View Full Version : Using 10 GigE cameras

September 1, 2015, 14:21:11
We have to develop a project where we have to use 8 DMK 23G445 cameras and 2 DMK 23GP1300 cameras so we have 10 cameras in our camera network.
Since now i have only used Fire Wire cameras.
With FireWire i have to decrement framerate if ia connect more then 1 cameras on a FireWire card!
There are problems if i connect 10 cameras an a switch and this switch is connected on one single Network card ?

As the FireWire bus, the Gigabit ethernet has also a limited bandwidth. That means, if you wan to run cameras in parallel, you must take care of the bandwidth and reduce the frame rates. Especially 10 cameras are much cameras for one switch and network. You may need to add more than one network adapter into your computer.
