IC USB 3 to 10 GigE Software Converter

Convert and transmit USB 3 video to 10 GigE

Software for the conversion and transmission of image data from The Imaging Source's USB 3 cameras to a 10 GigE interface

USB offers a potential alternative to the limited bandwidth of GigE but is unfortunately limited to short lengths. A solution to this dilemma is the IC USB 3 to 10 GigE software converter. A mini PC (e.g. Intel NUC) is connected to a high-resolution USB 3 camera which via software functions as a converter - transmitting image data from the USB 3 camera to a 10 GigE interface. The attached camera can then be controlled by any PC with a 10 GigE interface as a regular GigE Vision camera.

Key features

  • Extend network distances up to 100 m
  • Software comes free of charge with all USB 3 cameras from The Imaging Source
  • Full-speed transmission of USB 3 image data over Cat6 and fiber cables
  • Control any The Imaging Source USB 3 camera as a GigE Vision camera
  • Supports multiple cameras
