Hi John,

 

I see from the Point Grey website that 2.8 of the SDK has been released, and they list one of the fixed items is allowing multiple Black Fly cameras to work on Ubuntu.  Have you tried using that SDK?

All,

 

I find I cannot run Area Detector  for two Point Grey Blackfly GIGE cameras on Linux at the same time. The error (image consistency) appears to come from the Point Grey driver. It works as long as only one camera is acquiring images. 

 

I am using ADPointGrey 2-1 and see that it includes libflycapture.so.2.7.3.13.

 

( EPICS 3.14.12.5 on Scientific Linux 7, a 3.10 kernel)

 

I contacted Point Grey and found that they had withdrawn the Flycap 2.7 SDK for Linux. In their words:

 

""There was an issue with our 2.7 release of FlyCapture SDK prevented customers
from streaming from multiple GigE cameras at the same time."

 

So before I sink much more time into this I was wondering if anyone has experience running multiple Blackfly GIGE cameras on Linux? On Windows?

 

Regards,
