To make these changes effective, sign out from the user account and then login again. In Windows 10, the sign out must be done explicitly whereas in older versions of Windows it will be proposed automatically by a popup window.
Correct recognition of the cameras
Figure 64: cameras recognition into “Device Manager”.
If the cameras are not listed, there are connection problems. Some possible causes are:
- not suitable USB subsystem;
- incorrect driver installation;
- USB cables not properly connected or faulty;
- faulty cameras.
Optimal camera settings
In order to guarantee an optimal power delivery to the cameras, open the “Power options” panel through the start menu and follow the configuration steps as shown in these figures (ref. fig. 65 to 69):
Figure 65: “Power options” search into the start menu.
Figure 66: change power options.
Figure 67: change advanced power settings.
Figure 68: USB selective suspend setting.
Figure 69: set the drop down menu to “Disabled”.
Change the parameter in the drop down menu to “Disabled” and confirm the operation by clicking on the “Apply” button.
Data transfer optimization
By double clicking on the icon, the program will start and a window, in which there is a list of the cameras connected to the system, will appear (ref. fig. 72).
Figure 72: IdsCameraManager.
Select “Additional functions” and check the two options “Disable (battery power)” and “Disable (mains power)” in the “CPU Idle states” box. Set the “Bulk transfer size” to 128kB (ref. fig. 73).
Restart the PC to make these changes effective.
Nvidia graphic cards
In the tab “Manage 3d settings” select “Add” to create a new personalized profile for IDEA the Software using the following settings (ref. fig. 75):
add the software indicating the path where “IDEA The Software” has been installed, usually
C:\Program Files\IDEA 1.0 (ref. fig. 76)
If IDEA has already been run previously, it may already be present in the program list (ref. fig. 77).
Otherwise, select “IDEA.exe” and confirm by clicking on “Open” (ref. fig. 78).
Set the preferred graphic processor to “High performance Nvidia processor” and confirm by clicking on “Apply” (ref. fig. 79).
In order to have a proof that the process has been executed correctly, launch IDEA. In the “Rendering” menu (Tools Options Rendering) check that the dedicated graphic cards is properly shown in the panel (ref. fig. 80).
