A Plug-in Server

Scanbox has a memory mapped mechanism to share the incoming data stream with other processes that intend to consume the data in real-time. Examples of simple uses of such data sharing include the calculation of rolling averages, displaying a real-time histogram, or generating a montage display for volumetric data. Of course, different experiments may need…

A montage display for real-time display of volumetric data

  By default, Scanbox displays the incoming image stream on its main window. Thus, during¬†volumetric scanning, one sees the incoming images as depth is changing over time. ¬†If one is imaging only a handful of optical planes, it is difficult to see what is really going on. A different way to visualize the data in…

A rolling average plug-in for scanbox

Scanbox offers a memory-mapped¬†interface mechanism to expose incoming data to other processes. This facilitates a wide rage of customization by users that may want to display their data in different ways or do some on-line processing not currently supported by Scanbox. We previously provided one example of how a real-time histogram of the data can…
