Datacube MV200 and ImageFlow user's guide

James Vallino

Technical report for the Datacube MV200. Please see for more information.


The Datacube MaxVideo 200 is a high-speed image processing system that can provide video rate processing of images. A user writes programs using the Datacube ImageFlow libraries to control the hardware. Learning the details of ImageFlow programming is a daunting task for the new user. This learning task is made more difficult because the manuals for the MaxVideo 200 hardware and ImageFlow software are rather obscure to the typical novice user. This user''s guide describes several simple ImageFlow programs. Emphasis is placed on providing some of the folklore that is needed to get started in MV200/ImageFlow programming. Also, the organization of the information in the Datacube manuals is described so that the new user can continue exploring on their own system features that are not in the sample programs.
