The new technology is a mode of operation used when transporting data across a gigabit Ethernet network. Specifically designed for GigE Vision networks, it increases the effective throughput of the GigE network, enabling cameras to transmit 100% of image information at a rate exceeding the constraints of gigabit Ethernet. The method uses image entropy based encoding to model pixel information with no loss of information. allowing a GigE Vision cameras to send pixel information at a rate in excess of 125 MB/s and speeding up line and frame rates beyond the nominal link capacity. This enables faster data transmission on the link as each pixel is comprised of fewer bits for encoding. The new mode can be turned on (or off) through a software command. It is currently available in the company's Linea line scan cameras, and will continue in future area cameras set to launch in the fall.
