Image Acquisition Toolbox
The Image Acquisition app enables you to work with image and video acquisition devices and is well suited for interactive configuration of cameras. You can browse all hardware devices available on your computer, change device settings, select a region of interest (ROI), preview an acquisition, acquire images and video, and record data. A preview window helps verify and optimize your acquisition parameters by automatically reflecting any adjustments made to camera properties in the video stream. The Image Acquisition app serves as a starting point in the development of automated and custom image acquisition and processing systems.
Session logging lets you track actions performed in the tool with a history of command-line equivalent functions. In situations that require the same configuration and control process for multiple trials and experiments, the session log provides the ability to load settings to a common point and export the code to a programmatic interface in MATLAB for further automation.
You can log data to disk, memory, or both simultaneously with the Image Acquisition app or programmatically at the MATLAB command line. You can set a limit on memory usage to prevent overuse of resources in memory-intensive applications. Data acquired with the tool can also be exported directly to the Image Viewer app in Image Processing Toolbox for greater control over visualization. In addition, you can:
