NL::FastPng

NL::FastPng is a C-based extension that uses libpng in a simplified configuration for faster performance on grayscale images, at the expense of slightly larger file sizes.

This code was used by the Nitrogen Logic Depth Camera Controller to generate PNG images from realtime depth data on limited hardware.
