The constant drive for greater analysis resolution and higher system throughput results in the design of vision systems with multiple video inputs, each delivering hundreds, and even thousands, of Megabytes per second (MB/s) of pixel data. These video data rates challenge acquisition hardware and associated software to deliver reliable image capture on a PC-based system with an already heavy application workload. A study was conducted on the effectiveness of the Matrox Radient frame grabber to perform reliable high-bandwidth video capture and alleviate other computational resources.
