The CoaXPress standard defines a cost effective and easy interfacing between video devices and acquisition hardware over RG59 and RG6 coaxial cables. It enables hot-plug of devices and 24V power-over-cable with up to 13 Watts per cable.
A CoaXPress Device can support multiple cameras of many video stream formats. CoaXPress supports GenICam international standard, providing a generic programming interface for all kinds of cameras regardless of the interface technology.
Video streams are sent to a host at a selectable high-speed downlink connection rate from 1.25 Gbps to 6.25 Gbps per cable. Each device can transfer video streams over one or multiple cable connections; a quad-connection device can deliver a total throughput of 25 Gbps.
CoaXPress devices and cameras can be controlled from a host through the uplink connection at 20.83 Mbps. The CoaXPress standard also provides a low latency, accurate trigger interface between the devices and the host.
A CoaXPress Host can interface with one or more camera devices, each of one or multiple cables. The CoaXPress standard supports up to 256 video streams.
