Benefits of GigE Vision thanks to FGI interface board
The FGI interface board, developed by STEMMER IMAGING, brings all the well-
established benefits of GigE Vision to this versatile camera range, including
the ability to transmit images up to 100m over industry-standard Ethernet
By taking full advantage of the progressive scan image sensor, the camera
effectively doubles the image resolution compared to earlier interlaced
versions of the cameras. Full control of the camera is possible through the
GigE Vision and GenICam-compliant interface.
CVB CameraSuite included
The powerful, hardware-independent CVB CameraSuite that is delivered together with the cameras, is a fully featured, easy-to-install SDK.
It includes everything needed to develop users' own vision applications
quickly and easily and features sample applications as well as the SDK. It
enables the user to take full advantage of the performance and -reliability of
the GigE Vision technology in combination with Sony's FCB-EX E cameras.
