Gigabit Ethernet – GigE Vision

Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) is the fastest growing interface for digital cameras in the field of industrial image processing. It is a universally applicable digital interface, which for the first time provides the potential to produce cameras that can replace analogue devices in almost every application.

Gigabit Ethernet offers the widest technological flexibility with regard to bandwidth, cable length, and multi-camera functionality. It is the right choice for data rates of up to 100 MB/s and a maximum cable length of 100 meters. And it makes complex setups with several cameras very simple.

Some of the advantages of the GigE interface cameras are:
  • High data transfer rates
  • Uses existing Ethernet infrastructure
  • Long cable lengths are possible
  • Easy integration in all image processing applications (libraries)
  • High degree of standardisation provided by the Gigabit Ethernet and GigE Vision standards

Take a look at some of our GigE cameras:

or an alternative could be to use your existing analogue cameras combined with Pleora Technologies GigE frame grabbers or embedded video interface units, convert and create full digital video connectivity.
