Synchronous and in Real Time: Multi-Camera Applications in the GigE Network
How can multi-camera applications be designed to ensure that all cameras acquire their images at once — without requiring an extra cable? Our White Paper explains how it's done.
There are times when synchronous images from multiple cameras must be acquired in real time, such as when capturing a shot on goal from multiple angles, when using multiple cameras for conveyor belt inspections, in robotics or as part of 3D triangulation applications.
Our White Paper explains how multi-camera applications use the functions inherent to the GigE Vision 2.0 standard to achieve synchronous image acquisition without requiring an additional trigger cable.
Questions that we'll address in detail in our White Paper
- Triggering multiple cameras for image capture via Ethernet (Action Commands)
- Synchronizing multiple free-running cameras (Synchronous Free Run)
- The basis for synchronization of connected devices, camera and PC (Precision Time Protocol)
- Real-time limits
