Pleora Technologies Helps PHOTONIS Extend Low-Light Camera Family with GigE Vision and USB3 Vision Interfaces

POSTED 04/29/2013

rong>Innovative camera manufacturer looks to Pleora to provide low-risk camera interface solutions.

Ottawa, Canada - Pleora Technologies, a globally trusted development partner for standards-based camera interfaces, is pleased to announce that its iPORT™ embedded camera interfaces have been chosen by PHOTONIS to extend its NOCTURN family of digital low-light CMOS cameras to provide GigE Vision® and USB3 Vision™ connectivity.

“Our development efforts are a direct result of immediate demand from our customers”, says Gregg Bell, President and CEO, PHOTONIS USA.  “Pleora has a strong reputation as an experienced and high-value development partner.  By using their USB3 Vision and GigE Vision embedded camera interfaces we can rapidly achieve compliance with those standards”.

Pleora is now providing iPORT NTx-U3 embedded camera interfaces to manufacturers of industrial cameras and other imaging devices, allowing these companies to rapidly create products which are compliant with the newly-released USB3 Vision standard.  End users of these imaging devices will benefit from rapid software application development, as the Pleora eBUS™ SDK version 4.0 has been designed to incorporate USB3 Vision and GigE Vision functionality into a single API.

“In developing the USB3 Vision compliant iPORT NTx-U3 embedded camera interface we took extraordinary efforts to ensure seamless mechanical, electrical and software compatibility between it and our latest generation of GigE Vision embedded camera interfaces”, says George Chamberlain, President of Pleora Technologies.  “This compatibility will help PHOTONIS to efficiently manufacture, maintain, and support the new designs, while giving their customers the ability to support both GigE Vision and USB3 Vision models using a single software library.”

Exhibition at SPIE DS+S
Both PHOTONIS and Pleora Technologies will be exhibiting at the upcoming SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing 2013 trade show beginning April 30 at the Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, Maryland.  Visit PHOTONIS at booth #1941 and Pleora Technologies at booth #1242.
