For optimal performance it is recommend to use Ethernet package sizes which are larger than 1500 bytes. Recommended package size is ~9000 bytes depending on the support of the used network controller. Your whole network infrastructure e.g. switches should support this Ethernet package size if not the GenTL will use the largest possible size.
To open a camera, double-click it. You can set the camera properties using the icons in the toolbar or work directly in the tree view.
How to integrate IDS industrial cameras with IDS peak in your own application is described in the further documentation of IDS peak which can be found in "C:\Program Files\IDS\ids_peak\sdk\api\doc".
