AD Vision Toolkit (or ADV Toolkit) is a free image processing toolkit for LabVIEW.

The toolkit able to open images in the following formats: BMP, PNG, JPEG, JPEG2000, TIFF, AIPD, GIF, ICO, JNG, KOALA, KODAK, MNG, PCX, PBM, PGM, PPM, PFM, PICT, PSD, TARGA (in general all types which are supported by FreeImage Library).

Acquisition (Capture) done via OpenCV. Most USB Web Cam should be OK (multiple cameras supported as well).

TWAIN is supported (via EZTwain Classic). The image can be transferred from any TWAIN-compatible scanner or camera directly to IMAQ Vision Image.

ADV NPP Part based on NVIDIA Performance Primitives library and enables usage of NVIDIA GPU resources for image processing directly from LabVIEW environment. This can dramatically increase performance of your application.

The best use case is using this toolkit together with NI Vision. But you can also using ADV toolkit separately, therefore there are two installers available. Functionally both version are exactly the same.
