Synchronising IDS GigE Vision cameras with PTP
When applications involve the processing of image material from multiple cameras, the precise time or the correct chronological sequence of the image recordings are often important for the subsequent processing.
If a time stamp is provided, a time reference to the different image data can be established. However, it is important that the time base of the cameras matches up precisely. IDS GigE Vision cameras can be synchronized easily using the "Precision Time Protocol" (PTP). Our application note "Clock Comparison" shows you in a few steps how to set up and check the synchronization.
