GigE Vision Cameras


With the advent of the GigE Vision™ standard, the camera market is poised for significant change. Interfaces like FireWire, USB 2.0 and Camera Link suffer from limited cable length, limited data rate and the lack of interface standardization. Utilizing GigE Vision, Prosilica’s GE-Series cameras resolve these limitations through a standards-based means of camera control and reliable data transport at full gigabit speeds over standard network cable up to 100 meters long.

Some camera companies created Gigabit Ethernet cameras using third-party hardware and software modules, thereby limiting the support they can offer. However, Prosilica designed all the hardware, firmware, software, and SDK of their GE-Series cameras and, as the end-to-end designer and manufacturer, can provide superior camera performance and technical support.

The GE-Series GigE Vision-compliant cameras work “plug-and-play” with standard network hardware and low-cost Cat5e cabling. Very long cable lengths allow the host computer to be located far from the camera. Prosilica’s SDK is universally praised by GE-Series customers for its simplicity and ease of use.

Prosilica’s GE-Series Gigabit Ethernet cameras are being used in all kinds of applications including industrial inspection, avionics, robotic guidance, medical imaging, traffic and security, pharmaceutical packaging, submarine imaging, military testing and much more.
