2D color image inconsistency after updating Zivid SDK

Note

This problem only occurs with Zivid Two after updating to SDK 2.8.

Problem

Zivid Two output different color images after updating Zivid SDK using the same color balance settings.

Possible cause

The color balance calculation for Zivid Two was updated in SDK 2.8. This means that the color values for a given pixel may differ after updating the SDK. There is only an inconsistency if the Color Balance values are larger than 1. The difference is more pronounced for higher gain values. The images below illustrate the inconsistency between SDK 2.7 and SDK 2.8.
