Title: Data processing from RAM
Post by: gcp5017 on August 07, 2020, 10:04:24 AM
Hi folks,

I am interested in doing some processing prior to saving the video, or even just the processed data, onto the HD. My current routine is as follows, using python:

1) Set camera parameters
2) Collect data (1 second)
3) Store data on a laptop HD, transferred via Ethernet (~40 seconds  :'( )
4) Reduce data (few seconds) and store it.

The bottleneck is currently occurring due to the transfer. I am wondering if anyone has had any luck in pre-processing data prior to storage/save request? The camera itself already has python on it, so I believe it should be possible. I am looking to accessing the data directly from the cameras RAM, and potentially processing it on the camera prior to transfer.

Any suggestions or hints would be much appreciated.

Thank you!
