JULY 17, 2009--e2v (Chelmsford, UK; www.e2v.com), a designer and manufacturer of industrial imaging sensors and cameras, and Pleora Technologies (Ottawa, ON, Canada; www.pleora.com), a supplier of video connectivity products, have announced a partnership agreement whereby e2v will employ Pleora's iPORT eBUS Universal and Optima Drivers to communicate with e2v's industrial inspection cameras featuring Gigabit Ethernet interfaces.
Christophe Robinet, strategic marketing manager for industrial imaging products at e2v, says, "This agreement enables e2v to ensure the smooth integration of our GigE cameras in any system, and through this partnership, we can accelerate the development of cameras with advanced GigE features and more quickly satisfy growing customer demand for high-performance, standards-compliant GigE connectivity."
"This agreement is a real positive because it allows both our companies to focus on what we do best," says Sebastien Dignard, business manager for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa at Pleora Technologies. "Pleora's iPORT solution is recognized for its field-proven reliability, real-time performance, and rich feature set, so it's an excellent fit for the high-end cameras e2v offers."
e2v's flagship line of AViiVA linescan industrial cameras will be the first to incorporate Pleora's GigE video connectivity technology. Effective immediately, Pleora's iPORT drivers will be offered with the AViiVA UM2 GE series. Future GigE e2v linescan cameras, starting with the EM 1GEV series, part of the newly announced AViiVA II range, will also feature Pleora's iPORT driver solution.
e2v cameras equipped with iPORT technology will comply fully with the GigE Vision and GenICam standards.
