Image Acquisition Toolbox
Together, MATLAB, Image Acquisition Toolbox, and Image Processing Toolbox™ (and, optionally, Computer Vision System Toolbox™) provide a complete environment for developing customized imaging solutions. You can acquire images and video, visualize data, develop processing algorithms and analysis techniques, and create Ui's and apps. The image acquisition engine enables you to acquire frames as fast as your camera and PC can support for high speed imaging. In addition, you can use Image Acquisition Toolbox with Simulink and Computer Vision System Toolbox to model and simulate real-time embedded imaging systems.
Image Acquisition Toolbox simplifies the acquisition process by providing a consistent interface across operating systems, hardware devices, and vendors. The toolbox provides multiple ways to access hardware devices from MATLAB and Simulink: the Image Acquisition Tool, a programmatic interface in MATLAB, and a block for Simulink. Each workflow provides access to camera properties and controls while enabling you to solve different types of problems with the strengths of each environment.
