LImA : Library for Image Acquisition
8
====================================
9
LImA (stands for **L** ibrary for **Im** age **A** cquisition) is a project for the unified control of 2D detectors. It is used in production in `ESRF Beamlines <https://www.esrf.eu/about/synchrotron-science/beamline>`_ and in other places.
10

11
The architecture of the library aims at clearly separating hardware specific code from common software configuration and features, like setting standard acquisition parameters (exposure time, external trigger), file saving and image processing.
12

13
LImA is a C++ library but the library also comes with a Python_ binding. A PyTango_ device server for remote control is provided as well.

15
We provide Conda binary package for Windows and Linux for some cameras. Check out our `Conda channel <https://anaconda.org/esrf-bcu>`_.
