A configuration of MGB parameters is done via user-friendly web interface. The user can configure various parameters, such as network settings, type of interface (GMSL 2/3, LVDS 2/3, etc.), type of video codec (H.264, Motion JPEG, RAW, etc.), properties of Area of Interest, screenshotting period, etc.
The MGB has implemented a trigger functionality. Trigger events of several sources are supported: two external GPIO inputs, a CAN bus event or the trigger button on MGB chassis. The trigger event can be set via web interface to control one of the following functionalities: MGB startup, screenshotting or video recording.
The TCP video stream supports optional visible binary timestamp embedded into video frames. Timestamp contains relative or absolute time. Time base of MGB is synchronized with NTP server. Timestamps are enabled and configured via web interface.
The MGB supports also a TCP control socket. TCP control socket is intended mainly for integration into test-automation framework. It allows run-time change of MGB parameters during performing of automated tests. TCP control socket stands as an advance alternative to user-friendly MGB configuration via web interface.
The MGB software can be easily updated by the customer. Firmware upgrade can be performed via internal memory card or via Ethernet and internal Samba network drive.
