IMS-5 Software and Documentation Downloads

Welcome to the software and documentation downloads area. Here you will find the software required to work with data from the iGUIDE IMS-5 Camera System and update its firmware to the latest version. If you are new to creating iGUIDEs start by downloading Stitch. Stitch will automatically update once installed and will notify you when your camera needs the newest firmware. Firmware update instructions are available or learn to use Stitch by experimenting with the sample data.

Stitch System requirements: MacOS 10.10+ or Windows 8+.
