After you develop your application using Image Processing Toolbox™, you can generate portable C source code, standalone executables, or standalone applications from your MATLAB® code. With code generation, you can:
Run image processing code on machines that do not have MATLAB installed.
Speed up processing while you work in MATLAB.
Implement hardware-friendly algorithms using a pixel-streaming interface.
Image Processing Toolbox also includes functions that can target execution of an algorithm on a GPU rather than on a CPU.
