Allied Vision Technologies
Leading in the world of digital cameras
Founded in 1989, Allied Vision Technologies (AVT) has established
itself as a worldwide leading manufacturer of digital cameras for
a large variety of machine vision applications including industrial
inspection, medical and scientific imaging, logistics, security
and traffic surveillance and even multimedia and interactive
entertainment.
The AVT Advantage
•
•
•
•
•
•
AVT is your trusted partner since 1989
Represented in more than 30 countries
The largest choice of FireWire and GigE Vision cameras
High-quality engineering and manufacturing
Modular concept/OEM cameras
Excellent customer service
AVT’s camera portfolio
AVT offers one of the largest camera portfolios with both leading
digital camera interfaces: FireWire (IEEE 1394) and Gigabit Ethernet
(GigE Vision®). More than ten camera families provide a very wide
selection of imaging options:
• Monochrome, color or near infrared (NIR) sensitive
• High-quality sensors with a wide choice of resolutions from VGA
(0.3 Megapixels) up to 16 Megapixels.
• Fast image transmission with up to 200 frames per second (VGA)
• Various form factors including ultra-compact housings, board
level versions and periscope-type architecture
• Rich set of AVT Smart Features for image and camera performance
optimization
Allied Vision Technologies is also recognized in the market as the
expert for flexible camera customization for special requirements.
Thanks to the AVT Modular Concept, a wide range of modifications
such as angled heads, medical housings or alternative cable outlets
are available “à la carte” for many camera families. AVT also owns a
strong expertise in specific OEM camera development.
AVT cameras come with powerful software development kits (SDKs)
that ensure optimal performance and an easy implementation with
the most popular operating systems and third party libraries.
FireWire and GigE
Gigabit Ethernet, also called GigE, is a network standard that
has very high bandwidth and allows for very long cable lengths
(up to 100 m with Cat5e standard cables and even more using
fiber optics). It offers a low cost interface that is widely used in
standard computer networking hardware. With the new Prosilica
GX, a sustained maximum data rate of 240 MB/s is possible.
FireWire, or IEEE 1394, provides high-speed, deterministic data
transmission. AVT‘s FireWire cameras offer many more real-time
functions (Smart Features) than specified in the IIDC standards
– they can even emulate traditional Frame Grabber functions.
One of the main advantages of GigE Vision and FireWire is
their standardized camera communication protocol. Both GigE
Vision and FireWire provide a plug & play interface standard.
AVT‘s GigE cameras are GigE Vision 1.2 and Genicam compliant.
AVT‘s FireWire cameras are compliant to the IIDC (former DCAM)
standard and can easily be integrated into your application.

LAG GigE interface and
lens control port
“The Prosilica GX, with its double-speed GigE interface, is the first
GigE Vision camera to feature LAG technology. Additional features
include 3-axis motorized lens control as well as video-type autoiris controls.”
LAG = Link Aggregation Group (IEEE 802.3ad)
The LAG technology has been used in IT networking for years
and is supported by a wide range of standard Ethernet hardware
(switches, interface cards, etc.).
When the camera is connected by two cables to the host
computer, it sees the camera as one connection at twice the
normal speed (240 MB/s). The Prosilica GX can also operate
using a single standard CAT-5e Ethernet cable at 120 MB/s.

The AVT Modular Concept
In addition to a comprehensive selection of standard cameras,
Allied Vision Technologies also offers customized cameras. Many
customizing requirements can be covered by the Modular Concept.
It provides a list of options to change the camera‘s form factor and
optical filters. The Modular Concept is available for all AVT cameras.
Each camera family offers different modular options.
Using the options of the Modular Concept is beneficial because it:
• Avoids customizing effort
• Permits immediate orders
• Leads to quick delivery times
• Offers transparent pricing

The Modular Concept for Stingray cameras (see above) offers the most options.
Each camera family offers different modular options.
Optional: GOF ports for Stingray and Pike cameras
Stingray and Pike cameras are optionally available with a GOF
(glass optical fiber) port. GOF cables have been used in the
broadcast industry for decades, since they reliably transmit even
high-resolution video signals over long distances. Allied Vision
Technologies offers GOF cables that meet industrial standards and
sustain considerable mechanical stress.
Advantages of GOF:
• 800 Mbit/s over 400 meters and more
• No additional repeaters required
• Transmission of light instead of electricity:
No ground problems, no interference with electromagnetic
fields

Third-Party Solutions
AVT‘s FireWire cameras can easily be integrated into any third-party
vision software solution that supports the IIDC standard.
The GigE Vision cameras conform to the AIA GigE Vision standard
and are compatible with all GigE Vision-compliant software solutions.
What‘s this guide about?
When a camera is to be connected to a PC, one has to ask “how?”
before resolution or camera features can even be looked at. How
do parameters get into the camera? How is the camera started?
How do the images get into the PC? How do you plan to process the
images?
There is a wide range of third-party software solutions compatible
with AVT’s FireWire and GigE cameras, such as libraries, SDKs,
integrated development environments, vision applications and
tools, and drivers. Allied Vision Technologies works in close
cooperation with its certified partners to assure AVT camera users
tested compatibility, easy installation, and strong support.
AVT offers several software packages and library interfaces which
help the user to develop powerful applications quickly and easily.
This interactive guide will help you to find the right AVT package for
integrating AVT cameras into your application.

Among others, it is also possible to
show all cameras within a resolution
range (e.g. 3 to 6 Megapixels), or to
display all available cameras with a
type 2/3 sensor.
Additionally, all of your preferred
searching criteria may be combined
as requested.
