As the core development platform within Teledyne DALSA’s Sapera Vision Software family, Sapera Essential bundles image acquisition and control with image processing tools to provide developers with the critical functionality to design, develop and deploy high-performance machine vision systems - all offered via quick and easy access.

Sapera Essential has the ability to grab images from wide range of area and line scan colour and monochrome camera. In addition, it supports image acquisition from standard format cameras like GigE Vision, Camera Link, analog, and LVDS. The acquired images can be displayed with non-destructive overlaid graphical annotations.

Sapera Essential includes a powerful frame grabber configuration and camera setup utility plus a suite of image processing tools.

Comprehensive hardware support is provided as a value-add platform within, Sapera Essential which supports Teledyne DALSA cameras and frame grabbers as well as hundreds of 3rd-party camera models across all common interfaces formats like GigE Vision and Camera Link as well as emerging new image acquisition standards. Sapera Vision Software offers royalty free run-time licenses for select image processing functions when combined with Teledyne DALSA hardware products.
