The CLV-412 Camera Link Video Splitter interfaces one Camera Link camera of any configuration (base, medium, full, 80-bit) 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, recording, 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-412 incorporates high-speed 85 MHz interfaces and supports all Camera Link cameras. Multiple CLV-412s may be cascaded for large parallel processing systems.
