Subject: RE: Does areaDetector Prosilica driver support Manta-series camera ?

Hi,

It does, but they may be presented in a different, less user friendly way, I've included screenshots of the prosilica GC series screens. 

The aravis library exposes the genicam data of the camera, and my wrapper just provides a parameter for each element in this data. I use a python script at build time to parse the genicam xml and create a suitable database and edm screen with all the relevant parameters. This has the advantage that it can support new cameras very easily, but you lose any code that the manufacturer put in their SDK because they couldn't implement it in the genicam layer. 
E.g. Changing the sync outputs requires you to select the sync output you would like to change before changing its level, polarity, etc.

As Michael said, it is missing code to set a camera IP address, although I have some test code that allows connection by IP address. 

Thanks,
Tom Cobb
