Real-Time ASCII Art Rendering Library Released

The PixLab engineering team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Real-Time ASCII Art C/C++ Rendering Library.

ASCII Art is a single file C/C++ library that let you transform an input image or video frame into printable ASCII characters at real-time using a single decision tree. Real-time performance is achieved by using pixel intensity comparison inside internal nodes of the tree.
