The following is an overview of the Specializations tab of Capture OEM.
Knee Points (Supported by Some Cameras)
Extended shutter allows for a multiple slope integration to extend the dynamic range of the camera. The multiple slope operation is controlled using knee points, where each knee point occurs at a separate time during the overall integration. Each knee point represents a separate reset point for the image where pixels brighter than a certain value are reset to that value.
Click the check box to enable the knee point, and drag the slider to the desired value, or enter the value in the text field.
If the camera does not support Knee Points, a "This camera does not support Extended Shutter" message will be shown below the slider bars.

Polarization (Polar Cameras Only)
For polar cameras, pixel format can be selected from the Pixel Format drop down menu. The following pixel formats are supported:
STOKES4_12: Image data is formatted to show the polar images Stokes Values, S0, S1 and S2. The image displayed in the preview window will be the S0 channel.
POLAR4_12: Image data is formatted to show the 0°, 45°, 90° and 135° channels. The image displayed in the preview window is the sum of the 0° and 90° degree values.
POLAR_RAW4_12: Image data represents each of the 0°, 45°, 90° and 135° polar channels. By default, the image displayed in the preview window is the ‘raw’ pixel values of the 45° polar channel.
HSV4_12: Image data is formatted to show the Intensity, Angle of Polarization and Degree of polarization. The image displayed in the preview window can take one of the three forms below, selectable from the "Interpretation" drop down box:
COLOR - shows an image where the images HUE represent the angle of polarization, and the saturation is represented by the degree of polarization.
ANGLE - shows an image where the shade of the pixel represents the angle of polarization.
DEGREE - shows an image where the shade of the pixel represents degree of polarization.
To increase or decrease the relative strength of each individual polar channel on the camera (0°, 45°, 90° and 135°), adjust the polarization sliders or click the "Min All" and "Max All" buttons.
Precision Time Protocol (PL-X Cameras Only)
Click the "On" checkbox to enable PTP. Click the "Slave Only" checkbox to enable (or disable) slave only mode.
The current state of the camera as well as the camera's self reported time are displayed in the "State" and "Camera Time" areas.
