BitFlow

bitflow_coaxpress_framegrabber.png

BitFlow has been developing industrial frame grabbers and software for the imaging industry since 1993. We specialize in interfacing to cameras with very high data/frame rates; working in environments with complex triggering and I/O requirements; and running in applications where every CPU cycle is precious. Our software is some of the easiest to use, yet incredibly powerful and reliable.

BitFlow frame grabbers are supported by the following 3rd Party Software packages:  A&B Software ImageWarp and ActiveBF, Aqsense SAL3D, Cognex Vision Pro, The Mathworks MATLAB, Media Cybernetics ImagePro, MVTec HALCON, National Instruments Labview, NorPix StreamPix and TroublePix, OpenCV, TWAIN, Stemmer Vision Blox, IO Industries Video Savant.
