Factors limiting performance in Camera Link connections, and how to get around them

Camera Link is a universal standard for the transmission of high speed digital images over medium distances (around 10 metres). The standard is well-established in the machine vision industry, and it is broadly adopted. A large number of Camera Link cameras are available. It is therefore important to identify and analyse the factors limiting the performance of Camera Link connections; and to consider methods aimed at compensating those limiting factors, to increase the performance of Camera Link connections.
