Image Acquisition Toolbox

Acquire images and video from industry-standard hardware

Image Acquisition Toolbox™ enables you to acquire images and video from cameras and frame grabbers directly into MATLAB® and Simulink®. You can detect hardware automatically, and configure hardware properties. Advanced workflows let you trigger acquisition while processing in-the-loop, perform background acquisition, and synchronize sampling across several multimodal devices. With support for multiple hardware vendors and industry standards, you can use imaging devices, ranging from inexpensive Web cameras to high-end scientific and industrial devices that meet low-light, high-speed, and other challenging requirements.
