how to give a triggers to 4 different cameras

I am using matlab to obtain images from 4 JAI CCD cameras(1 color, 2 mono, 1 uv).
Matlab code sets exposure time to cameras with pulse generation and grab images by external trigger.
The problem is when I take a picture, the trigger time is quiet different.
For example, the trigger times are 1)17:51:24.41 2)17:51:26:43 3)17:51:26.47 4) 17:51:28.40
Time gaps are 1-2) 2.03 sec, 2-3)0.04sec, 3-4) 1.53sec, 1-4) 3.59sec.
And camera triggering order is different. It is once 1)camera #1, 2)camera #3, 3)camera #4 and 4) camera #2
and then 1)camera #4, 2)camera #1, 3) camera #2 and 4) camera #4.
Please tell me how to syncronize the trigger time for 4 cameras and control triggering order. Thank you for an advice in advance.
Here is the matlab code I use:
clc; clear all; close all;
prompt = {'Exposure_color (ms):','Exposure_UV (ms):'...
,'Exposure_BW1 (ms):','Exposure_BW2 (ms):'};
title = 'Exposure time';
dims = [1 35];
definput = {'25','12','5','5'};
answer = inputdlg(prompt,title,dims,definput);
v_bw1 = videoinput('gige',3,'Mono8'); %ch.1~4
v_uv = videoinput('gige',4,'Mono8');
v_color = videoinput('gige',1,'BayerRG8');
v_bw2 = videoinput('gige',2,'Mono8');
s1 = v_bw1.Source;
s2 = v_uv.Source;
s3 = v_color.Source;
v_color.ReturnedColorspace = 'grayscale';
s4 = v_bw2.Source;
