interesting camera, with HDMI out. In a recent project we were using cameras from XIMEA. Very recommendable. And captured both images, each 1936*1216px, up to 150fps via USB 3.1.
Frame synchronicity was very important in our case, and I can see your cameras have I/O pins but don’t know what happens along the HDMI-Capture Card path in regards to frame sync. We worked together with @kimchiandchips who wrote a custom c++ operator to handle synced frame grabbing.
Unfortunately I am not expert in capture cards, only thing that comes to mind is the idea of using a Quadro card to capture the images directly to the GPU, depends of course on what you want to do with the image later on. BlackMagic support is built in.
It’s interesting to see those models. It makes me think about my specific journey on this project.
My first guess was to use USB camera as it is cheaper and you don’t need capture card, but as you say it comes with some specific issues.
For this project I gave a shot to allied vision alvium USB camera, which are kinda the same as the Ximea. They where good, but not natively supported in TD (I had fun controlling it and multithreading in python, I writed another post on the subject, and @ItayGal had interesting feedback, and custom c++ op) : alvium USB
I’m sure with more time to developpe, USB cams may be the best solution, but (unfortunatly) we need to go fast on this project.
And we love the quality of marshall box cameras, so we ordered the expensive magewell capture card.
Hopefully it will be nice and easy regarding all aspect (framerate, reliability, plug and play).
I will post my success (or failure) here
