Transform block cameras from Sony into GigE Vision compliant cameras with Pleora’s iPORT SB-Pro IP engines. Compact and simple to integrate, iPORT SB-Pro IP engines transmit full resolution video with low, predictable latency. Complete with feature control using the GenICam standard, these products are ideal for systems integrators looking to differentiate their offerings, increase interoperability, and introduce networking capabilities. iPORT SB-Pro IP engines leverage the open GigE Vision and GenICam standards for communication over a Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) link, which increases interoperability between products from different manufacturers, while dramatically lowering system cost and complexity.
With GigE, cabling distances of up to 100m can be achieved using standard CAT5/6 cabling; by incorporating common, off-the-shelf switches, distances can be unlimited. Decreased cable size, increased flexibility, and a tighter cable bend radius are additional benefits gained when using GigE for video transfer. System costs and complexity can be further decreased by having video and control signals existing on a single cable. iPORT SB-Pro IP engines abstract the Sony VISCA protocol into an industry-standard GenICam interface over Ethernet.
GenICam compliant off-theshelf software packages can be used to control the camera’s zoom, focus, exposure settings, and more —without modification. Able to transmit full resolution video at up to 30 frames per second with low, consistent latency, iPORT SB-Pro IP engines are available as compact, low-power OEM board sets designed for use in a variety of housings.
iPORT SB-Pro IP engines are built with connectors for power, general purpose inputs and outputs (GPIO) and serial communication, which allows for a simple connection to a block camera from Sony.
