Jenoptik Software Development Kit (SDK)

For software developers and system integrators (OEM) we provide on request a free Software Development Kit (SDK) with sample programs for integrating our ProgRes cameras.

This provides the possibility for system integrators and OEM partners to optimally integrate our cameras in image acquisition / image processing systems or existing software environments or even to develop a new graphical user interface adapted to special requirements.

Programming language

The following programs are part of the SDK

  • the example program „MexWin.exe“, with the ability to test nearly all functions without any programming effort in advance. The source code of the “MexWin.exe“ test program is also part of the SDK.
  • the program "Camera TypeViewer", providing an easy and fast overview over the most important parameters of the ProgRes® cameras, and hence offering even simpler integration.
  • our "MexLogMan" allows fast, easy and in particular targeted search for errors in testing the source code.

Control parameters

­The following parameters can be controlled by the SDK sample program „MexWin.exe“ without any programming efforts:

  • Full control of exposure time, gamma, saturation, gain factor (analogue and digital), white reference
  • Image resolution for Live & Capture
  • Storage of captured images in .tiff, .RAW, .bmp file format
  • Color-Processing (selection of various color matrixes / color interpolation algorithms)
  • Control of the Peltier element (on / off)
  • Firmware updates
  • Creation of individual shading files (white- and black-shading)
  • Control of read-out speed of the image sensor, which provides control of image quality
  • Full control of camera trigger functionalities
  • Control of 4 cameras at the same time (display of 4 live images simultaneously is possible)
  • “CxxWin.exe“ allows for continuous exposure metering (source code is provided)

Operating systems / camera support:

The Windows SDK supports ALL Jenoptik imaging products and ProgRes cameras under Windows XP / VISTA / Windows 7 / Windows 8 / 8.1.

The Software Development Kit for Apple Macintosh supports the FireWire-based Imaging Modules and ProgRes® cameras (MAC OS 10.4 / 10.5/ 10.6).

The Linux SDK supports the FireWire models of the Jenoptik imaging products and ProgRes Firewire cameras (Linux Ubunto 12.04 LTS).

TWAIN Interface: Secure Transmission and Processing of Image Data

You can use a TWAIN interface to transfer image data securely and reliably to other application software, giving you the flexibility to process the images using that software. The TWAIN standard software protocol governs the communication between your application software and the imaging unit (ProgRes® camera and CapturePro software).

You receive the ProgRes® CapturePro software plus the TWAIN interfacefree when you buy one of our microscope cameras.

More Information at:


  • Secure: Transfer data to software programs using the TWAIN interface.
  • Reliable: Easily control communication between software applications and imaging units.
  • Up-to-date: Free updates available to download.
