Surface Pro laptop’s inbuilt camera uses a color format which is currenlty not supported with the "webcam" command. Alternatively, if you do have Image Acquisition Toolbox installed, then you can install the “Image Acquisition Toolbox Support Package for OS Generic Video Interface” and then use the following command to create a camera object:
>> v = videoinput(‘winvideo’,1)

Hi Nguyen, you can refer to this documentation - Windows Video Hardware. It will help you figure out why you are having trouble using the Image Acquisition Toolbox™ software with a supported Windows® video acquisition device.
