Video Acquisition Using LabVIEW - Reduced Resolution


Hi, I am using Labview to control an Andor iXON Ultra 897 CCD camera, and laser lines. However, the video quality is not as good as the one I got from NIS-Elements software. I am a newbie to LabVIEW, and I'm not very experienced in CCD camera. Can someone please give me any idea of how the quality of videos are reduced and how I may recover the resolution? (By reduced, I mean some fluorescent signal can be detected in NIS-Element interface, but not visible from LabVIEW platform. I have tried many times to examine the quality of my experiment materials, but I think they are not very likely to cause the problem).


I am guessing the reason can be the format of videos, i.e. I use nd2 on NIS-Element while the LabVIEW records(or convert, I have to look into the original program to find out this) the videos in a series of tiff format images. 


Thanks in advance! Any help is much appreciated!Heart

Do you have the Andor SDK which seems to have "hooks" into LabVIEW?  The company seems to know how to interface with IMAQ or IMAQdx -- might check their web-site.
