Frame Server Module

Frame Server is responsible for grabbing images simultaneously from up to 3 cameras from a Matrox Meteor card into an RGB image. The server divides the RGB image into 3 separate grayscale components and saves into shared buffer for consumption by the clients (using mmap call).

The images from the cameras must be synchronized to the same clock. This can be achieved by using a junction box with some specialized cabling. One camera is assigned to be the master and other cameras use the sync clock generated by the master camera.
