Hello, I have the following problem. I want to record the 1st second of real time video <-- that's my buffer. Now, I'd like to display in my GUI (1/10, which is actually 100 msec) of my buffer data. Repeat it 10 times. At the same time, I'd to record a new 2nd second to fill in the buffer. My question is, how can I simultaneously display data on in the GUI (pulling from the buffer), and recording new data (pushing to the buffer)?
I want to do this, so my Real Time Display would look smooth as new data coming in.

Have you considered using the computer vision toolbox? You can step() your video acquisition device to get a frame and in the same cycle step your video output to display a frame, potentially a frame you recorded earlier.

if labindex == 1
for Number_of_times = 1 : 15
for framenum = 1 : 10
frames(:,:,:,framenum) = get a frame
labSend(2, frames); %send it to the other proccess
else %labindex must be 2
for Number_of_times = 1 : 15
frames = labReceive(1);
... do some calculation on the frames
