Using Matrox® frame grabbers with MATLAB® and Simulink®, you can directly capture live video and images into your image processing and computer vision workflows.

The table below lists Matrox frame grabbers supported by Image Acquisition Toolbox™ on 64-bit Windows®. For detailed information about a frame grabber listed here, please visit the Matrox Imaging web site.

Image Acquisition Toolbox requires MIL or MIL-Lite to function with these frame grabbers. Supported versions of the Matrox Imaging Library include:

  • MIL or MIL-Lite 9.x
  • MIL or MIL-Lite 10.x

Note: There is no difference between MIL and MIL-Lite software inside of MATLAB. They both work with Matrox Imaging devices.

Please refer to the online help instructions to determine which version of MIL or MIL-Lite you own. To request support for a product not listed in this table, complete the Additional Hardware Interface Support form at the bottom of this page.
