pylon 5 – Faster, smaller, simpler!

With the pylon 5 Camera Software Suite Basler is the first camera manufacturer to provide software that uses the new GenICam 3 technology.

Faster: Thanks to GenICam 3, cameras now open about 4 times as fast as in the previous GenICam versions.

Smaller: GenICam 3 requires only about half as much memory in comparison with previous GenICam versions.

Both features are especially advantageous in systems with less performance. The new standard is also extensively backward compatible; no or only slight code modification of the existing software is necessary and even older Basler cameras profit from these innovations in pylon. Required changes are described in detail in the pylon Migration Guide.

Simpler: Thanks to the new possibility of simple copy deployment programs generated with the pylon SDK can be delivered to the end user as easy as never before. Thus pylon can be installed without conflict with machine vision software packages from other manufacturers based on GenICam technology.
