This paper presents a novel system for texture feature extraction of video frames using Gray Level Co - occurrence Matrix (GLCM).GLCM extraction is done using hardware. Texture is one of the important characteristics used in identifying regions of interest or objects in an image. GLCM is one of the statistical method of examining texture that considers the spatial rel ationship of pixels is the GLCM, also known as the gray level spatial dependence matrix. The GLCM functions are used to characterize the texture of an image by calculating how often pairs of pixel with specific values and in a specified spatial relationshi p that occurs in an image. This created GLCM is then used for extracting statistical measures. GLCM is a second order statistical feature which contains information about pixels having similar gray level values in an image.
