MATLAB can be used for controlling Pixelink cameras including PL-B, PL-D, and PL-E cameras. To interface Pixelink cameras with MATLAB, both the Pixelink MATLAB adaptor and either Pixelink Capture or the Pixelink SDK must be installed. The Pixelink MATLAB adaptor can be downloaded using the link provided below, and includes the following installation files and folders. It can also be useful to review the How to install Pixelink MATLAB Adaptor using IMAQ GUI article.

Note: The following camera models and some of their functionality are not supported

    - PL-D755-POL camera models

    - Autofocus functionality

    - Gain HDR functionality of PL-D753 and PL-D757 camera models
