Using the Pleora iPORT HDSDI-U3 external frame grabber, HD-SDI equipment can transport high-speed imaging and video data over the widely available USB 3.0 bus. The equipment can also be used with a broader selection of smaller form factor, low-power computing platforms to help reduce system costs.Based on a field-proven design, the HDSDI-U3 delivers additional benefits including high bandwidth output, extended temperature operating range, GPIO, and RS-485 data communications functionality enabling real-time, low-jitter triggering of cameras, video processors, and synchronization of other imaging system elements.
Transmits video from HD-SDI equipment over USB 3.0, with low, predictable latency
Plugs into a wide range of computing platforms without needing a PCI/PCIe frame grabber
Compact and low power
120 MB frame buffer
Record and playback functionality
USB3 Vision and GenICam compatible
Power, control, and video over the same USB 3.0 cable
Bundled with Pleora’s feature-rich eBUS™ SDK application toolkit
The HDSDI-U3 transmits video from HD-SDI cameras, endoscopes, and other equipment with low, predictable latency over a USB 3.0 link. The connection at the workstation is a standard USB 3.0 port, eliminating the need for a desktop computer with an available peripheral card slot for a traditional frame grabber. As a result, designers can reduce system size, cost, and power consumption by using computing platforms with smaller form factors, such as laptops, embedded computers, and single-board computers.
Pleora’s HDSDI-U3 External Frame Grabbers help systems manufacturers and integrators to leverage the performance attributes of USB 3.0, including high-bandwidth, power over cable, and plug-and-play usability. The HDSDI-U3 complies fully with the USB3 Vision and GenCam™ standards, ensuring interoperability with third-party equipment in multi-vendor environments.
