FireWire: What is DCAM?

In our last newsletter, we took a look at the topic of FireWire and mentioned the so-called DCAM protocol. Several newsletter subscribers asked us to provide a more detailed discussion on this protocol. Indeed, this protocol plays a very important role as only cameras that adhere to this protocol can be classified as using the international FireWire standard.

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.
