Pleora marks 10-year anniversary with 40 per cent growth

Share this on social media:

Pleora Technologies, a provider of networked video connectivity solutions, finished its 10th year of operation in November with almost 40 per cent growth.

Pleora attributes its healthy growth in 2010, in part, to the surge in adoption of the GigE Vision standard. This global standard ensures interoperability between products from different manufacturers.

In addition to the increasing prominence of the GigE Vision standard in manufacturing systems, Pleora notes increased adoption in other markets as a growth contributor. 'We've been broadening into a number of different verticals outside of our base in industrial automation. In particular, we're seeing a lot of pull from applications in medical imaging systems, as well as military and global security,' said Rob Lee, Pleora vice president, marketing and sales.

Tying it all together is Pleora's consistent investment in research and development over the past 10 years. George Chamberlain, president and co-founder, said: 'We're always looking towards the future; anticipating the next technology step.' In November, as example, the company showcased technology to drive GigE Vision over 10 Gigabit Ethernet. '10 GigE offers far more than a faster platform for camera computer connectivity; the combination of the high bandwidth and networking capabilities allows system designers to dramatically reduce overall system costs,' Chamberlain continued. The company plans to commercialise the technology in the second quarter of 2011.
