Genie Nano Multicast with CVB

 

Teledyne Dalsa Genie Nano cameras and Common Vision Blox support Multicast.  With Multicast, it is possible to send packets to many recipients in the same network.

In IPv4, the address range from 224.0.0.0 to 239.255.255.255 is reserved for Multicast.

The configuration can be done using the GenTL or the CVB GenICam driver.

Combined with the feature Turbodrive, which is supported by all Genie Nano cameras, the configuration has to be done with the CVB GenICam driver, because the Turbodrive feature is implemented in the driver.
