I got my Seek Thermal SDK!

Ben321,

The short answer is that I do not know. The temperature gradient issue was resolved on the MK1 dongle camera but as SEEK Thermal never revealed the cause of the issue or the software fix they used to combat it, we do not know whether later cameras have the same issue with FFC or not. It was my understanding that the current SDK was compatible with all SEEK Thermal cameras and cores that use a ‘USB to host’ link. That is to say it will not work with the SEEK Shot or SEEK Reveal series. There is no mention of FFC issues or incompatibilities.

Compatible yes. The SDK will work with any Seek USB camera. But the quality of the image (including any FFC issues) probably varies by which camera it is. Fortunately the older SDK 3.8 seems to implement a software fix for it, even in cameras that lack the proper FFC in the camera itself. Unfortunately, all newer SDKs don't seem to implement that software fix.

I posted about the issue on the Seek developer forums yesterday, including screenshots. Apparantly (at least for new members) all posts (or at least new threads) have to be approved by a moderator. As of now, the thread has not yet appeared in the forum. I wonder if they intentionally avoided allowing that thread, because it would publicize an embarrassing defect in their product?

If my thread does appear there, I will post here again to let you know.

Bill W:
is the FFC better / worse / different if you do not use the inbuilt shutter, but blank the lens manually instead ?

might give some clues

gabiz_ro:
In my case seekware-sdl can show image from camera but SeekSimpleViewer detect camera, show fps,frame,temperature min,spot,max ... seems OK but all I have is white screen after I press Start.
What I'm doing wrong?

Seems it was a problem on my notebook.
(tested on another notebook (also Intel graphic video) and one PC and works fine)
On my notebook with switchable graphics,with integrated Intel video white screen,switched to ATI card and image is OK now.
