12-megapixel 330 fps ‘Direct to Disk’


R&D Vision is upgrading its HIRIS software and integrating state-of-the-art components to reach a data rate exceeding 4 GB/s. Based on a universal driver compatible with more than 300 cameras, HIRIS is a versatile, scalable tool that consumes few resources.

R&D Vision integrated the VC-12MX2-CXP camera, the latest camera from VIEWORKS, which has a 12-megapixel resolution for a frame rate of 330 frames per second, i.e. a total rate of nearly 4 GB/s. This throughput requires eight CoaXPress CXP-6 outputs and therefore an acquisition cardframe grabber with the same number of inputs on the PC. On this basis, R&D Vision opted for the Euresysis Coaxlink Octo acquisition card.

The R&D Vision teams developed and validated a new acquisition station that has unprecedented levels of performance in terms of RAM image acquisition rates and, above all, ‘Direct to Disk’ image acquisition rates that exceed 4 GB/s and have acquisition times of approximately 30 minutes.

Without revealing our trade secrets, take a 64-bit architecture with a multi-core processor that is optimised to manage multiple PCIe devices, combine it with some ultra-fast high capacity SSDs and the latest version of our HIRIS software, and you’ll have a system that can control the speeds of the fastest cameras on the market. This architecture is primed and optimised to support GPUs to run image processing algorithms that use Deep Learning.

With this new HIRIS software version, R&D Vision offers you a powerful, multi-purpose and scalable tool that is fully suited to all your image processing and acquisition needs.
