Pleora’s iPORT™ SB-GigE-EV7520A

Quick Overview

Pleora’s iPORT™ SB-GigE-EV7520A External Frame Grabber improves the usability of a Sony block FCB-EV7520A camera by allowing systems manufacturers and integrators to treat it as a native GigE Vision® camera.

The SB-GigE-EV7520A 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-GigE-EV7520A, the FCB-EV7520A, and their software as well as quickly deploy production-ready software. The SB-GigE-EV7520A transmits full-resolution video with low, predictable latency over a GigE link. The connection at the PC is a standard GigE plug, 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. GigE supports cabling distances of up to 100 meters using standard CAT5e/6 cabling. Deploying an off-the-shelf Ethernet switch, extended distances and more flexible network configurations are supported.




  • Transforms Sony block FCB-EV7520A camera into GigE Vision camera – transmit full-resolution images at the maximum rate supported by the block camera with low, predictable latency
  • Power, control, and video over the same cable
  • Plugs into a wide range of computing platforms without needing a PCI frame grabber
  • Converts video to 8-bit monochrome formats to conserve bandwidth (except in 1080p modes at 50 fps or higher)
  • Simplifies Sony VISCA interface
  • GigE Vision and GenICam compliant, enabling interoperability in multi-vendor environments
