Pleora Connects with Phase 1 to Expand US Distribution

POSTED 05/20/2011

Skilled Phase 1 team to distribute and support Pleora's innovative video networking solutions for Sony block cameras in all US regions
OTTAWA, CANADA:  Pleora Technologies, a world leader in networked video connectivity solutions for mission-critical systems, and Phase 1 Technology Corp., a leading distributor of machine vision products, today announced a deal that gives US-based OEMs and systems integrators convenient access to, and skilled applications support for, Pleora's video networking solutions for Sony block cameras.

Under the agreement, Phase 1 will distribute and provide applications support for these Pleora solutions in all US regions. The solutions transform Sony block cameras into high-performance, fully compliant GigE Vision® and GenICam ™ products, allowing them to transport imaging data over high-bandwidth Ethernet-based video networks in real-time, with low and consistent latency.

"Phase 1 has an experienced team of applications experts and a strong presence in the US industrial imaging community," says George Chamberlain, President of Pleora Technologies. "The Phase 1 team is well equipped to advise OEMs and systems integrators on how Pleora's interface solutions for Sony block cameras can simplify deployments, improve efficiencies, and save money."

"When combined with Pleora's solutions,” says Rusty Ponce de Leon, President of Phase 1 Technology Corp., “Sony's well-priced block cameras become ideal for opportunities in the medical, surveillance, and traffic markets that need video networking, ease of use, and a digital output. We are a leading US distributor of Sony block cameras, so this agreement is a good strategic fit for both companies."

Pleora's networking solutions for Sony block cameras are based on the iPORT™ SB-Pro IP engines and the eBUS™ SDK, with its eBUS Universal Pro driver . For the target applications, the solutions pair nicely with other elements in Pleora's video networking portfolio, such as its vDisplay™ HDI-Pro IP engines, a line of video receivers that shrinks the size, cost, and power consumption of real-time viewing stations.

Pleora’s iPORT SB-Pro IP engines, first unveiled in November 2010, integrate with the popular and proven Sony FCB-H11 high-definition color block camera, and key members of the newly-introduced FCB-EX E series . An additional iPORT SB-Pro IP engine, scheduled for release in the coming weeks, will complement FCB-EH series cameras.
