Video-to-FireWire Converter (Uncompressed Acquisition)

Video-to-FireWire converter yields uncompressed image data streams.

In recent months, it has become increasingly easy to purchase low cost PCs, complete with one or more FireWire interfaces, at just about every bargain store.

As it would appear that the public at large seems to have heard of the terms "FireWire" and "IEEE 1394", you have probably been asking yourself whether you should through away your good old video hardware and upgrade to a system based on Firewire.

However, such an update is costly. And, thanks to the DFG/1394-1e, not at all necessary!

With the DFG/1394-1e we have developed a converter that lets you plug any video source based upon one of the standards EIA, CCIR, NTSC or PAL directly into a FireWire interface.

The DFG/1394-1e is shipped with the software IC Imaging Control Standard. It comprises:

  • Sample applications to acquire single images and image sequences
  • A programming interface based on an ActiveX and a C++ class library
  • Numerous programming samples as source code, to get you started

As always, should you wish to speak to us about this or any other topic related to machine vision, please call us or email us.
