Pleora’s iPORT™ SB-U3 External Frame Grabbers improve the usability of Sony block cameras by allowing systems manufacturers and integrators to treat them as native USB3 Vision™ cameras. With these external frame grabbers, Sony block cameras can transport high-speed imaging and video data over the widely available USB 3.0 bus. The cameras can also be used with a broader selection of computing platforms, lowering system costs.
The SB-U3 transmits full-resolution video with low, predictable latency over a USB 3.0 link at the maximum frames per second (fps) supported by a wide range of Sony camera block models. The connection at the PC is a standard USB 3.0 port, eliminating the need for a desktop PC with an available peripheral card slot for a traditional frame grabber. The SB-U3 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-U3, the Sony block camera, and their software as well as quickly deploy production-ready software. The SB-U3 is compatible with the following cameras:
