Acquire images from multiple synchronized cameras with CoaXPress
It is interesting to note that quite a number of recent computer vision applications require the acquisition from multiple synchronized cameras. The C2C-Link functionality of Euresys‘ Coaxlink cards is able to synchronize cameras connected to the same Coaxlink card, to different cards in the same PC and to different cards in distant PCs.
We are used to acquiring images from multiple parallel line-scan cameras for web inspection applications, or 3D AOI (Automated Optical Inspection), a process that requires the simultaneous acquisition of the components to be inspected from different angles. More recently, a number of 3D, AR (Augmented Reality) and VR (Virtual Reality) applications have pushed the requirements much further. Let’s mention for example volumetric video (video that exists in 3D space) and 3D motion tracking for sports and games. These applications require high-resolution, high-frame rate acquisition of video from multiple perfectly synchronized color cameras. These are requirements for which the CoaXPress interface and Euresys‘ CXP frame grabbers are particularly at ease.
