Image Acquisition Toolbox

Performing Image Acquisition in Simulink

Simulink is a block-diagram based environment commonly used for video system design and multidomain simulations. Image Acquisition Toolbox provides a Simulink block that enables you to capture images and video data directly from any device supported by the toolbox for use in imaging system designs. Combined with Computer Vision System Toolbox, the toolbox lets you perform simulation and verification of image or video processing system designs with live image or video data.

Code Generation

Image Acquisition Toolbox lets you generate a C code interface to a deployable library for the Simulink block. This enables you to design a video system and integrate acquisition functionality into your own applications without having to perform low-level coding with hardware drivers. Code generation also enables Simulink Rapid Accelerator modes, which speed up simulations by providing higher performance and frame rates for image and video processing simulations.
