The pylon SDKs provide programming interfaces that are easy to learn and help increasing your productivity and the stability of your applications. Each SDK comes with many code samples for all kinds of functionalities, and includes a comprehensive developer documentation. The pylon SDKs are available for several programming languages such as C++, .Net/C#, C, and Java.
Your Benefits with the pylon APIs
80% time savings
Studies show that independent developers finished tasks in 20% or less of the time that they needed to complete the same tasks with other comparable APIs.
Fewer causes of failure, more stability
Thanks to the reduced programming scope and the simplicity of developing your own application, the search for errors is also greatly simplified. Many potential causes of failure are completely avoided from the start.
Flexibility in the development process
The pylon APIs make it possible, for example, to easily develop an application in Windows with USB cameras which will then be tested in a Linux-based ARM environment and used with GigE cameras. This makes pylon perfectly suitable for development of embedded applications.
GenICam without training
The pylon APIs rely on the GenICam standard. The complex details of GenICam are encapsulated by the pylon APIs. You can benefit from the advantages of GenICam during the development without needing specific knowledge of the standard.
pylon's copy deployment concept allows installing all necessary pylon components used for your application just by simple file copies. This saves time and reduces unnecessary complexity in your deployment process.
Download pylon for your operating system
