Engineers at Pleora Technologies (Ontario, Canada) plan to demonstrate a GigE Vision over wireless system at the upcoming Vision 2012 show in Stuttgart, Germany in November.

The new video interfacing option -- like all of Pleora's offerings -- is built upon standard IT platforms, does not require a frame grabber, and is supported by a common software development kit.

Attendees at the upcoming Vision 2012 show will be able to witness a live demonstration of an infrared camera with a GigE Vision wireless interface. The images from the camera will be multicast to a PC running Pleora’s eBUS SDK and to a monitor via a vDisplay HDI-Pro IP engine.

"Pleora customers have been interested in wireless technology for some time since there are a number of applications where wired networks are simply not practical. Now, with the IEEE 802.11n wireless standard and next year's introduction of 802.11ac, the wireless throughput is large enough to meet the needs of high-performance applications," says George Chamberlain, the President of Pleora.

The company claims that its new product offering is unique to the market in as much as its GigE Vision over wireless IP engine provides lossless, low-latency video reproduction.

"A number of industry sectors have the same kind of installation challenges that the security industry does, but with the additional demand for lossless video transmission. An example of this is in intelligent transportation systems, where cameras are mounted on gantries high above traffic and stream uncompressed video for image analysis," says John Phillips, Senior Product Manager at Pleora.

The company is currently working on customer-specific offerings for its GigE Vision over wireless video interfacing technology.
