Operator CameraRgbAreaBase

Operator Library: Hardware Platform

This operator represents the image data interface between a RGB area scan camera in RGB Camera Link base configuration mode and VisualApplets. This operator requires one VisualApplets resource of type CAM. Set the resource index for the camera in the resource dialog. The resource index 0 maps the camera to port A and the resource index 1 maps to the camera to port B. Check 'Allocation of Device Resources' for more information.

In the output link, the maximum possible image dimensions have to be specified. The size of the actual transfered images however may be less but must not exceed this parameterized maximum.

By setting this parameter to Dval_Disabled it is possible to support cameras which do not fully comply with the CameraLink specification. In disabled mode, control signals Lval and Fval are used to decode pixels. In enabled mode, the additional Dval signal is used. In general users should not modify this parameter!
