Free Download: Image Acquisition SDK

The following modern video sources comply directly with the APIs of Windows 2000 and Windows XP:

  • USB cameras
  • FireWire cameras
  • DV camcorders / recorders
  • Video-to-FireWire converters
  • Frame grabbers

Instead of having to employ a costly software engineer to develop a proprietary API (the notorious 'frame grabber DLL problem') for your application, you can simply use the built in APIs of Windows 2000 and Windows XP in conjunction with our new imaging SDK.

IC Imaging Control is an Image Acquisition SDK that works with any of the above video sources.

As an ActiveX and C++ Class Library, IC Imaging Control allows you to program image acquisition applications with only a few lines of code.

Please take a look at following example to see the simplicity of this kind of image acquisition.

Once you have finished your application using this method of programming, you can be sure that it will be compatible to any of the above-mentioned video sources.

As always, should you wish to speak to us about this or any other topic related to machine vision, please call us or email us.
