Frame grabber is an electronic device that grabs individual digital still frames from a digital video stream or an analog video signal. Nowadays, frame grabbers are present as a part of display adapters in many computers and video capturing boards but initially they were standalone cards that were attached to a computer port. Frame grabber are a compact external devices that can be used to capture video images from virtually any source. Because of its video or image processing technology, it is used as part of computer vision systems wherein storing, processing and other functions are executed. The strength of frame grabbers i.e. video interfaces are found in the applications with many cameras and high bandwidth and possibly with internal preprocessing. In other applications such as medical applications and military applications, the required data reduction or image enhancement is best handled by dedicated software of frame grabber. In the growing field of high speed and high end applications in the future it will be difficult to fulfil demand of these applications without a frame grabber.
Today frame grabbers is driving the market by meeting ever increasing image resolutions and faster frame rates common with new, high speed, high bandwidth cameras particularly in systems designed in industries such as color print inspection and flat panel inspection. They often perform functions beyond capturing a single video input and are fast and easy to install data transfer between the PC and the camera. However, high-speed communication links, such as firewire, USB, Ethernet, and the advent of multi-core processors have led many camera and vision system designers to leverage these technologies to provide more cost effective solutions that reduce the need for a frame grabber in applications where data rate is not elevated. Due to downturn followed by a trend to interface less cameras, analog frame grabber section suffers which is expected to hinder the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, frame grabbers will continue to be the vehicle to offload and allow the systems such as multi-core CPUs and higher bandwidth interconnects to handle the ever-increasing data rates and complex processing requirements, this is expected to create growth opportunities in the market.
