Imatest is integrated with the the MATLAB Image Acquisition toolbox and can acquire images from a multitude of analog frame grabbers. The following manufacturers provide frame grabbers that support a variety of standard and non-standard analog cameras including NTSC, PAL, RS-170, CCIR, and progressive scan. Please see vendor’s Web site for more details.
Frame grabbers will become part of the image processing pipeline, and therefore could either enhance or degrade the quality of the video signal. Not all frame grabbers will behave the same.
