The Gidel InfiniVision™ provides flexible infrastructure for acquisition and processing from multiple cameras/sensors simultaneously. The system can capture data streams of varying frame data size and can synchronize between up to 100 cameras/sensors. Camera interfaces currently offered by Gidel include CoaXPress, Camera Link, and MIPI, as well as an option for customizing the camera/sensor interface and protocol. The acquisition path allows for adding data processing blocks such as Image Signal Processing (ISP) and compression.
InfiniVision can capture multiple image streams in two ways:
In both cases, InfiniVision will build a full coherent image based on multiple synchronized images. The synchronization mechanism automatically re-synchronizes data streams that may have been momentarily interrupted.
InfiniVision’s ability to grab on-the-fly incoming data of any size adds another dimension of flexibility, enabling imaging applications to combine images of various sizes arriving, for example, from different camera types or from selective ROIs of variable sizes. In this way, InfiniVision provides flexibility in both time progression and special resolution. Moreover, it is possible to combine incoming data with historical data or other peripheral data to construct multi-dimensional image mapping.
