Unicap provides a uniform API for all kinds of video capture devices. Unicap was designed keeping simplicity in mind so that developers can focus on their actual image processing tasks when using video capture devices.
Device drivers are accessed via a plugin mechanism. Support for new devices can be added on the fly, without recompilation of the library. The API remains the same for each device so that an application using unicap immediately works with all devices supported by unicap.
In the near future, transparent network support will be available allowing applications to use devices connected to a remote computer just as if they were local.
