CigiClient Plugin

Common Image Generator Interface (CIGI) protocol is a standard way for a host device to communicate with an image generator (IG). It is widely used in the simulation industry.

The Unigine implementation of CIGI supports its common functionality (versions 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, and 3.3).

The CigiClient plugin enables to use CIGI protocol in the Unigine engine. It listens the CIGI Host, which sends CIGI sentences.

Notice
A respond to the received sentences should be implemented in the script.

This plugin can work in both master and slave modes. The master IG can respond to the CIGI Host by creating a packet and sending it to the host. The slave IGs only listen sentences from the host.

In order to use CIGI, you need to activate the CigiClient plugin and take a look at data/samples/plugins/cigi_client_00 sample.

To run the plugin sample from the Unigine SDK Browser, press the CigiClient plugin button on the Plugin Samples tab.
