Live View Simple

This demo illustrates use of the SimpleEngine to create an interactive OCT application. The SimpleEngine greatly reduces the number of design decisions and configuration options required to get started.


The SimpleEngine is intended primarily for entry-level users and does not expose the full capabilities of vortex.

Keyboard interactivity to switch and modify scans integration is also demonstrated, along with Python logging integration.


Python logging integration is not recommended for larger application as each log entry requires vortex’s background thread to acquire the GIL. This degrades real-time performance and may produce deadlocks.
