ScanImage 2018 : Imaging Guide

Single vs Multi-Channel Acquisition Mode

The frame grabber operates in one of two modes:

Single Channel: Used when one channel is displayed and/or saved.

Multi Channel: Used when more than one channel is displayed or saved. Also used when one channel is displayed while one different (non-displayed) channel is saved.

 The amount of data transferred from the FlexRIO to the PC running Scanimage is four times greater in Multi Channel mode compared to Single Channel mode.
