StreamPix 9
Go to Norpix
Go to Machine Vision Software

StreamPix is Norpix’s flag ship software product. It is designed to stream images to disk in real time at high speed. With StreamPix 9, it is possible to view, control and acquire from single or multiple cameras simultaneously, all in the same user interface. StreamPix provides a complete management console for cameras and simplifies the setup, control and acquisition for up to 16-cameras per computer.

StreamPix is ideal for identifying and preventing real-time production line issues. e.g. When a paper-break event is detected, StreamPix software automatically marks the event in the video recording. Stand-by teams can then easily review the pre-event and post-event video by using the slow motion and frame-by-frame playback modes present in the software tools.

Migration to version 9 is free for customers who have purchased StreamPix 8 or upgraded to version 8 as of April 1st, 2021. Additionally, StreamPix 9 is no longer compatible with 32-bit versions and Windows XP.

StreamPix, key features:
• Four StreamPix versions available; Lite single and multiple, full single and multiple.
