I am trying to create a videoinput object for my DALSA Xcelera-CL PX4 Dual framegrabber. When I execute the IMAQHWINFO command as follows:
I recieve the following output:
InstalledAdaptors: {}
MATLABVersion: '9.0 (R2016a)'
ToolboxName: 'Image Acquisition Toolbox'
ToolboxVersion: '5.0 (R2016a)'
Running the command like this:
yields: "Invalid ADAPTOR specified. Type 'imaqhwinfo' for a list of installed ADAPTORs. Image acquisition adaptors may be available as downloadable support packages. Open Support Package Installer to install additional vendors."
I have installed the support package "Teledyne DALSA Sapera Hardware" using the support package installer. According to the documentation this framegrabber should be supported (although i am not sure if a driver version sapera>7.2 is permissible as the documentation is a little bit contradictory here). The setup is working, i am able to capture images with the driver tool CamExpert. The used hardware and software is:
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Version 6.1 (Build 7601: Service Pack 1), x64
MATLAB Version: (R2016a), x64
Image Acquisition Toolbox Version 5.0 (R2016a)
Image Processing Toolbox Version 9.4 (R2016a)
Xcelera-CL PX4 Dual with X64 Xcelera-CL PX4 Driver,
Sapera LT Version,
What is wrong here?

Hi Matthias,
Can you install version 7.2 of the driver? That should work.

Contact Teledyne Dalsa support and request a copy of Sapera LT 7.2. This is the only way you can get this specific version of the software. Uninstall and newer/older versions of Sapera LT (the current version is 8.3) and then install 7.2. Once I did this MatLab was able to recognize the frame grabber and I was good to go!
