Automation of Video and Force Tracings

Dear Colleagues,
				We are presently using a VCR with input from a b/w CCD and NIH 
image frame grabbing to measure physical deformation of a compressed 
aggregate of cells. Additionally we are using a Cahn Ventron balance 
attached to a chart recorder taking force measurements from parallel 
plates as compression is occuring. Does anyone know of software 
which could allow us to automate this- ie, a system that will take 
and chart input from a Cahn balance and also frame-grab at specific 
time points? Any thoughts on how to hook up an old Cahn balance 
without a computer link is also welcome.																									                    			       
																										Thanks
