SDK plug-in for GStreamer library

Intelligent, Linux-based cameras and frame grabbers by the German camera manufacturer VRmagic can now also easily transfer processed image data via Ethernet. VRmagic has integrated a plug-in for the open source GStreamer library in its Software Development Kit (SDK). GStreamer is a cross-platform open source library for multimedia applications and implements several IP streaming protocols (TCP, UDP, RTP, RTCP and RTSP).

In addition to Ethernet streaming of processed images, the VRmagic plug-in offers diverse functions for image capture and camera control. Through GStreamer, developers have direct access to the VRmagic image encoder, which converts raw sensor data into several target formats such as RGB565, YUV or RLE. The TI Codecs, JPEG, MPEG4, and H.264 can also be directly integrated via GStreamer.

GSteamer’s generic programming interface allows users to combine arbitrary codecs and filters to form an image processing pipeline. Users can choose from the existing, extensive collection of plug-ins, which is constantly being expanded. The replacement of a plug-in with a more recent version does not require additional programming.
