There are updated software versions available for the HOLOEYE SLM Pattern Generator, the SLM Slideshow Player and the SLM Display SDK. Updates are available trough our download website at https://customers.holoeye.com/downloads/. Please register if you do not yet have an account on our download website.

One of the main new features is the advanced device detection. On start-up a device detection dialog pops up which not only checks if a prober HOLOEYE SLM device is connected but also if all system settings are correct. You can directly solve issues with graphics card or systems settings using the device detection “configuration” dialog. Besides some minor bug fixes we made the following changes:
