You can operate the frame grabber using the Framegrabber SDK or the pylon Camera Software Suite.

However, marathon frame grabbers can't be operated with pylon, and Interface Cards can't be operated with the Framegrabber SDK. Therefore, see in the matrix below which frame grabber can be operated with which software:
