Image Acquisition Toolbox™ supports UVC compliant webcams using QuickTime. QuickTime 7.6.6 is required on MAC OS X 10.5 (Leopard), and QuickTime 10 (or higher) is required on MAC OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). See the Troubleshooting section of the Image Acquisition Toolbox documentation for additional information.
To test your video capture device for compatibility with the toolbox, verify your hardware is functioning properly by running the webcam application that came with MAC OS X (for example, the PhotoBooth or iMovie application). If you can start, run, and close the utility without encountering any errors, the device may work with Image Acquisition Toolbox as long as the camera complies with QuickTime.
Many manufacturers provide cameras that are compatible with QuickTime. More detailed information is available for manufacturers linked below.
Please see the Troubleshooting section of the Image Acquisition Toolbox documentation for additional information.
