Pixel gain control: Programmable (hardware), 17 gain levels from 0 to 17.4
Separate software gain controls for R, G, B: 17 gain levels from 0.01 to 2 with step 0.01
Output window modes: View port (from 2208 x 3000 to 8 x 8 with 8 pixels/1 line step positioning)
Frame Decimation (1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 1:4, 1:6)
Horizontal "mirroring"
Vertical "flipping"
Gamma, brightness and contrast control:
Programmable with lookup table
Trigger control:
The Meridian camera utilizes an IBIS4 sensor which has no snapshot mode. At the same time, the camera operating in video mode can receive an external signal via the external connector and mark the current frame. The driver and API allow the user application to distinguish the labeled frame and act according to requirements.
