looking for a windows 10 compatible bnc frame grabber with OpenCV SDK

asked 2018-05-14 07:01:51 -0500

This might sound an off topic question,but I am struggling to get hardware that offers a developer kit with C++ tools and OpenCV.

Have not found any luck. Must frame grabbers tried so far with the Old VGA BNC connector will not run under modern WIndows Win 10. I have an application that need to use the old cameras with these BNC connectors. But interfacing with computer have been imposible.

Please, anyone that is using one successfully, let me know.

it's not that off-topic.

unfortunately, opencv supports usb/firewire/ip cams, but not framegrabbers of any kind, (directly) you'll have to use their proprietary software.

once you're able to get hold of the pixels, it's easy to wrap a cv::Mat around it, and continue with opencv for processing it.

maybe running an older win version in a VM, like VirtualBox is a solution ?

Please, convert your comment to an answear to my question

different proposal:

it would be much nicer, if you wrote an answer, explaining the solution you came up with !

I am still looking for an answear but you have gave me a path to avoid looking for open souce solutions. The next thing that I am going after is cracking apart the hardware and get information about the hardware decoder and coder chips. I will certainly post an answear here of my experience and results.
