ADLINK Technology Introduces New 1080p High-definition Frame Grabber

The HDV62 delivers uncompressed images and video streaming in the PCI Express form factor

July 1, 2010, San Jose, Calif – ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading provider of machine vision boards, announced the release of the HDV62, a PCI Express frame grabber offering uncompressed image acquisition and video streaming in full 1080p HD.

The ADLINK HDV62 provides 1920x1080p resolution, progressive scan, and noise reduction for greater image quality, as well as a wide aspect ratio that is more comfortable to the human eye. Equipped with a field programmable gate array (FPGA) and 512 MB memory buffer, the HDV62 offers the ability to stream uncompressed image to the host PC, in addition to color space conversion in real-time via on-board hardware in order to offload repetitive tasks from the host CPU.

Based on the PCI Express® x4 form factor, the HDV62 is specifically designed for medical imaging, scientific imaging, military application and high-end video surveillance system integrators by providing uncompressed video streaming up to 1920x1080p at 60 fps and lossless pixel information for both spatial and frequency domain analysis.

Real-time color space conversion, supporting RGB, YUV, and monochrome pixel output formats, is also performed on the HDV62 in real-time to facilitate applications that require different color formats for different image analysis. As this color space conversion is performed via the HDV62’s hardware, different color formats can be obtained without consuming host system resources. The HDV62 also provides various video input support from both digital and component analog video inputs for HD (high definition) or SD (standard definition) video via a 170 MHz DVI input or through RBG and YPbPr analog component inputs.

“As market demand for high definition 1920x1080p solutions has increased, major camera vendors have recently released or planning to release high definition cameras,” stated Ethan Huang, Senior Product Director at ADLINK. “With imaging applications migrating from standard definition to high definition, the HDV62 offers an effective solution combining uncompressed streaming and real-time color space conversion to fully utilize these new high definition cameras.”

Image acquisition and deployment of the HDV62 are greatly simplified through Microsoft® DirectShow, a user-friendly Windows-based application development software package which allow system developers shorten time-to-market.
