This software is included free of charge with all cameras, converters and grabbers manufactured by The Imaging Source.

Basler Pylon Driver / SDK

Operates with all Basler cameras that have an IEEE 1394a, IEEE 1994b or GigE Vision interface. Internal architecture is based on GenICam. Durango does not yet support the Pylon drivers.
