GigE Vision Solution for Sony Camera Blocks

POSTED 11/03/2010

rong>iPORT™ SB-Pro IP engines transform camera blocks from Sony into GigE Vision® compliant cameras

Pleora Technologies, a world leader in networked video connectivity solutions for mission-critical systems, will premiere its iPORT™ SB-Pro IP engines—the latest offering in its rich solution-set for high-performance video over Ethernet—at the VISION 2010 trade fair in Stuttgart, Germany.

Pleora’s iPORT SB-Pro IP engines enable camera blocks from Sony to be transformed into GigE Vision® compliant cameras. By leveraging the open GigE Vision and GenICam™ standards for communications over a Gigabit Ethernet link, iPORT SB-Pro IP engines increase interoperability between products from different manufacturers, while dramatically lowering system cost and complexity.

“The market has been pushing Pleora to create a GigE Vision solution for the camera block for some time,” says Pleora’s Rob Lee, Vice President, Marketing and Sales. “With the iPORT SB-Pro, we are not only providing a reliable and easy-to-integrate GigE Vision solution, but we have also abstracted the Sony® VISCA™ protocol over Ethernet in the industry-standard GenICam interface. This reduces system complexity because it allows for video and camera control over a single cable.”

The compact iPORT SB-Pro IP engines transmit high-definition video with low, predictable latency. Complete with extensive feature control using GenICam, this product is ideal for system integrators looking to differentiate their offerings, increase interoperability and introduce networking capabilities.

Compatible with Pleora’s vDisplay™ video receivers and eBUS™ SDK, the iPORT SB-Pro IP engines enable the Sony family of block cameras—including the newest HD models—to become part of a networked video connectivity solution.
