Vivid Engineering CameraLink Simulator


The Vivid Engineering CameraLink Simulator is an affordable high-performance video test pattern generator supporting all CameraLink configurations (base, medium, full, 72-bit, 80-bit). The CLS-221 supports all CameraLink video formats including those introduced in the new CameraLink v2.1 specification. Fully programmable video timing enables the CLS-221 to mimic the characteristics of almost any camera. New features include enhanced timing performance, bayer color support, and col-or bar & pseudo-random video patterns. Control is via an RS-232 port, USB, or frame grabber comm port. The CLS-221 also supports the AIA validation test pattern. The CLS-221 connects to devices with the larger MDR connector via standard cables, and to devices with the smaller SDR/HDR connector via adapting cables. The Vivid Engineering CameraLink simulator is very useful for the development and test of CameraLink components and systems and is easy to use with included quick-configuration software.
