VideoDevice System Object Overview

The Image Acquisition Toolbox™ introduces the VideoDevice System object™, which allows single-frame image acquisition and code generation from MATLAB®.

You use the imaq.VideoDevice function to create the System object. It supports the same adaptors and hardware that the videoinput object supports; however, it has different functions and properties associated with it. For example, the System object uses the step function to acquire single frames.
