Hi,

I am wondering if it will be possible to simultaneously acquire video from multiple Web Cam USB (Genius Express).

Thanks.

Hello,

Yes, this is possible. Instantiate as much Grabber objects as needed and assign each connected camera to an own Grabber object.
Have a look to the bandwidth: If there is no more bandwidth available, you will get a "failed to connect the pins" message when you call startLive(),
Also there may will be a crash with the USB drivers, when using more than one cameras. This depends on the camera manufacturer.
