Waveform Monitor, Vectorscope, RGB Parade Video Software SDK – API Library

Develop your own comprehensive video measurement, calibration or monitoring system

Our Video API library includes a real time multi-function software Waveform Monitor, a software Vectorscope, a software Histogram function and a software RGB/YUV parade function supporting both SD and HD color spaces.

Now you can easily develop and integrate a set of software based video processing tools into your next video engineering application ensuring your video levels, color balance, saturation and luminance distribution are where you want them to be.

These well recognized video test calibration and measurement instruments have been a real boon to our film to HD video imaging system development. Knowing the video properties of the converted film frames as they were captured live ensure that the final output YUV video files are well within specification for proper AVCHD, H.264, MP4 and MPEG-2 post production work. We are now making these video functions available to video system developers, broadcasting facilities and post producton houses for color grading.

Our video API library offers functionality in both standard definition (SD using BT.601) and high definition (HD using BT.709) color spaces, it enables auto window scaling, it can do multiple instances of itself, engage auto sampling/decimating along with many other features. Our User Guide will have the details – see download link below.

The updated video SDK release now supports reading both file based uncompressed 24bit RGB bitmaps through byte arrays or buffering paradigms for real time operation using MEMSTREAM or byte arrays. Live real-time video capture and post processing is now possible depending on your application goals.

Now you can supply live image sequences in real-time or re-call stored image sequences for your off-line post work.

Development Environment
Windows VB.NET, C#, C++ — (Mar 3, 2012) see update below for changes

System Requirements
Windows platform running XP Pro and Windows 7 (32bit and 64bit).
P4 2.8GHz or better, 2GB RAM
OpenGL supported graphics card, Release 1.0 or higher
DVD ROM player

This Video Software Development Kit (SDK) comes with a series of library functions in standard DLL form and a Developers Users Guide to explain the details of use. The guide will contain information on the video instruments along with sample code descriptions.


Update Update [March 3, 2012]
Version 2 of this SDK has been revamped. It is underway and is built on our work done on the MultiScopeLite product. Issues relating to 64bit O/S compliance are fixed. The video scope DLL’s are now functional libraries and can be easily plugged in into the *.Net interface for use in C# and VB 32 bit and 64 bit developments. Released April 2012.

Users and Developers Guide Update [May 30, 2013]. See link below for current update.

Important Note: There is no technical support for this product other than pre-sales consultation. It is expected when using any SDK in general the developer is already familiar with software development environments, the technical subject and coding principles. The included users and developers guide has all the information needed to yield a successful integration. These software tools are no different. Follow the examples, the sample code, the install and distribution suggestions in the developers guide.

OpenGL v1.0 or later is all that is needed. The video instrument software is coded in C# on Studio 2010. The test application and test images are available as a download if requested.
