IOSPIRIT announces drivers for USB-cameras and USB-webcams and an independant USB-layer (IOUSB) for both Poseidon and AmigaOS 4.0. There is also a poll asking for your demands and opinions. Take part :)
We are very happy to announce that VHI-drivers for USB-digicams and USB-webcams
will soon be available.
It will soon be possible to also use more recent cameras with VHI Studio and benefit
from all its advantages. In contrast to a USB-cardreader VHI Studio communicates
directly with the camera via the VHI driver. This opens up completly new possibilities
to the user, making it possible to create timelapse-animations, use the digital camera
as a webcam, make changes to internal settings via a comfortable userinterface, correct
pictures using its correction-tools or just creating a quick overview of the pictures
in the camera.
Supported USB-webcams will be handled like a videoboard in VHI Studio.
In the last few weeks we´ve extended the VHI-standard and made the required changes
to VHI Studio to support USB. As the development of at least two API-incompatible USB-stacks
(Poseidon by Chris Hodges (for Highway/Subway, MorphOS, maybe Amithlon) and the USB Stack
contained in AmigaOS 4.0) on the AMIGA-market is forseeable, we furthermore have created
a stack-independant layer (called IOUSB) between the driver and the respective USB-stack
that will ensure support for the different systems.
Thanks to a close cooperation with E3B
(hardware of Highway/Subway) and Chris Hodges
(author of Poseidon) the support for Poseidon is already complete. Support for AmigaOS 4.0 and its
stack will be added when the development of AmigaOS 4.0 has completed. We´re already in contact
with the AmigaOS 4.0-developerteam, so that adapted drivers should be available from us for the
release of AmigaOS 4.0.
The first driver, which will support the Kodak®-Digicams DC 240, DC 280, DC 3400 and DC 5000,
currently undergoes final betatests with Poseidon.
Development of drivers for other devices will depend on the demands of the market. We therefore
have created a little poll and would appreciate a high number of participants.
To the poll
