Opens the specified device with IC Imaging Control and retrieves the video norms, video formats, input channels and frame rates provided by the device.
Please note: In contrast to IC_OpenDevice, this VI will always open the same device, because the device is unambiguously specified by its serial number, no matter how many devices of the same type are installed on the system.
|Color determines the format of the image buffers. The format can either be RGB32 or Y8 (monochrome).|
|ICImagingControl In is the reference to an instance of IC Imaging Control, which is used to open the video device.|
|DeviceID specifies the device to be opened. The cluster contains 2 strings. The first is the model name and the second is the serial number of the device to be opened.|
|If Live is true, the live mode is set after the device was successfully opened.|
|Error In describes error conditions that occurred before this VI or function was executed. The default is no error. If an error occurred before this VI or function was executed, the VI or function passes the Error In value to Error Out.|
|ICImagingControl Out returns the reference that was passed to ICImagingControl In.|
|VideoNorms returns an array containing the names of the video norms supported by the opened device. The array is empty, if the device does not support video norms.|
|VideoFormats returns an array containing the names of video formats supported by the opened device.|
|ImputChannels returns an array containing the names of the input channels supported by the opened device. The array is empty, if the device does not support input channels.|
|FrameRates returns an array, describing the supported frame rates of the opened device. The array is empty, if the device does not support frame rates.|
|Error Out contains error information. If Error In indicates that an error occurred before this VI or function was executed, Error Out contains the error information that was passed to Error In. Otherwise, it describes the error status that this VI or function generates.|
