MathWorks provides a support package that installs all required third party software. If you are unable to use the Point Grey support package, some of these cameras also support common vision standards. Check your specific camera model for hardware compatibility with your platform.
Point Grey support uses the Point Grey Fly Capture SDK, enabling all supported functionality for Point Grey cameras. However, this is only supported on Microsoft Windows. To work on other platforms, use the industry standard support for your camera model. If your camera or frame grabber is supported by both the industry standard and the manufacturer, it is recommended that you use the manufacturer support.
The following table shows which support packages can be used with each Point Grey camera based on the platform and industry standard. Note that you can also use the Point Grey hardware support package on Windows for all industry standards.
|Windows||Mac OS X||Linux|
|DCAM||DCAM Support Package||DCAM Support Package|
|GigE Vision||GigE Vision Support Package||GigE Vision Support Package|
See the hardware support package system requirements table for current and prior version, release, and platform availability.
