AVT Software Downloads for AVT Cameras


AVT has recently introduced their new VIMBA™ Software Package VIMBA is available for both Windows and Linux operating systems, and is AVT's premier API also in supporting GigE Vision, Firewire, USB3 (and whatever other interfaces AVT may add over time).

AVT is also still offering and supporting their PvAPI GigE SW and their Firepackage SW as well. Which to choose? Here is a short guide, by any means not complete, but designed to give some help. If you are uncertain, please contact us.

  1. If you want USB3 you will need VIMBA!
  2. If you are currently using PvAPI or Firepackage and it is working well for you, you may continue to do so. There is no immediate need to change. This SW will still be available, however, enhancements, bug fixes, updates, etc. will be at AVT’s discretion and is not their primary SW focus. New development should move to VIMBA.
  3. If you are looking at MacOS (OSX), this is only currently supported under PvAPI.

For pretty much any other reason, you should be considering using VIMBA.
