Adapter to Connect BitFlow Frame Grabbers with Mathworks Image Acquisition Toolbox™ Software

POSTED 08/22/2011

URN, MA --  BitFlow, a world leader in video frame grabber technologies for machine vision applications, has unveiled a new adapter that seamlessly connects its analog, Camera Link, LVDS and RS-422 frame grabbers with Image Acquisition Toolbox™ software from MathWorks.
"We are excited about the BitFlow adaptor to Image Acquisition Toolbox because our users will now be able to acquire images and video from BitFlow's industry leading frame grabbers directly into MATLAB and Simulink," said Bruce Tannenbaum, MathWorks marketing manager for image and video processing applications.
The adaptor enables users to acquire images and video from BitFlow frame grabbers directly into MathWork's MATLAB® and Simulink® software to create customized imaging solutions for data visualization, algorithm development, image analysis, and GUI creation.
The BitFlow adaptor, available free at, is a dynamic link library (DLL) that implements the connection between the Image Acquisition Toolbox framework and BitFlow's device drivers to deliver features such as data logging and triggering. The adapter is supported on 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft® Windows® environments. Compatible BitFlow frame grabber models are the Alta-AN family (for analog cameras), the Neon-CL family (for CL Base cameras), the Karbon-CL family (for CL Base/Med/Full cameras), the Road Runner series (for RS422/LVDS), and for the newly released Karbon-CXP series (for CoaXPress cameras).
