Installation of Studio on Windows

This section describes how to install Metavision Studio on Windows 10 64-bit.


Metavision Studio is an application with a Graphical User Interface allowing to visualize and record data streamed by Prophesee-compatible event-based vision systems. It is built using Metavision SDK. It comes as pre-built Windows installer including the Prophesee Camera Plugins, so you can use it without any extra installation. If you want to deploy our full SDK (Python and C++ API and associated code samples), follow the specific guide: Installation of SDK. (note that the full SDK installation also contains Metavision Studio application). To install our open source project OpenEB follow the specific guide: Installation of OpenEB.


Please note the base system requirements for using Metavision:

  • Operating system: Windows 10 64-bit

  • Architecture: amd64 (a.k.a. x64)

  • Graphic card: must support OpenGL 3.0 minimum

  • CPU: must support AVX2

For Linux, check the page Studio installation on Linux.


Upgrading Metavision

First of all, read carefully the Release Notes as some changes may impact your usage of our SDK (e.g. API updates) and cameras (e.g. firmware update might be necessary).

Then, if you have previously installed any Prophesee’s software, you will need to uninstall it first:

  1. Make sure that no Prophesee or Metavision software is running

  2. Open the Start menu

  3. Click Settings

  4. Search for Apps & features via the search

  5. In the list of installed programs, find any Prophesee or Metavision software and click the Uninstall button

  6. Check that there is no Prophesee folder left in your Program Files folder (if still present, delete it)


Removing the old version of Metavision SDK is mandatory even for patch upgrade (e.g. from 2.2.0 to 2.2.1)


If not yet done, sign-up for Metavision software, then:

  • Follow the link to download the Metavision Studio Windows installer

  • Among the list of SDK installers (Metavision_Studio_xyz_Setup.exe), download the one with highest version number

  • You can safely ignore other files (e.g. Metavision_SDK_xyz_Setup.exe) as Studio installer contains everything you need

  • Run the Studio installer


For a given minor release of Metavision Intelligence (e.g. 2.3), all the patch versions (e.g. 2.3.0 and 2.3.1) are available in the file repository link your sign-up gave you access to.

Get started!
