This paper presents a software architecture for a software-synchronized multicamera setup. The software allows consistent multi-image acquisition, image processing and decision making. It consists of several programs that perform certain tasks and communicate with each other through shared memory space or TCP/IP packets. The software system can easily accommodate different number of FireWire digital cameras and networked computers. Minimal hardware requirement is the main advantage of the system which makes it flexible and transportable. The functionality of the system is demonstrated on a simple telepresence application.
