Create high-speed imaging and video data from Sony Block Cameras over USB 3.0
Pleora’s iPORT SB-U3 External Frame Grabbers improve the usability of Sony block cameras by allowing systems manufacturers and integrators to treat them as a USB3 Vision cameras. With these external frame grabbers, Sony block cameras can transport high-speed imaging and video data over the widely available USB 3.0 bus.
The SB-U3 presents a user friendly interface to the Sony® VISCA protocol set, both graphically and in the eBUS SDK (software development kit). This allows system designers to rapidly prototype interactions between the SB-U3, the Sony block camera, and their software as well as quickly deploy production-ready software.
The SB-U3 transmits full-resolution video with low, predictable latency over a USB 3.0 link at the maximum fps supported by a wide range of Sony camera block models. The connection at the PC is a standard USB 3.0 port, eliminating the need for a desktop PC with an available peripheral card slot for a traditional frame grabber. As a result, system designers can reduce system size, cost, and power consumption by using computing platforms with smaller form factors, such as laptops, embedded PCs, and single board computers.
