eBUS SDK is the industry leading choice for image capture, display, and transmission in thousands of mission-critical applications. eBUS SDK is a comprehensive solution, providing developers with a feature-rich platform that simplifies application development with receive and transmit capabilities to streamline end-to-end data delivery between sensor devices and host applications.

To take full advantage of the eBUS SDK you must obtain a license. When a license is activated, an embossed watermark and restrictions for transmitting and receiving data are removed.

eBUS SDK (Developer Seat License)

Purchasing the eBUS SDK (Developer Seat License) entitles a single user full access to the latest version of eBUS and includes one year maintenance for access to eBUS updates. The Developer Seat License includes all available eBUS GigE Vision and USB Vision receive and transmit modules (GEV-Tx, GEV-Rx and U3V-Rx). The eBUS Player Toolkit is also included in the eBUS SDK download. (Please note, access to the eBUS SDK download package will be delivered via email within 1 business day following purchase)

Receive and Transmit Runtime Licenses

Receive and transmit runtime licenses are required when an application written using eBUS is deployed.
  • Rx License: eBUS-Rx will apply a watermark on received image streams by default. To remove the watermark, a runtime license is required on the receiving device. One license per device is required to remove a watermark from the video or image. There is no limit to the number of receive streams per device. Both GigE Vision (GEV-Rx) and USB3 Vision (U3V-Rx) runtime licenses are available as a download file or dongle shipped after purchase. Requires eBUS SDK 3.1 or higher. Note that if the image source is a Pleora based transmitter, eBUS-Rx will not apply a watermark and no runtime license is required.
  • Tx License: eBUS-Tx will transmit images for a total of 15 minutes and then stop transmitting by default. To enable permanent transmission, a GigE Vision transmitter (GEV-Tx) runtime license is required on the transmitting device. One license per camera or device is required. There is no limit to the number of transmit streams per device. Requires eBUS SDK 6.0 or higher.

For volume pricing on licenses, contact your local regional sales office.
