Pleora Technologies, a supplier of high-performance video interfaces, has launched the iPort CL-U3 and CL-Ten Full external frame grabbers, which transforms Camera Link cameras into USB3 Vision and GigE Vision-compliant cameras, respectively.
Using the iPort CL-U3, the uncompressed video is transmitted with low, consistent latency over a USB 3.0 cable directly to existing ports on a computer or display. By eliminating the need for a Camera Link frame grabber in a PCIe slot, designers are free to choose from a broad selection of small form factor and low-power computing platforms, including laptops, embedded systems, and tablets.
At the computing platform, the iPort CL-U3 is supported by Pleora’s eBUS SDK application tool kit and drivers. The software suites allows designers to prototype and deploy production-ready software rapidly, supporting video transmission over 10 GigE, GigE, USB 3.0, and wireless using the same application programming interface (API).
