With the new firmware 1.40 due to a bug all Manta models
have only 12 bit in the data path (even if the ADC
delivers 14 bit): See Figure 26: Block diagram b/w camera
on page 51 and Figure 27: Block diagram color camera on

MANTA GigE cameras
MANTA GigE cameras
Manta
This camera family has a Gigabit Ethernet interface. The Manta is a simple,
robust digital camera for industrial imaging applications that makes the
advantages of GigE Vision technology, together with AVT quality, completely
affordable.
With the Manta, Allied Vision Technologies presents a wide range of cameras
with Gigabit Ethernet interfaces.
Image applications
GigE
Allied Vision Technologies can provide users with a range of products that
meet almost all the requirements of a very wide range of image applications.
GigE is the abbreviation for Gigabit Ethernet.
All AVT Manta cameras are GigE Vision compliant cameras with Gigabit
Ethernet interface. AVT Manta cameras work with standard Gigabit Ethernet
hardware and cables and can have cable lengths up to 100 m, using conventional Cat5e network cabling.
GigE Vision standard (for Gigabit Ethernet cameras) and IEEE 1394/IIDC (for
FireWire cameras) are both the state of the art interfaces for high-performance digital cameras for machine vision and industrial applications.
Gigabit Ethernet with its data rate of 1000 Mbit/s or 1 Gbit/s is capable of
handling streaming image data and providing reliable transmission of image
data from high performance machine vision cameras such as the MANTA cameras from AVT.
GigE Vision
The GigE Vision standard is an interface standard for high-performance
machine vision cameras that is widely supported in the industrial imaging
industry. GigE (Gigabit Ethernet), on the other hand, is simply the network
structure on which GigE Vision is built.
The GigE Vision standard includes both a hardware interface standard
(Gigabit Ethernet) and standardized means of communicating with a camera
and controlling a camera.
GenICam
The GigE Vision camera control registers are based on a command structure
called GenICam which is administered through the European Machine Vision
Association (EMVA). GenICam seeks to establish a common camera control
interface so that third party software can communicate with cameras from
various manufacturers without customization. GenICam is incorporated as
part of the GigE Vision standard, so any truly GigE Vision compliant camera
also complies with GenICam. GigE Vision is analogous to FireWire's DCAM
(IIDC) and has great value for reducing system integration costs and for
improving ease of use.

Conformity
Conformity
Allied Vision Technologies declares under its sole responsibility that all standard cameras of the AVT Manta family to which this declaration relates are
in conformity with the following standard(s) or other normative document(s):
• CE, following the provisions of 2004/108/EG directive
(Manta board level cameras do not have CE)
• FCC Part 15 Class B
(Manta board level cameras: prepared for FCC Class B)
• RoHS (2002/95/EC)
CE
We declare, under our sole responsibility, that the previously described AVT
Manta cameras conform to the directives of the CE.
FCC – Class B Device
Note: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits
for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference
in a residential environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with
the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful
interference in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense. You are cautioned that any changes or modifications not expressly approved in this manual could void your authority to
operate this equipment.

The User Trigger pulse width should be at least three times
the width of the Trigger Latency as indicated in Chapter Specifications on page 14ff.
The end of Exposure will always trigger the next Readout.
The end of Exposure must always end after the current Readout.
The start of Exposure must always correspond with the Interline Time if
Readout is true.
Exposure Start Delay equals the Readout time minus the Registered
Exposure Time.
MANTA Technical Manual V3.0.0

Triggering during
the Idle State
For applications requiring the shortest possible Trigger Latency and the
smallest possible Trigger Jitter the User Trigger signal should be applied
when Imaging is false and Idle is true.
In this case, Trigger Latency and Trigger Jitter are as indicated in Chapter
Specifications on page 14ff.
Triggering during the Readout State
For applications requiring the fastest triggering cycle time whereby the camera image sensor is exposing and reading out simultaneously, then the User
Trigger signal should be applied as soon as a valid Trigger Ready is detected.
In this case, Trigger Latency and Trigger Jitter can be up to 1 line time since
Exposure must always begin on an Interline boundary.

Description of the data path
Frame memory
An image is normally captured and transported in consecutive steps. The
image is taken, read out from the sensor, digitized and sent over the Gigabit
Ethernet network.
Manta cameras are equipped with 32 MByte of RAM. The table below shows
how many frames can be stored by each model.
Note

The number of frames (StreamHoldCapacity) depends on resolution and pixel format. Listed number of frames is typical
for full resolution and Mono8/Bayer8.
The memory operates according to the FIFO (first in, first out) principle. This
makes addressing for individual images unnecessary.

Description of the data path
Color interpolation (BAYER demosaicing)
The color sensors capture the color information via so-called primary color
(R-G-B) filters placed over the individual pixels in a BAYER mosaic layout.
An effective BAYER  RGB color interpolation already takes place in all
Manta color version cameras.
In color interpolation a red, green or blue value is determined for each pixel.
An AVT proprietary BAYER demosaicing algorithm is used for this interpolation (2x2), optimized for both sharpness of contours as well as reduction of
false edge coloring.
x
Figure 28: BAYER demosaicing (example of 2x2 matrix)
Color processing can be bypassed by using so-called RAW image transfer.
RAW mode is primarily used to
• save bandwidths on the Gigabit Ethernet network
• achieve higher frame rates
• use different BAYER demosaicing algorithms on the PC
– for Manta the first pixel of the sensor is RED
Note

If the PC does not perform BAYER to RGB post-processing, the
b/w image will be superimposed with a checkerboard pattern.
MANTA Technical Manual V3.0.0

Description of the data path
In color interpolation a red, green or blue value is determined for each pixel
(P1= first pixel; P2= second pixel; etc). Only two lines are needed for this
interpolation:

Formula 1: BAYER demosaicing
Note
•

•
Please note that on the color camera, a wrongly colored
border of one or two pixel wide forms on the left and
right image borders. This is also a consequence of
BAYER demosaicing as the image width displayed on the
color camera is not scaled down.
Using ROI, x and y resolutions must be even-numbered.
