TAG Heuer by Lynx will operate with a number of software plug-ins
LIST OF AVAILABLE PLUG-INS
- Automatic Capture Mode (ACM) Plug-in The Automatic Capture Mode (ACM) Plug-in for TAG Heuer by Lynx enables the software to detect and record all finish line activity automatically so you no longer need to press and hold a capture button to record photo-finish images. ACM also allows your camera to be used as a “virtual photo-eye” that will instantly broadcast running-times, splits, and finish times to any compatible displays at your venue. See Automatic Capture Mode (ACM) Plug-in for details.
- LapTime (LT) Plug-in The LapTime (LT) Plug-in enables the TAG Heuer by Lynx software to generate competitor lap times from a TAG Heuer by Lynx image or compatible 3rd-party device like a chronometer or chip timing system. LapTime events can be recorded for each competitor and integrated with TAG Heuer by Lynx fully automatic timing results via the TAG Heuer by Lynx software. See LapTime (LT) Plug-in for details.
- Multiple-Split Interface (MSI) Plug-in The Multiple-Split Interface (MSI) Plug-in allows TAG Heuer by Lynx operators to capture multiple finish lines within a single race using the TAG Heuer by Lynx software. Adding the MSI to TAG Heuer by Lynx means the software can be configured to capture multiple images with the same camera (i.e.; the camera records a new image every lap); or when multiple cameras are present, the software can capture images from several different cameras located throughout the race (i.e.; capture images from cameras located every 1/4 mile of a thoroughbred track). See Multiple-Split Interface (MSI) Plug-in for details.
- Network ComPort (NCP) Plug-inThe Network ComPort (NCP) Plug-in allows you to use a single TAG Heuer by Lynx computer to communicate with multiple serial or network devices directly through TCP sockets instead of serial ports. With the help of SeriaLynx, you can put serial devices such as scoreboards, and LapTime devices on a wired or wireless Ethernet network and then use the plug-in to enable TAG Heuer by Lynx to communicate with those devices. See Network ComPort (NCP) Plug-in for details.
- Remote Control (RC) Plug-in The Remote Control (RC) Plug-in for TAG Heuer by Lynx allows users to remotely control the TAG Heuer by Lynx software interface by sending commands through a serial port or TCP socket connection. This plug-in allows the TAG Heuer by Lynx software to be used as a slave to—or in conjunction with—another software program. See Remote Control (RC) Plug-in for details.
- Time Trial (TT) Plug-in The Time Trial (TT) Plug-in enables the TAG Heuer by Lynx software to operate in Time Trial Mode where multiple, varying start times can be assigned to competitors across a single event. See Time Trial (TT) Plug-in for details.
- External Sync (ES) Plug-in The External Sync (ES) Plug-in for TAG Heuer by Lynx allows you to attach an external timer to a TAG Heuer by Lynx camera through the PHOTOEYE A input. This allows you to synchronize the camera time of day to a GPS satellite so cameras that cannot be attached to the network will have the same TOD at different locations for precise accuracy. With this plug-in you can sync cameras to an external timer, create and save a new event; then turn off the cameras, set them up elsewhere and re-sync them to the same external timer. Once the cameras are re-synchronized, you can then capture into the previously saved event while ensuring the same time-of-day and accuracy. See External Sync (ES) Plug-in for details.
