memory is also limited
by the computer hardware, configuration, and operating systems.
4. The PIXCI® CL3SD and CL1 are customized for one, or a group of similar,
cameras and can’t be used as a generic Camera Link imaging card.
5. Support for various video formats, resolution, triggering and other features are
dependent upon specific version(s) of the PIXCI® imaging card, and are effective
only in conjunction with required hardware.

Ready-to-Run Image Analysis Software for PIXCI ® Imaging Boards
Notes: (A) For -Lite, the imaging board is assumed installed and open for use, otherwise -Lite provides the same
features as -Viewer. (C) For -Lite and -Viewer, images may not be loaded directly from an Internet URL, or saved
directly to an FTP URL. (E) A combination of the characteristics of PIXCI® imaging cards, operating systems, and of
software. The PIXCI® CL3SD and SI2 have on-board frame buffer memory, other PIXCI® imaging cards use computer based frame buffer memory. The PIXCI® CL1, CL2, D, D24, D32, D2X, D3X, SI, SV2, SV3, SV4, and SV5 are
designed to access up to 4 GB of computer memory. The PIXCI® A310, E1, E1DB, E4, E4DB, E8, E8DB, EB1,
EB1-PoCL, EC1, ECB1, ECB1-34, ECB2, EL1, EL1DB, ELS2, SI1, SI4, and SV7 are designed to access up to
16 EByte of computer memory (a theoretical limit, as no currently available PC provides 16 EByte of memory). For
-Lite, a maximum of 64 MByte of computer based frame buffer memory is supported. On 32 bit systems, -Std and
XCAP-Ltd support up to 4 GBytes of computer based frame buffer memory. On 64 bit systems, XCAP-Std supports
up to 16 EByte of computer based frame buffer memory; XCAP-Ltd supports up to 8 GByte of computer based frame
buffer memory. The maximum available computer based frame buffer memory is also limited by the computer
hardware, configuration, and memory needed by the operating system. (F) Camera specific controls provided for cameras supported by PIXCI® ELS2, SI, SI1, SI2, and SI4, and for most digital cameras supported by PIXCI® CL1, CL2,
CL3SD, D, D24, D32, D2X, D3X, E1, E1DB, E4, E4DB, E8, E8DB, EB1, EB1-PoCL, EC1, ECB1, ECB1-34, ECB2,
EL1, and EL1DB; the ’PIXCI® Camera Info’ feature shows the specific, customized, support provided for each camera. (G) For -Lite and -Viewer, the View, Palette feature does not include save, load, import, or export, nor the
‘‘Extract Bright/Dark Reference’’ features. (H) For -Lite and -Viewer, the Examine, Pixel Peek feature does not
include save. (I) For -Lite and -Viewer, plotting features do not include statistics, save, or export options. For
-Viewer, plotting features do not include printing. (J) For -Ltd, -Lite, and -Viewer, the Modify, Set feature does not
include non-rectangular regions. (K) For -Ltd, -Lite, and -Viewer, the Measure features do not include calibration.
(L) For -Ltd, -Lite, and -Viewer, the Line Profile is limited to straight lines. (M) Subject to the amount of frame buffer
memory versus image resolution yielding more than one frame buffer. (N) For Bayer output digital color cameras with
software providing white balance and color corrections. The -Lite provides automatic, continuous, white balance only
for SILICON VIDEO® cameras. The -Lite does not provide custom color calibration from a Macbeth chart or other
color reference. (O) Software implemented AGC/AEC is provided for selected cameras; of those, -Lite provides
AGC/AEC only for SILICON VIDEO® cameras. (P) For -Lite, the Sequence Capture does not include the time stamp
feature, nor the strobe features added by software (as selected in the Sequence Capture dialog); any strobe features
provided by the PIXCI® imaging board or camera (either inherent or selected in the Capture & Adjust dialog) are
available. (Q) For -Lite, the ‘‘triggered’’ sequence capture is provided when the camera is being triggered (often
referred to as ‘‘Async Reset Mode’’); sequence capture from a free-running camera where the trigger or event is handled separately is not provided. (R) For -Lite, the image printing feature supports only the operating system’s built-in
image printing feature(s), not printing via EPIX® imaging drivers. (S) For -Lite and -Viewer, plotting features do not
include save or export options. For -Viewer, plotting features do not include printing. (T) For -Lite, the sequence capture to virtual memory is limited to using 1 GByte of virtual memory For -Ltd, the sequence capture to virtual memory
is limited to using 4 GByte of virtual memory. The operating system’s configuration may impose additional limitations.
(U) Interactive control of the lens is provided, but not automatic aperture or automatic focus features. (V) Software
implemented pixel normalization is provided for SILICON VIDEO® and other selected cameras; of those, -Lite does
not provide pixel normalization in generic Camera Link mode. (W95) Feature available only under Windows 95, 98,
and ME. (Win) Feature available only under Windows.
