GigE Vision Interface Supports Sony Block Camera

Pleora Technologies introduces what it’s calling the imaging market’s first external frame grabber that helps manufacturers and system integrators reduce costs, simplify cabling, and speed time-to-market by converting Sony FCB-EV7520A block cameras into GigE Vision 2.0 cameras. The iPORT SB-GigE-EV7520A external frame grabbers for block cameras have been designed into a wide range of imaging applications, including medical telepresence, perimeter security, transportation, robotics, sports analysis, and drone systems. They transmit video with low, consistent latency at high frame rates between the Sony block camera and computing platforms or displays.

 

Video, power, and control data is transmitted over low-cost Ethernet cabling to existing ports on the computer or display. Designers can choose from a broad selection of small form factor and low-power computing platforms, including laptops and embedded systems.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.

 

The networking flexibility of GigE means images from multiple Sony block cameras can be aggregated to a single port, and/or images from one Sony block camera can be multicast to multiple PCs and displays. With the extended reach of GigE – up to 100 meters over standard Cat5e/6 cabling and further with basic network switching – image analysis equipment can be centralized in a remote location.

 

The iPORT SB-GigE-EV7520A is available now. For greater insights, peruse the datasheet and/or call 613-270-0625.
