ThorCam™ Software for Scientific and Compact USB Cameras

ThorCam is a powerful image acquisition software package that is designed for use with our cameras on 32- and 64-bit Windows® 7 or 10 systems. This easy-to-use graphical interface communicates with the camera to provide system control, image acquisition, and image review. Single images and image sequences may be captured and played back using this software. Application programming interfaces (APIs) and software development kits (SDKs) are also included for the development of custom applications by OEMs and developers. Also included is support for third-party software packages.

Please note if you have the previous legacy LabVIEW VIs, which have since been replaced by our .NET LabView Interface, you will need to install ThorCam Version 2.7 under the Archive tab.

Limited Linux support is provided for our Compact Scientific Cameras on the Programming Interfaces tab. Also, third-party Linux software that is compatible with our DCx Series Cameras is available here.

Note that this software is not compatible with the LC100(/M) CCD Linear Camera, which uses a separate software package available here.

The following packages are available:

  1. Software: Software package with graphical user interface, drivers, application programming interfaces, and software development kits.
  2. Programming Interfaces: Archives containing programming notes, functions, and demonstrations for using our Scientific Cameras and Compact USB cameras (DCx Series) with LabVIEW™ and other common languages.
  3. Archive: Our former-generation camera software packages: ThorCam versions 3.2.2, 3.2.0, 3.1.1, and 2.7.
  4. Drivers: Drivers for operating our Compact USB cameras (DCx Series) in a Linux environment.
