ActiveUSB SDK includes a DirectShow Video Capture Filter which allows Windows users to view/capture images from USB3 cameras and control camera parameters in DirectShow-compliant applications such as AmCap, VirtualDub, Video Capturix and others. The filter is automatically installed on your system during ActiveUSB 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 USB3 Vision compliant cameras, with high-depth pixel modes automatically converted to 8-bit monochrome or 24-bit RGB format.

ActiveUSB 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.
