simple_take.c File Reference

Detailed Description

An example program to show usage of EDT PCI DV library to acquire and optionally save single or multiple images from devices connected to EDT high speed digital imaging interface such as the PCI DV C-Link or PCI DV FOX / RCX.

Provided as a starting point example for adding digital image acquisition to a user application. Includes optimization strategies that take advantage of the EDT ring buffer library subroutines for pipelining image acquisition and subsequent processing. This allows you to achieve higher performance than would normally be possible through a basic acquire/process scheme.

The name is somewhat misleading -- because of the parallel aspect, it really isn't the simplest way to do image acquisition. For a stone-simple example, see simplest_take.c.

For more more complex operations, including error detection, diagnostics, changing camera exposure times, and tuning the acquisition in various ways, refer to the take.c utility. For serial, see serial_cmd.c.

For a sample Windows GUI application code, see wintake.
