    Hi all,

    I have an analog camera (LaVision company;Flowmaster 3s model) that has Tx,Rx connected to company's Camera card to PCI port of PC. Now how do I capture the image in this setup .

    Do I have to create my own GUI and program for triggering internally, is it possible? Do I have to find drivers for Camera or for the card ? (I've very little knowledge on drivers and connection)


    Thanks!

    After a quick search on google it seems that the camera is supported on Windows, Mac and Linux.

    Did you try to use it on some of these three ?

    Yes in windows, but the software used was camware ,only able to preview not able to capture.
    Now do we have to deal with creating new guidelines using c/ embedded c etc.. using camera card drivers ?

    If you can preview it means you can also capture the frame (if not with camware but at least with a custom program), since indirectly you are already capturing frames.
    Don't know about windows, I use v4l2 API on Linux for such tasks, if not using an MCU.
