The CLV-411 Camera Link Video Splitter interfaces one Camera Link camera to up-to four frame grabbers using standard Camera Link cables. This enables the use of multiple frame grabbers for applications requiring parallel or distributed processing, camera sharing, etc. One frame grabber acts as master and provides control and communications to the camera. The remaining frame grabbers receive camera video data only. The master frame grabber is selectable and may be dynamically changed for applications requiring camera control sharing.
The CLV-411 incorporates high-speed 85 MHz interfaces and supports the Camera Link base configuration. Multiple CLV-411s may be cascaded for large parallel processing systems.
