Choosing a BitFlow Frame Grabber

There are many BitFlow Frame Grabbers to choose from, choosing the right one for you application is easy. The most important deciding factor is the output format of the camera you are using. Beyond that, the main choices are bus format, bus bandwidth requirements, and operating system. The table below makes is easy to chose the right product.

In the table below, the columns have the following meanings:

  • Product - Command name of the frame grabber.
  • Model - Product model number.
  • Interface - Type of camera this board interfaces too. If multiple camera typs are support, this will be the "biggest". For example, and frame grabber that can accept a Full Camera Link camera, can also accept Base and Medium CL camera.
  • Max Cams - The maximum number of cameras that this board can acquire from simultaneously.
  • Bus - The computer bus that this board plugs into.
  • 64-bit OS - A "Yes" in this column means that the board is supported under 64-bit operating systems.
