Customers who wish to use MATLAB with Point Grey cameras have the following two options for acquiring images from the camera:
Image Acquisition Toolbox
The Image Acquisition Toolbox from MATLAB is a full image acquisition software library and includes the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) camera driver. Most Point Grey cameras (except Digiclops, Firefly and Firefly 2) are compatible with the CMU driver.
Wrap Point Grey Software Libraries
The second option that some customers have had success with involves developing MATLAB wrappers for Point Grey DLLs (e.g. pgrflycapture.dll) and libraries that allow them to interface with Point Grey cameras. In this case, the cameras are using Point Grey camera drivers. As a starting point for customers interested in doing this, the following experimental sample code was developed to demonstrate how to use MATLAB to access FlyCapture DLLs while using the FlyCapture camera drivers.
