Matrox RadientPro CL overview

Matrox RadientPro CL family of boards consists of two high-performance PCIe frame grabbers: Matrox RadientPro CL-SF and Matrox RadientPro CL-DB. Matrox RadientPro CL-DB supports acquisition from two Camera Link video sources in Base configuration; Matrox RadientPro CL-SF supports acquisition from one Camera Link video source in Medium, Full, or 80-bit configuration.

Matrox RadientPro CL supports frame and line-scan monochrome and color video sources. The color video sources can be RGB video sources or video sources with a Bayer color filter. Matrox RadientPro CL can decode Bayer color-encoded images and perform color space conversions while transferring the image to the Host. Besides standard Camera Link video sources, Matrox RadientPro CL also supports additional types of video sources, including some time-multiplexed video sources.

As a Matrox RadientPro CL grabs images, it can vertically or horizontally flip them. In addition, Matrox RadientPro CL can perform color-space conversions, Bayer decoding, and image subsampling.
