GigE (Gigabit Ethernet) cameras are imaging cameras that are connected to computer systems using GigE ports. They follow the GigE Vision interface standard that was mainly developed for the industrial cameras. These cameras are used in applications that require high speed and high resolution image processing as well as multiple cameras. These cameras can be deployed using standard low cost network components and long cable lengths, enabling them to be used in locations far away from a dedicated computer. Gigabit Ethernet Technology puts no restriction to the number of interfaced devices, hence allowing a large number of networked imaging cameras to effectively function within an environment. The report study includes the demand of this particular market on a global and regional scale for a five-year period of 2016-2021, both in terms of volume (Units) and revenue ($Million).
