ALBULA Software

Data Visualization and Image Manipulation

ALBULA is DECTRIS’ dedicated software for display and analysis of image data from PILATUS and EIGER detectors. It consists of the standalone ALBULA VIEWER and the Python programming interface ALBULA API.

ALBULA VIEWER is a fast and easy-to-use program that allows optimal visualization of PILATUS and EIGER data. Version 3.1 added data collection for use with EIGER detectors. Version 3.2 made possible direct reading of bit-shuffle LZ4-compressed data, which is now the default output of EIGER detectors.

The ALBULA API provides a Python interface for image display and for data processing and analysis. The API also enables easy integration of viewer functionality with beamline infrastructure or experimental setup.
