About the Python API category

The CVBpy API (see also this post) is a new object oriented Python wrapper for the :cvb: SDK. It has been designed on top of the CVB++ wrapper and alongside the CVB.Net.

The currently supported Python versions are:

  • Python 3.6 on Windows
  • Python 3.5 on Ubuntu 16.04

The CVBpy wrapper is especially useful for testing acquisition and custom algorithms. As python does not offer an efficient mechanism for pixel access by default CVBpy interfaces with numpy if available. it is recommended to use a python distribution that already comes with numpy installed (e.g. Anaconda).
