Opto Viewer

With every Imaging Module there comes the free OptoViewer. It allows to easily install the Camera, drive the different light sources and includes many additional functions such as: 

  • Simple user interface
  • Camera, coaxial and ring light settings
  • Settings presets files
  • Pre-calibrated magnifications settings
  • Illumination adjustment
  • Flat field correction
  • One-click export to image files storage
  • Crosshair | grid | scale generator
  • Drawing ⁄ annotations (basic, shapes, bitmaps, text
  • Standard measurement functions
    Point to point distance | angle ⁄ focus

Acquisition SDK

For those willing to integrate Imaging Modules in their own application, the Opto SDK is available. 
It features an easy to use API to identify and connect modules, access parameters including the internal spatial calibration. Opto SDK also includes powerful yet easy to use functions for image display, overlays and regions of interest management (C/C++ API only) making it much more than just an acquisition SDK.

In addition to C/C++ APIs, support for Python as well as NI LabVIEW and NI Vision Builder AI is also available.


  • Windows x64
  • C/C++ API
  • Python wrapper

solinoTM CPI

Artificial sight ready for AI in analysing the visual appearance of surfaces based on the Reflectance Imaging Technology.

Solino CPI algorithms combine images captured with varying light angles of incidence to generate a particular image featuring a complete, highly accurate digital footprint of a recorded surface. The enormous amount of information stored in a solinoTM dataset far exceeds that of standard image acquisition. As a result, solino technology enables new levels of evaluation criteria to be established since the solino algorithms are able to detect surface anomalies that have not yet been characterised in any specification or standard.

OptoViewer Plugins

OptoViewer capabilities can be considerably increased by using plugins. Plugins are tools that can be added to OptoViewer to access:

  • Image analysis and pre-processing functions: vignetting correction, focus monitoring, ...

  • Job specific tasks: microfluidic flowrate measurement, drilled holes inspection, particles counting, tracking, ...

Plugins can be generic or customer specific. Opto will continue to extend the portfolio of existing plugins, thus giving the opportunity to Imaging Modules and OptoViewer’s users to get the best for less.
