iPort NTx-GigE embedded video interface

Share this on social media:

Pleora Technologies has introduced the iPort NTx-GigE embedded video interface, for integrating GigE Vision 2.0-compliant video connectivity into cameras, x-ray detector panels, and imaging systems. The product 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 measures just 37mm x 37mm x 28mm and is easily embedded into small-body cameras, flat-panel imaging devices, x-ray detectors, and imaging systems.  The power over Ethernet (PoE) and external power options, combined with power consumption of approximately 2W when streaming video at 1 Gb/s, provides design flexibility.  

The company says there is also the capacity 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.

The IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol allows the synchronisation of multiple cameras and imaging devices to a network master clock with up to 1μs precision. This enables exact triggering of image acquisition using the GigE Vision 2.0 action command feature.

Pleora has also introduced its iPort NTx-U3, a family of embedded hardware products for integrating USB3 Vision-compliant video connectivity into cameras and imaging systems.
