Welcome to Metavision SDK

Discover Metavision SDK version 4.6.2, an all-in-one package that provides you with a range of essential tools, from a visualization application to a comprehensive API.

Getting started is easy - simply follow our installation guides. And to easily explore our technology and products, indulge yourself in a marathon of our Training Videos.

Once installed, launch Metavision Studio, which allows you to view data from an event-based camera in real-time. If you don’t yet own an event-based device, you can still experience the power of Metavision SDK by using one of our sample recordings. To fully understand the unique nature of event-based vision, we highly recommend reading our page on event-based concepts, which provides an in-depth understanding of our way of managing events.

Examine the wide diversity of use cases and applications ranging from algorithm-based ones (Optical Flow, Object Tracking etc.) to Machine Learning ones, that you may consider focusing on, alongside the diverse set of tools available.

You are now ready to start coding! Check our getting started, programming guides, and code samples and build your own solution using our C++ API or Python API.

With these tools at your disposal, you can unlock the full potential of Metavision SDK and Metavision sensors and begin creating event-based vision applications that are limited only by your imagination.


This public documentation covers our whole Metavision SDK offer and contains some data about our sensors and cameras. For more hardware documentation, application notes and support tools, check our Knowledge Center. If you are a Prophesee customer, request your account.
