This file exchange submission enables FLIR Spinnaker supported cameras to work with Image Acquisition Toolbox™. For MATLAB R2021a and later, the Spinnaker adaptor is compatible with Spinnaker SDK Version 2.4 only. Use Spinnaker SDK Version 1.15 for MATLAB R2018b to R2020b.
Follow these instructions to install the adaptor:
Step 1: Install the Spinnaker SDK.
a) Download and run the EXE file.
