Software Developers Kit (SDK)
The Software Developers Kit (SDK) is a tool that helps systems intgrators to deploy FLIR thermal imaging cameras in large, existing or new, security networks. The SDK will accelerate any application programming with FLIR thermal imaging cameras. If you are a systems integrator that wants to build its own system utilising thermal imaging cameras for a security application, then the SDK together with FLIR thermal imaging cameras will give you a jump start in your task. The SDK will allow you to fully exploit the possibilities that FLIR's unique infrared camera connectivity technology offers and combine camera functionality with other sensors and detection devices.
|Drivers for FLIR's thermal imaging cameras
Thanks to their embedded connectivity technology and the SDK toolkit, FLIR's thermal imaging cameras become manageable network nodes for your application.
|Connectivity to other sensors
A security network consists of various types of sensors that need to work together in order to offer maximum coverage. Radar, perimeter and ground sensors, CCTV cameras, thermal imaging cameras and other sensors need to be connected in "slew to cue" configurations. The SDK allows integrators to easily command thermal imaging cameras to be a slave to other sensors like radars and fences. The SDK tool kit allows for easy integration of all these systems into turnkey applications.
The SDK toolkit allows multiple users to monitor and adjust sensors throughout the security network. Users can remotely position sensors on an IP network and in real-time, monitor camera video and configure camera field of view, camera tilt angle, focus, sensitivity and contrast. Rules, with variable authority can be set up to define which user has access to configue or control certain sensors.
Customisable User Interfaces
By using the SDK toolkit you can focus on the design of your own user interface to control multiple security sensors or integrate thermal imaging cameras into existing command and control applications.
|Image post-processing options
||An optional Windows DirectShow Based Video Player ActiveX grants integrators access to embed advanced image post-processing functions like electronic stabilisation. Long range cameras for border protection are often installed on a mast or tower which is susceptible to extreme climatic conditions. Using the electronic stabilisation option, the thermal image on your monitor will be stable even when the tower or mast is slighty moving.
