Several replies to posts from IC Support mention v1.4.

Has it been released yet?

If so, how does one update v1.3 Professional.

If not, can you comment on a release date?

Thanks,
Jeff

IC Imaging Control 1.4 provides the following new features:

- Overlay functionality:
IC Imaging Control 1.4 introduces a powerful overlay object that allows you to draw text and graphics onto a video stream. A new overlay event allows you to modify the overlay for every frame of an image stream. This allows you to draw a frame count, clock or sensor information on the video stream. All overlay features are available for AVI recording as well as for image buffer processing. The new sample "Creating an Overlay" shows how to use the OverlayBitmap Bitmap Object.

- Zoom and Scroll:
IC Imaging Control 1.4 provides built in zooming and scrolling. Now it is easy to scale the live image in a way that it fits the size of the control or fills the screen completely. The new sample "Scroll and Zoom" shows every aspect of this functionality.

- Pause capture:
With this new property it is possible to reduce the CPU load for a variety of applications as well as a fast way of starting AVI capture without latency. All applications that grab one image once in a while may now keep the image stream initialized and do not have to use a sequence of startLive - stopLive.
The example "Capturing an AVI" file shows how the LiveCapturePause property is used in the context of saving an image stream to an AVI file. The user can see a live preview and start the AVI recording with a mouse click without any latency. For detailed information refer to the property reference ICImagingControl.LiveCapturePause Property.

- Time Stamps:
IC Imaging Control 1.4 introduces time stamps for every frame of the image stream. As soon as an image stream is initialized (with a call to liveStart) a reference timer for this stream is started. The time stamps for each frame are dependant on this stream timer. The current value of the stream timer can be retrieve from the property ICImagingControl.ReferenceTimeCurrent. With this information, an application can calculate the point in time when a frame was sent into the image stream.

- Vertical and Horizontal Flip:
If supported by the device, IC Imaging Control 1.4 supports horizontal and/or vertical flipping of the video stream.

- Property Default Values:
With IC Imaging Control 1.4 an application can retrieve the default values for all available device properties like BrightnessDefault, ContrastDefault etc.

-Device Lost Event:
If an application implements a handler for this event, it is called as soon as the the current device becomes invalid. This happens for example when the device gets unplugged from the bus.

-DCam Add-On:
An Add-On for handling special features of DCAM cameras from The Imaging Source and Sony is now included in IC Imaging Control 1.4.

-Y8 (Y800) Support:
IC Imaging Control 1.4 can handle Y8 and Y800 video formats for monochrome image streams. The new monochrome DCAM cameras DMK 21F04 and DBK 21F04 by The Imaging Source provide this video format.

- YUV 4:2:2 Memory Format:
In IC Imaging Control 1.4 you can specify YUV 4:2:2 as the pixel format for all image buffers.

-Live Display of RGB8 and Y8:
IC Imaging Control 1.4 now supports monochrome live display of RGB8 and Y8 video formats.

-Picture Property supports RGB8:
In IC Imaging Control 1.4 the picture property returns a correct picture object if the memory format is Y8.

Hello,

I am very sorry, but I have to tell you that the release of version 1.4 will be delayed again. We will not be able to release version 1.4 before the middle of next week.

I would like to apologize for the inconvenience that is caused by this delay.

Best regards
