New embedded video interface delivers size, power, and performance advantages while simplifying design of advanced cameras, x-ray detector panels, and imaging systems
OTTAWA, CANADA, October 17, 2013: Pleora Technologies, the world's leading supplier of high-performance video interfaces, today introduced the industry's first 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, with full availability scheduled for early 2014.
Pleora's iPORT NTx-GigE delivers design and performance advantages that speed the path to GigE Vision 2.0 compliance - including enhanced synchronization of image capture functions with other system elements - while reducing time-to-market, increasing reliability, and lowering cost.
"The iPORT NTx-GigE meets growing demand from manufacturers for a fast, economical, and low-risk way to integrate GigE Vision 2.0-compliant connectivity into cameras and imaging systems," said John Phillips, senior marketing manager, Pleora Technologies. "Together with the iPORT NTx-U3 for USB3 Vision™ connectivity family, it supports our goal of providing manufacturers with a cost-effective, one-stop shop for all high-performance video interface needs."
Key benefits of the iPORT NTx-GigE include:
• Ultra-Compact Form Factor - Measuring just 37 millimeters (mm) x 37 mm x 28 mm - no bigger than the size of a man's wrist watch - the embedded hardware is easily embedded into small-body cameras, flat-panel imaging devices x-ray detectors, and imaging systems;
• Flexible, Low-Power Performance - Power over Ethernet (PoE) and external power options, combined with power consumption of approximately 2 watts when streaming video at 1 Gb/s, provides design flexibility while lowering component and operating costs;
• Per-Frame Metadata - Ability to add metadata, such as results of image pre-processing or the exact position of a quadrature encoder at the time the image was captured, to each image transmitted over the GigE link;
• IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol - Synchronization of multiple cameras and imaging devices to a network master clock with up to 1 μs (microsecond) precision enables exact triggering of image acquisition using the GigE Vision 2.0 action command feature.
