This plug-in driver is available as part of the Obsolete Driver Pack.
This driver supports the SAC10 camera. Certain other SAC models can be operated using the Video DirectShow driver.
SAC 8-bit cameras can be operated as webcams, via the Video DirectShow driver.
Exposure Mode controls whether the camera takes a single image, and reads out the two fields in succession (resulting in slightly different exposure times), or takes two separate exposures, one for each field. Separate exposures ensures equal times for both fields, but results in an exposure that takes twice as long. Auto makes this choice automatically based on exposure time; 1 Expo/image always takes one exposure, and 2 Expo/image always takes two images. Use of the VBE correction is strongly recommended if using the single exposure mode.
Image Gain adjusts the amplfier gain, from 0% to 100%.
ADC Offset sets the offset level of the A/D converter.
Focus Mode selects whether to use the lower quality 8 bit (fast) mode or the higher quality but slower 16 bit (slow) mode, when Fast readout mode is enabled (available on Expose tab).
VBE Correction turns On or Off the "venetian blind" correction. This effect will result from slightly different exposure times on the even and odd fields. The CCD sensor cannot read out both fields simultaneously, which results in the slightly different exposure times when they are read out in succession. This setting should normally be turned on, espeically if using the single exposure per image mode.
Availability of this feature depends on Product Level.
