Pleora iPORT HDSDI-U3 External Frame Grabber

Quick Overview

Converts HD-SDI cameras, video processors, and systems into native USB3 Vision.

903-0015 iPORT HDSDI-U3 in enclosure $695.00
903-0017 iPORT HDSDI-U3 Development Kit $895.00

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.

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.
