ITALA G is a series of GigE vision industrial cameras designed and manufactured in Italy by Opto Engineering®. Combining a robust and reliable design with excellent value for money, these cameras are suitable for any imaging application.

The ITALA G series integrates high quality Sony Pregius and Pregius S CMOS sensors ranging from the most commonly used II generation with 3.45 µm pixels to the most recent IV generation with 2.74 µm pixels.

The ITALA G cameras also integrate 5 MP and 12 MP Sony Polarsens™ sensors. This series of polarization image sensors feature a multi-directional polarizer that, in addition to brightness and color information, can capture polarization information.

Third party software compatibility


The ITALA SDK (Software Development Kit) is a robust and easy-to-use API designed from scratch to support all ITALA® cameras. The compliance to the GenICam standard grants easy and precise configuration and control of cameras thanks to GenTL. Moreover, the ITALA SDK features up-to-date SFNC nomenclature and supports event interface to create deterministic camera operation and chunk data to provide meta-data on the acquisition

Key features

  • Robust, easy-to-use C++, C and C# API
  • Extensive documentation with practical code examples showing common and advanced use cases
  • Standardized camera control via familiar GenApi implementation
  • Up-to-date SFNC feature names
  • Event interface and chunk data support
  • Utilities for camera network configuration and firmware updates
  • NDIS filter driver improves streaming stability and CPU usage
  • Fully featured GUI viewer for camera control, streaming and monitoring
  • Camera settings download from device to file and vice versa
  • Support for Windows and Linux OS

Please find more information on the extensive functions of the ITALA API in the ITALA SDK documentation available in the installation directory.


ITALA View is a GUI tool which allows the evaluation, configuration and troubleshooting of ITALA® cameras. With a comprehensive set of utilities and wizards, Itala View speeds up the evaluation and deployment of a vision system built around ITALA cameras.

With reference to the image below, the main window of Itala View can be divided in different functional areas:

  1. Menu bar, to access the settings, tools and wizards of the application
  2. Device discovery, with the NICs of your computer and the cameras connected to them
  3. Device information and control
  4. Video streaming
  5. Image data analysis and logging
  6. GenICam feature tree

From the Tools menu you can access two important utilities:

  • IP configurator, to efficiently address network configuration issues of Itala cameras, including but not restricted to:
    1. Camera and NIC set with persistent IPs but different subnets
    2. Camera and NIC set with persistent IPs but different subnet masks
    3. Camera set in DHCP mode and NIC set with a persistent IP
    4. Camera set with a persistent IP and NIC set in DHCP mode
