Frame markers for different video sizes. The output of the driver is currently only RGB If you have a generic USB trouble, such as host controller errors, then visit Linux-USB Web site and there you will find addresses of linux-usb-users mailing list. USB bandwidth is limited to 12 Mbps; however cameras generate huge amounts of data. If you want to email me and report a problem please attach following information to your first email. Anyway, I hope this helps. Command set specifications Some people asked for specs but manufacturer failed to respond.

Experiments show that this camera sends compressed data.

IBM C-it USB Camera Driver for Linux

I have the camera now – but not the time to work on it: Earlier versions of this ibm pc camera ksx-x9903 camera sent uncompressed data. The driver does not report true colors with Model 3 cameras. The results are much improved, even with a simple interpolation.

On startup one can see part of the complete image, and then it gets replaced with that “noise”.

People who do all report that the camera simply does not work, streams nothing and the screen is dark. Xirlink’s own Web site ibm pc camera ksx-x9903 not updated in many months, and they don’t even offer latest Windows drivers there. It consists of two PCBs – sensor board and the processor board. I do not know how to decode this data, and as such I can’t do anything with it. This hack averages neighboring pels on the current and previous lines to linearly interpolate the unknown colors.

Buy instead another camera, that is based on a ibm pc camera ksx-x9903 that is documented and cakera in Linux.

Xirlink itself sold cameras under brand name “C-It Camera TM ibm pc camera ksx-x9903, but I guess now they shifted from manufacturing and sales to pure design and licensing. There may be ibbm than one factory code for each supported model of the camera because these codes reflect not only firmware changes but also insignificant from software point of view changes in hardware, plastic, packaging etc.

Therefore I only separated one packet that is known to adjust gain in color channels and affect hue, in some way.

One packet usually carries out one high-level adjustment. Looks like each packet has variable format and variable length, and the ibm pc camera ksx-x9903 of packets camer this camera is very fluid, defying analysis. There is a patch floating around that fixes the problem, and there is an effort underway to merge it into the kernel tree.


The driver contains appropriate decoders for known encodings. USB bandwidth is limited to 12 Mbps; however cameras generate huge amounts of data. A small patch to Voxilla fixed that. I do not actively work on this issue at this time because it’s tough to play ibm pc camera ksx-x9903 datastream decoders without having the camera. However this is still very experimental code. I do not work at this time on reverse-engineering of that compression, and most likely I will not have time to do that in nearest future.

I don’t even have all models of cameras! It ibm pc camera ksx-x9903 my model 2 run better. Linux driver does not scale the image up – this, if needed, can always be done in userspace. Camera uses several of such transfers grouped together in packets.

Historically there was no easy way to convey the button press event to the application The polling command is a waste of bandwidth. ViCE TM compression This is some kind of video compression that allows to improve frame rate or image size.

Generally, a V4L driver can provide output in any number ibm pc camera ksx-x9903 formats. However at such small image sizes the compression is not that necessary.

Camera assembly, top Camera assembly, bottom Sensor camerw with lens Sensor chip: Known cameras There are many versions of C-It cameras. Previously you had to build the driver from CVS, but now ksx-d9903 is not needed or even recommended. Frame ibm pc camera ksx-x9903 Camera sends continuous stream of frames. Colorspace conversion Here is some useful information about colorspaces and encoding methods: Three fields are defined in those control requests, besides the data buffer which is not used:
