Embedded Video Interface
- Tuesday, 01 April 2014
Pleora Technologies (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) has introduced an embedded hardware product for integrating GigE Vision 2.0™-compliant video connectivity into cameras, x-ray detector panels, and imaging systems. The iPORT™ NTx-GigE Embedded Video Interface is now in trials for use in medical, military, and industrial automation applications. Other features of the 37 × 37 × 28 mm iPORT NTx-GigE include Power over Ethernet (PoE) and external power options, combined with power consumption of approximately 2 watts when streaming video at 1 Gb/s. Metadata, such as pre-processing results or the position of a quadrature encoder, can be added to each image transmitted over the GigE link. The IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol synchronizes multiple cameras and imaging devices to a network master clock, with up to 1 μs (microsecond) precision.
