I have some questions about RGB8 with regards to MSEX 1.0 and MSEX 1.1. Thank you for your help!
1. How is RGB8 specified?
In another topic (http://www.citp-protocol.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=9
) it was said that plain RGB data (RGB24) is sent without the header information. Is that correct?
This works well with the MSEX->StFr package using Capture Polar, WYSIWIG, and the CITP Test Suite software.
But what about thumbnails (MSEX->ELTh, MSEX->EThn)?
I have tested Avolites' Titan Simulator and LSC Clarity and they don't accept RGB8 thumbnails. But when we switch to BMP data (BMP Header info + RGB24 data) they accept it and preview the thumbnails!
Which method is correct?
2. Is there a difference between Streaming and Thumbnails, and their compatible image formats?
3. Could the next version of the CITP protocol include more details and specifications about supported image formats so that everyone can comply with these standards?
4. This is more a suggestion: Does it make sense to add a BMP extension on top of RGB8, PNG and JPEG?
This would make it easier to work with.
