pValue [out,retval]  
Pointer to the Boolean that is TRUE if the monitor synchronization is enable, or FALSE otherwise

Example


This VB example enables the monitor synchronization:

ActiveDcam1.MonitorSync = 
True

MsgBox ActiveDcam1.MonitorSync
 

Remarks


Enabling the monitor synchronization option causes the camera frame rate to exactly match the current refresh rate of the system monitor thus eleminating all the display artifacts related to the digital image transfer, such as the display tearing and syncopation. The monitor synchronization algorithm uses a patent-pending technique from A&B Software. Fore more details refer to Software overcomes display artifacts in digital image transfer
.

Note that this property will be unavailable if the camera does not support the software trigger.
