I recently had a project dropped into my lap and have had a tough time finding information about it on the web. Here is a quick outline of my current issue. I am trying to take in an analog video signal (640x480) and process the stream in LabVIEW/IMAQ/IMAQdx (end goal would be to have uncompressed video being processed). I need to be able to have an uncompressed image to do calculations on. I am currently trying to achieve this by using an axis video server and converting the analog signal into a digital signal and finding the camera via an IP address (having networked video was requested as well... Not a must though). My understanding is that LabVIEW takes in the video stream as mjpeg (please correct me if I am wrong) and even at the lowest compression setting mjpeg streams are still compressed pretty heavily and use a lossy compression algorithm (again correct me if I am wrong) which will make doing any reliable image processing for me very difficult. So my question is... Is there a better way to do this using any other hardware? We will be putting the software on a pc like this, so I am unable to use pci/pci-e boards/cards but something through USB or Ethernet ports is fair game. I really appreciate any help I can get! I am using LabVIEW 2011 with Vision 2011
