MATLAB: Are ‘Vrmagic’ USB cameras supported with Image Acquisition Toolbox

Image Acquisition Toolbox

Are 'Vrmagic' USB cameras supported with Image Acquisition Toolbox?

Best Answer

  • The vendor provides SDKs for Windows and Linux:
    You might be able to:
    - use MATLAB external interfaces to interface with this SDK (does not require Image Acquisition Toolbox), or
    - create a custom adaptor to interface with the vendor's SDK (using the adaptor kit for Image Acquisition Toolbox)
    On Windows only, the camera might additionally work with the 'winvideo' adapter of the Image Acquisition Toolbox. Please confirm with the manufacturer if they provide DirectShow drivers for use with generic imaging applications in Windows, or whether it works only with their SDK.
