Welcome to the manual for IDS peak.
The IDS peak manual provides you with a lot of additional information for the use of our IDS industrial cameras.
The manual is therefore divided into several chapters created for different target groups.
Beginners in image processing
You will find general information on the basics of camera technology and image processing in the Camera basics chapter.
Users of uEye+ cameras (U3/GV models)
In the camera feature reference you will find the features of the SFNC standard supported by IDS industrial cameras, as well as manufacturer-dependent features. Have a look at this chapter to use your camera in its full performance range.
Programmers of camera applications
Here you will find information about programming your own applications with the IDS peak API and the IDS peak IPL. The descriptions are supplemented by numerous code examples for the programming languages C++, C# and Python.
Consider the basic principles when working with IDS peak. This makes programming easier for you, and you can solve error cases more easily or even avoid them.
In the transport layer feature reference you will find the features of the GenTL SFNC standard supported by IDS cameras, as well as manufacturer-dependent features.
Users of uEye cameras (UI models)
The D: Operating uEye cameras with IDS peak chapter provides information for operating uEye cameras (UI models) with IDS peak. The Notes for usage chapter provides information on limitations that currently still need to be observed.
