Acquisition Using Matrox Hardware

Acquire images from Matrox® frame grabbers

Image Acquisition Toolbox™ includes a separate interface for use with Matrox frame grabbers. You can continue to use the Matrox adaptor (matrox) with the videoinput object, or you can use the matroxcam object, which takes advantage of Matrox features. This section provides information about the new matroxcam object.

For more information about choosing the interface, see Matrox Acquisition – matroxcam Object vs videoinput Object.

Note: The functionality for all supported hardware is now available via the Support Package Installer. Starting with R2014a, each adaptor is available separately through the Support Package Installer, and you must install the appropriate support packages to use the toolbox with your hardware. For more information, see Image Acquisition Support Packages for Hardware Adaptors.
