Matrox Acquisition – matroxcam Object vs videoinput Object
The Image Acquisition Toolbox™ includes a separate interface for use with Matrox® frame grabbers. This interface is designed for Matrox hardware and supports more Matrox-specific functionality.
You can continue to use the Matrox adaptor (
videoinput object, or you can use the
which takes advantage of Matrox features.
The Matrox support, using either object, requires that
you download and install the necessary files via MATLAB® Add-Ons.
The Matrox Hardware support package installs the files for both the
videoinput object and the

More robust support for a wider configuration of supported devices. Supports more device configurations than the
Added support for the MIL 10.
Supports newer devices.
Uses advanced toolbox features such as buffering and callbacks
Supported in Image Acquisition Explorer, the VideoDevice System Object, and Simulink®
If you do not need to use any advanced toolbox features and you do not need to use the
Image Acquisition Explorer, the VideoDevice System Object, or the Simulink block, use the
matroxcam object to take advantage of the
advanced Matrox feature support it offers.
Note that the
that are available with the
matroxcam object starting in release R2015a
work with MIL or MIL-Lite 10.x only. Use of the
matrox adaptor with the
videoinput object can use either MIL 9 or 10.
