How to get support for your image acquisition hardware

Not all hardware is supported by Imatest or Imatest IT’s acquire image routine. In order to obtain support there are a number of possibilities:

1. Implement a standard image acquisition library

The quickest path to getting support for your device within the current version of Imatest is to implement a standard acquisition interface such as DirectShow or GenICam.

2. Integration Consulting

We can add support for your custom image acquisition SDK on a statement of work basis. Open an Image Acquisition Issue and we can estimate what it will take for us to integrate your device.

3. Get Support in MATLAB Image Acquisition Toolbox Adaptor

Many of our supported devices are implemented with the Matlab Image Acquisition Toolbox. If you create a MATLAB imaq adaptor a future version of Imatest will be able to load that adaptor from a plugin folder. Please contact us if you are interested in this option.  

You can also request hardware support from Mathworks, but it could be a long process for them to implement your device and release a new version of MATLAB, then for us to upgrade to it.
