New versatile interface designed with the user in mind

Xeneth 2.6 handles all Xenics infrared cameras independent of wavelength sensitivity, interface, resolution and pixel size. The default view of the GUI will only show the key control parameters next to the infrared camera footage. Upon changing the view from beginner, over expert to guru, extra features become visible and adjustable.

An entire set of processing and post-processing tools is available to extract all useful information and to optimize your infrared images. When using a thermally calibrated camera, the software is capable of doing a complete radiometric analysis (thermography) that takes object, environmental and optic characteristics into account.

Furthermore Xeneth 2.6 lets you export recorded infrared images to common image formats which can be viewed and analyzed in 3rd party software. Another new feature of Xeneth 2.6 is the extended calibration wizard which lets you easily optimize image correction calibration data when for instance a different lens is used.

Strong connection with the Software Development Kit

The link between GUI and SDK is stronger than ever in Xeneth 2.6. We provide tooltips with programming names for all Xenics’ camera features, giving developers complete access to all needed information to control the infrared camera. Moreover, the existing documentation is extended with detailed guidelines, extra samples and additional documentation on image filters.

Versatile Software Development Kit

The Xeneth 2.6 SDK provides a C, C++ and C# interface for all Xenics infrared cameras. The basic philosophy is similar to that of the GUI. On one hand it offers an extended set of basic application examples making it straightforward to build custom applications. On the other hand the SDK offers access to all documents and details required by demanding developers. Furthermore the interface is extended, but it stays backwards compatible with earlier versions.

The Xeneth 2.6 SDK is tested on all recent versions of Windows – starting from Windows XP up to Windows 10. For C and C++, binaries are built for Ubuntu and Fedora Linux distributions.

A Xeneth 2.6 LabVIEW SDK is also optionally available. After installing this package, examples and LabVIEW VI components are fully integrated in the LabVIEW development environment.
