Xeneth Software

Versatile software interface designed with the user in mind

Xeneth handles all Xenics infrared cameras regardless of wavelength sensitivity, interface, resolution and image format. The default view of the GUI (Graphical User Interface) will only show the key control parameters next to the infrared camera image. Upon changing the view from beginner, over expert to guru, extra settings become visible and adjustable.

An entire set of processing and post-processing tools is available to extract all useful information and to optimize your infrared images. When using a thermally calibrated camera (for selected cameras only!), the software is capable of doing a complete radiometric analysis (thermography) that takes object, environmental and optic characteristics into account.

Furthermore Xeneth lets you export recorded infrared images to common image formats which can be viewed and analyzed in 3rd party software. Another new feature of Xeneth (available from version 2.7) is the extended calibration wizard which lets you easily optimize image correction calibration data without using real-time camera images.

Strong connection with the Software Development Kit (SDK)

The link between GUI and SDK is stronger than ever in Xeneth . We provide tooltips with programming names for all Xenics’ camera features, giving developers complete access to all needed information to control the infrared camera. Moreover, the existing documentation is extended with detailed guidelines, extra samples and additional documentation on image filters.

Versatile Software Development Kit

The Xeneth SDK provides a C++ interface (including C and C# samples) for all Xenics infrared cameras. The basic philosophy is similar to that of the GUI. On the one hand, it offers an extended set of basic application examples making it straightforward to build custom applications. On the other hand, the SDK offers access to all documents and details required by demanding developers. Furthermore, the interface is extended, but it stays backwards compatible with earlier versions.

The Xeneth SDK is tested on all recent versions of Windows – starting from Windows XP up to Windows 10. For C and C++, binaries are built for Ubuntu and Fedora Linux distributions.

System requirements

In order to run Xeneth, the minimum system requirements are:

  • Windows 7, 8 and 10 (32/64 bit) for USB3 Vision cameras.
  • Windows XP (32 bit, SP3 minimal), Vista (32/64 bit, SP2 minimal), Windows 7, 8 and 10 (32/64 bit) for cameras not using USB3 Vision.
  • 2 GB RAM or more
  • Gigabit Ethernet network interface for GigE Vision cameras
  • 100 Mb Ethernet network interface for cameras using the proprietary Xenics network protocol.
  • USB 2.0 Hi-Speed ports for cameras with a USB interface
  • USB 3.1 Gen 1 for USB3 Vision cameras.
  • A frame grabber compatible with Xeneth for cameras with a Camera Link™ interface:
  • Any other Camera Link™ frame grabber that supports serial communication via the standard CLALLSERIAL interface can be used to set up a command and control session.
  • A CoaxPress frame grabber with a Genicam transport layer (GenTL) interface for cameras with a CoaXpress interface. Xeneth is tested with :
  • USB Memory stick for installation
  • Display resolution of 1024×768 or higher (1920×1080 preferred)
  • High speed storage. For instance the Cheetah CL camera (640×512, 16 bit, 400 Hz) can produce in excess of 245 MB/s.
  • CPU that supports the SSE2/SSE4.1 instruction set.
