Using the Compression Beyond Camera Feature With Third-Party Software#

The Basler Compression Beyond camera feature is GenTL compliant.

This means that third-party software can decode the compressed image, but our pylon runtime package is mandatory, because it contains the Basler code books required.

Basler pylon offers a GenTL producer. The third-party software (such as, e.g., Halcon) needs to have a GenTL consumer. In this case, it will be possible to use third-party software together with Baslers Compression Beyond camera feature.

Other third-party software without GenTL support will not allow the use of the Compression Beyond camera feature.
