Matrox Meteor-II for CompactPCI and PC/104-Plus interface to standard NTSC, PAL, RS-170 and CCIR cameras and devices. They provide real-time color and monochrome video capture, multiple video inputs, PCI bus mastering capabilities, sustained transfers to system memory at up to 130 MB/sec, 4 MB on-board memory, as well as trigger input. Expansion includes a hardware module for Motion JPEG compression and decompression.

Other members of the Matrox Meteor-II frame grabber family, namely the Multi-Channel and Digital, are to follow for CompactPCI and PC/104-Plus starting with the Matrox Meteor-II/Multi-Channel for PC/104-Plus. Software support includes the Matrox Imaging Library software development toolkit. MIL offers OEMs and system integrators an extensive set of field-proven, high-level functions for image capture, transfer, processing (point-to-point, statistics, filtering, morphology, geometric transforms, FFT, JPEG Codec, and segmentation), pattern matching, blob analysis, gauging, calibration, bar and matrix code reading, OCR, graphics and display. Optimized for Intel MMX technology, MIL is available as 'C' libraries or ActiveX controls for rapid development of machine vision and imaging applications. MIL is a common API across current and future Matrox frame grabbers and vision processors. MIL-Lite, a subset of MIL that provides image capture, transfer and display control, is also available. Matrox Intellicam, a Windows-based camera configuration utility, is bundled with MIL or MIL-Lite for quick and easy camera interfacing.
