iPORT Analog-Pro External Frame Grabbers

Preserve investments in existing cameras and optics, while converting to fully digital video connectivity

Pleora’s iPORT™ Analog-Pro External Frame Grabbers allow system manufacturers and integrators to treat analog cameras as native GigE Vision® cameras. With these external frame grabbers, analog cameras enjoy the long-distance reach of Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) for both video and remote control, and can be mixed with native GigE Vision cameras in networked environments.

System manufacturers can shorten time-to-market, reduce development and deployment risk, and lower design and system costs by reusing expensive or application-specific analog cameras in GigE Vision installations, with minimal software development.

iPORT Analog-Pro External Frame Grabbers interact seamlessly with Pleora's other products in networked or point-to-point digital video systems. The frame grabbers also comply fully with the GigE Vision and GenICam™ standards, enabling interoperation with third-party equipment in multi-vendor environments.

Compact and simple to integrate, Analog-Pro external frame grabbers can transmit two channels of composite (NTSC, PAL, CCIR, or RS-170) video simultaneously at up to 30 frames per second (fps) each with low, predictable latency over a GigE link. GigE supports cabling distances of up to 100 meters using standard CAT5e/6 wiring. With off-the-shelf Ethernet switches, distances can be unlimited.

At the PC, Analog-Pro External Frame Grabbers connect via GigE, eliminating the need for a desktop computer with an available peripheral card slot. 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.

The Analog-Pro is bundled with Pleora’s feature-rich application toolkit, eBUS™ SDK, and compatible with Pleora’s vDisplay™ External Frame Grabbers, which deliver video directly to a monitor.
