View Full Version : Maximum connected framegrabbers

July 19, 2006, 20:43:11
If I have a setup by which I can attach 16 framegrabbers, will the SDK be able to read from all of them? If so, will it be able to support all of them reading full frames at 30 frames per second?

Hello Charles,

Yes, IC Imaging Control can handle as many grabber objects as wanted. ... but please calculate the amount of data you will receive and compare it to the transfer rate of your PCI Bus. Also check, whether you have enough slots for all the needed FireWire boards on your PC. You can not connect all 16 video capture devices to on FireWire board if you want to receive all live streams simultaneaously.
If you want to receive the live streams from each device in sequence, then I can not see any problem. This would work fine.
