You may need different NI vision software
, depending on what you're hoping to accomplish.
Because you're hoping to acquire images and will be performing only basic functions like viewing them and saving them to disk, the functionality included with NI's camera drivers should fit your needs.
Depending on the type of hardware you're using, you may end up using IMAQ, IMAQdx, or IMAQ I/O
. All 3 of these drivers are included in the same download- Vision Acquisition Software, or VAS, which can be downloaded from our website
When you download and install VAS on your system, you will have the option to either activate the software or run it in trial mode. For more information on Vision Acquisition Software's licensing, please reference our Vision Licensing page
