The Hardware for Video Capture Purposes in PC-Based Vision Systems
The hardware for video capture purposes in PC-based vision systems are considered in this paper. Discussed devices working with television video signal (framegrabber) and the digital devices for serial bus USB and IEEE-1394. The software components are necessary for the interface with devices from the vision systems software. The various software development kit (SDK) types are considered In this paper. Now there are accessible software, which can be used during vision systems software development. There are libraries of image processing algorithms, interactive image processing applications. In some libraries of image processing algorithms there are groups of the subroutines for the framegrabber control. In the given paper a number of the given category software is described and the opportunities of their application for real time vision systems software development are discussed.
