View Full Version : Camera/frame grabber info

11-06-2006, 05:35 AM

We are initiating a project that requires a camera with high-resolution (>1 Mpixel) and mid-range frame rates (~100 Hz). Eventually, the goal will be to process the images real-time which requires direct streaming to RAM. Therefore, we have been focusing on cameras with a CameraLink interface.

The Basler 501k meets these objectives, and now we are trying to decide on a compatible frame grabber. We are considering one from National Instruments (NI-1429), but we are trying to track down other users who have used high-speed cameras (Basler in particular) with National Instruments or other frame grabbers (e.g., EPIX). We would love to hear your experiences and whether any problems have been encountered.

Thanks a lot!
