Photometrics releases its exclusive PVCAM universal programming interface, which supports Microsoft’s 64-bit Operating Systems such as Windows 7 and Microsoft Vista 64.

Photometrics' new 64-bit driver allows users to acquire RAM intensive image data and conduct high speed analysis.

Photometrics, a designer and manufacturer of high-performance CCD and EMCCD cameras for the life sciences, has announced the release of the 64-bit version of its exclusive PVCAM universal programming interface. This new driver adds support for Microsoft’s 64-bit Operating Systems such as Windows 7 and Microsoft Vista 64.

PVCAM, which stands for Programmable Virtual Camera Access Method, is a set of software library routines that implements a camera’s operations in a hardware-independent, platform-independent (“virtual”) suite of function calls. Once an application has been written to control one PVCAM-enabled camera, every PVCAM-enabled camera is then compatible with the application. The transparent PVCAM interface supports a wide variety of popular third-party imaging packages.

The new 64-bit driver allows access to memory higher than the 32-bit limit of 4GB, which empowers users to acquire RAM intensive image data and streamlines workflow by enabling high speed analysis.
