I want to process images coming from Ultrastudio SDI (Blackmagic Design). Is the Image Acquisition Toolbox compatible with this device for real time image processing? Are there any examples of such an application?

The actual physical camera connects to Ultrastudio SDI which is a frame grabber that connects to the PC. Unfortunately I do not have access to the camera at the moment so I can't check if it comes up in the "Imaging Devices" category, so the answer to the second question is I am not sure.

This link for your product says that it has directshow drivers. Can you install the OS Generic Support package and try this?
You can install the support package using the command:

I don't see it at, but if the camera shows up as a generic video device, it might be able to work with the generic video adapter.
