iPORT NTx-Ten Embedded Video Interface

High-performance video connectivity using 10 GigE technology

Pleora’s iPORT™ NTx-Ten Embedded Video Interface hardware provides system and camera manufacturers with a straightforward way to integrate 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) video connectivity into their products. Using the NTx-Ten, manufacturers can shorten time-to-market, reduce development and deployment risk, and lower design and system costs.

The NTx-Ten interacts seamlessly with Pleora's other products in networked or point-to-point digital video systems. The hardware also complies fully with the GigE Vision® 2.0 and GenICam™ standards, ensuring interoperability with third-party equipment in multi-vendor environments.

A sophisticated on-board Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and support for the IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol allows users to precisely measure, synchronize, and control the operation of other system elements.

GigE Vision and GenICam are both agnostic to Ethernet link speed, which means the NTx-Ten can be combined into systems alongside GigE Vision cameras operating at 1 Gb/s, with no software modifications.

The NTx-Ten converts video data to Ethernet packets and sends it with low, consistent latency over a 10 GigE link to receiving software or hardware. The NTx-Ten is compatible with fiber-based links via an SFP+ (small form-factor pluggable) connector, and connects easily to off-the-shelf 10 GigE components such as network cards and switches.

Pleora’s iPORT NTx-Ten Embedded Video Interface is bundled with the eBUS™ SDK, a feature-rich application development toolkit for manufacturers to rebrand and distribute with their end-products.

To speed time-to-market, Pleora offers a development kit for the NTx-Ten Embedded Video Interface. This kit allows manufacturers to produce system or camera prototypes and proof-of-concept demonstrations easily and rapidly, often without undertaking hardware development.
