ActiveDcam SDK includes a DirectShow Video Capture Filter which allows Windows users to view/capture images from 1394 cameras and control camera parameters in DirectShow-compliant applications such as AmCap, Video Capturix, Blaze Media Pro and others. The filter is automatically installed on your system during ActiveDcam Installation.

The filter has an output Capture Pin which can be connected to other DirectShow filters or graph. The pin supports all video modes provided by DCAM-compliant cameras, with high-depth pixel modes automatically converted to 8-bit monochrome or 24-bit RGB format.

ActiveDcam Video Capture Filter provides a programmatic access to the video acquisition and camera properties through a set of standard and custom DirectShow interfaces. For more information on DirectShow programming refer to DirectShow Quick Reference Guide and DirectShow Interfaces.
