This is where you find everything you need to know about interfacing cameras to Matrox Imaging hardware.
Matrox Imaging offers detailed Camera Interface Application Notes for cameras that are already interfaced to our hardware. The application notes explain which camera modes are supported, how they are supported and the required cabling. They include a link to the DCF (digitizer configuration format) file(s) necessary to program the hardware. DCF files are also embedded within the application notes. Please note that there are no applications notes for CoaXPress, IEEE 1394 IIDC and GigE Vision® cameras because these make use of ready-to-go standards.

If you require additional assistance in determining if your video source is compatible with Matrox Imaging hardware, email or fax the Video Specification Form to +1 (514) 822-6273. One of our Applications Specialists will then contact you to confirm receipt of your request and work with you to answer your interfacing questions. Please note that this form is not required for CoaXPress, IEEE 1394 IIDC and GigE Vision® devices because these make use of ready-to-go standards.
