Device Drivers

National Instruments Vision Acquisition Software

For many camera interface options, Durango requires National Instruments Vision Acquisition Software (NI-VAS). NI-VAS may be downloaded for a trial evaluation.

CMU 1394 Drivers

The free CMU 1394 drivers from Carnegie Mellon University are supported by Durango and are compatible with a wide range of digital cameras under Windows XP. We look forward to these drivers being someday available for Windows 7.

Imaging Source IC Capture

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.
