Release Notes: The live video stream player was switched from mplayer to VLCj, and this helped to reduce video latency from the camera down to almost realtime (20-40ms, below exposure time of a single frame at 25fps). The video playback GUI to review recorded clips was started. Another big progress is that we have completed our The JP4 RAW to DNG converter was completed, and a GUI was created for it.
Release Notes: The ElphelVision viewfinder software now has a professional realtime histogram as well as even more parameters and settings that can be configured. JP4 RAW recording is also possible now, but the Mplayer plugin for live demosaicing of the RAW video for previewing has not yet been implemented.
Release Notes: The ElphelVision viewfinder software passed its first 30 commits and is already able to display a live video feed from the camera under Windows and Linux, as well as receive image metadata, send commands and parameters to the camera to change exposure time, and start/stop video recording. There are two new videos available on the Apertus Videos page.
