View Full Version : DMK 21F04 How many cams on Daisy Chain?

May 22, 2014, 11:47:18
Hello everybody,

how many Cams can we use in Daisy Chain on one firewire port? If we use more than 3, the Videocapture is empty. We are using Visual Studio and OpenCV.

May somebody can help us.

Hello Nils,

sorry for the delay of the answer. If the camera are powered, then up to 64 cameras could be connected. However, the FireWire bus has a limited bandwidth, so you must reduce the frame rate, until the camera can be started.

Did you run on the "last" camera in the chain?
