Microsoft Media Foundation compatible imaging device

Supported hardware devices

Any compatible frame grabbers, surgical microscopes (for example Zeiss Pentero), endoscopes, webcams, etc. through Microsoft Media Foundation interface.

Supported platforms

Installation

Media foundation require Microsoft Windows 7 or later.

If your framegrabber uses a "crossbar" for switching between multiple inputs (e.g., composite, s-video) then you may need to connect to your device through a virtual camera software (such as http://splitcamera.com/ or https://manycam.com/). It is recommended to upgrade to a more recent UVC 1.1 compatible device (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_video_device_class) or use Imaging controls analog USB frame grabber or Epiphan frame grabber imaging devices that Plus has built-in native support for.
