8 4 About this Guide
9 About GEVPlayer 5 Introduction Installing GEVPlayer GEVPlayer, part of the Pleora Technologies ebus SDK, is a sample application that allows you to control the parameters of GigE Vision devices by providing access to the GenICam-compliant XML files built into all GigE Vision-compliant devices. The XML file provides access to the GigE Vision device features, which are controlled with the GenICam API, and a GenICam node map. GEVPlayer allows you to save GenICam XML information retrieved from a device; you can also load the saved GenICam XML file information to a device. Not just a controller, GEVPlayer also receives and allows you to view streaming data. While viewing the image data, you can use GEVPlayer to adjust the image color and white balance, and save images and device configuration settings. You can use the debugging tools in GEVPlayer to determine the optimal settings for your system. As you become more familiar with GigE Vision and GenICam, you can continue to control your GigE Vision devices using GEVPlayer, or you can build your own software application using the ebus SDK. NOTE! Ensure that you have installed version 2.0 or higher of the ebus SDK (formerly called the ebus PureGEV SDK suite) with GEVPlayer on the PC or laptop. The GEVPlayer application is installed with the ebus SDK. Follow the standard installation instructions to install the ebus SDK on your PC. NOTE! If you do not have the CD, you can access installation files from the Pleora Resource Center at System Requirements Ensure the computer or laptop on which you install the ebus SDK, meets the following recommended requirements: A 32 bit or 64 bit (or higher) processor At least one Gigabit Ethernet NIC One of the following operating systems: Microsoft Windows 7, 32 bit or 64 bit Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 3 or higher 32 bit or 64 bit Microsoft Windows Vista, SP 3 or higher, 32 bit or 64 bit Red Hat Enterprise Linux bit or 64 bit OpenSUSE NOTE! If you use the Linux operating, you must run the installation software as Root. NOTE! The instructions included in this document are based on the assumption that GEVPlayer is installed on a Windows operating system. Instructions may vary depending on the exact UI configuration of your Windows OS installation.

13 Configuring Firewalls 9 Introduction Some third-party GigE Vision devices do not support the optional features introduced in version 1.1 and above of the GigE Vision standard that ensure compatibility with firewalls. This restriction requires you to disable the PC firewall to properly use devices not supporting the optional features. This section provides you with instructions for disabling the firewall in the Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 operating systems. NOTE! For more detailed information about how firewalls function, including how firewalls can affect GigEVision devices, see the Pleora Technologies Technical Note, Correcting Firewall Issues with 3rd Party GigE Vision Devices available on the Pleora Resource Center at Pleora IP Engine Devices Support Firewall Compatibility Features Pleora GigE Vision devices support the firewall compatibility features introduced in versions 1.1 and above of the GigE Vision standard. These features allow devices to report the device-side UDP ports they use for streaming and messaging channels. This reporting feature allows the SDK to know exactly where to send the packets used to keep the firewall open. The ebus SDK operates correctly with Windows firewalls when used with Pleora GigE Vision devices. You should not have to lower the firewall or take any specific action. GigE Vision 1.0 GigE Vision 1.0 does not provide any standard device-side UDP port side reporting mechanism. However, because Pleora developed both the ebus SDK and the iport IP Engines, the device-side UDP port numbers used by the IP engines are known to the SDK. When the ebus SDK is used with a Pleora IP Engine, it knows where to send the packets to keep the firewall open. For streaming, the device uses port channel number. The streaming channel 0 (first, default) uses port For the messaging channel, the device uses port 4. Third-Party Devices As mentioned preciously, version 1.1 of the GigE Vision standard added optional features allowing devices to report which device-side UDP port is used for streaming each available streaming channel, and for the messaging channel. This mechanism allows the ebus SDK to know exactly where to send the packet used to keep the firewall open. It is important to understand that this GigE Vision 1.1 feature is optional. Not all third-party devices support it, even if they report using GigE Vision 1.1, or above. If your third-party devices support the firewall compatibility features, your system should work without having to disable the firewall. If your third-party devices do not support the firewall compatibility features, the firewall needs to be deactivated in order for your system to stream, or use the messaging channel.
14 10 Configuring Firewalls Disabling the Windows Vista and Windows 7 Firewall This section provides you with the steps to take to disable the Windows Vista and Windows 7 Firewall. In both the Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems, you can control the firewall setting for domain networks (corporate); home or private networks (behind a secured router, such as a home or SOHO network); or, a public network. We recommend that you do not deactivate the firewall on a public network; for example, a wireless access point at a coffee house, or hotel. If you are on a corporate or home network, but Windows behaves as if you are on a public network, you might need to set the correct type of network used by your NIC. To set your network type: 1. Click Start / Control Panel. 2. Click Network and Internet. 3. Click Network and Sharing Center. 4. Adjust the network settings. 5. Close the Control Panel. To disable the Windows Vista and Windows 7 Firewall: 1. Click Start / Control Panel. 2. Click System and Security. 3. Click Windows Firewall. 4. In the Control Panel Home, click Turn Windows Firewall On or Off. 5. Select Turn Off Windows Firewall for the appropriate network locations. 6. Close the Control Panel. Disabling the Windows XP Firewall Unlike the Windows Vista or Windows 7 operating systems, Windows XP does not allow you to configure the firewall for different types of networks. There is only one master control. To disable the Windows XP Firewall: 1. Click Start / Control Panel. 2. Click Windows Firewall. 3. On the General tab, click Off. 4. Click OK.
15 Controlling GigE Vision Devices 11 Introduction After you have assembled and powered up the GigE Vision compliant devices in your video network system, you can connect to and adjust the settings of the devices using the GEVPlayer application. Connecting to GigE Vision Devices It is important for GEVPlayer to be installed on a PC or laptop that is connected to the same subnet as the GigE Vision device to which you want to connect. If GEVPlayer and the GigE Vision device are not on the same subnet, the device might not appear within the GEVPlayer application. To connect to a GigE Vision device: 1. Click Start / All Programs / Pleora Technologies Inc / ebus SDK / GEVPlayer. 2. In the Connection pane, click Select / Connect 3. Click to select the GigE Vision device in the Available GigE Vision Devices window. 4. Click OK.
16 12 Controlling GigE Vision Devices Locating Unreachable Devices If your device does not appear in the Available GigE Vision Devices list, possibly because the device IP configuration, and IP configuration of the GEVPlayer PC NIC are not on the same subnet, you can locate the device by clicking Show unreachable GigE Vision Devices, as shown in the image below: Configuring a Valid IP Address If the GigE Vision device does not have a valid IP address, an error message appears, as shown in the image below:
17 13 To configure a valid IP address: NOTE! This procedure allows you to set a valid IP address, but not a persistent IP address for the GigE Vision device. See To configure a persistent IP address: if you want the IP address to be permanently used on the GigE Vision device. 1. Start GEVPlayer and click Select / Connect. 2. Click to select the GigE Vision device in the Available GigE Vision Devices window. 3. Click Set IP Address in the bottom left corner. 4. In the Set IP Address box, enter a valid IP address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway. The red exclamation mark disappears if the IP address is valid. 5. Click OK. Configuring a Persistent IP Address By default, IP engines are configured to automatically acquire an IP address using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Link Local Addresses (LLA), provided no persistent IP address has been assigned. This allows you to immediately connect to the IP engine at first-time deployment, and then, if you choose to, provide it with a persistent IP address. If you provide the IP engine with a persistent IP address, it will use this persistent IP address each time it is powered up and connected to the network. NOTE! The IP engine can use the persistent IP address each time it is powered up as long as the IP address is valid and there were no IP address conflicts at the time the IP address was configured. To configure a persistent IP address: 1. Start GEVPlayer and click Select / Connect. 2. Click to select the IP engine in the Available GigE Vision Devices window. 3. Click OK in the bottom right corner. 4. Click GEV Device control in the Parameters and Controls section. 5. In the TransportLayerControl section of the GEV Device Control dialog box, enter a subnet mask in the GevPersistentSubnetMask box. 6. Enter a default gateway in the GevPersistentDefaultGateway box. NOTE! The subnet gateway value can remain at 0.
18 14 Controlling GigE Vision Devices 7. Click in the GEVCurrentIPConfigurationPersistentIP box and select True. 8. Enter the persistent IP address in the GEVPersistentIPAddress box. 9. Close the GEV Device Control dialog box. NOTE! The IP engine uses the persistent IP address first, but if this option if set to False, it uses the IP address provided by DHCP next, and if this fails, uses LLA to find an available IP address. LLA cannot be disabled and is True by default.
19 15 Acquiring Images Adjusting Images Saving Images The Acquisition Control panel lets you access the features that control how you acquire images. The GigE Vision Standard requires that your GigE Vision compliant transmitter start up in a state ready to send images. You can acquire images even if you don t have a camera Pleora iport IP engines send a sawtooth-shaped test pattern by default. To acquire images: 1. Start GEVPlayer and click Select / Connect. 2. In the Acquisition Control section of the Connection pane, select your preferred Mode and Channel. For continuous images, select Continuous and Data Channel #0. For other acquisition modes, see Understanding Acquisition Modes on page Click Play. The images appear in the Display pane. GEVPlayer provides you with tools to adjust your images.

ContinuousRecording This mode allows you to save images to the IP engine s onboard memory until the memory is full. SingleFrameReadout This mode allows you to acquire a single image from the IP engine s onboard memory. SingleFrameRecording This mode allows you to save a single image to the IP engine s onboard memory.
21 17 Configuring GEVPlayer s Role The first time you start GEVPlayer and connect to an IP engine, the following GEVPlayer role error message may appear: By default, GEVPlayer acts as a controller and data receiver. However, when connecting to some IP engines, such as the Pleora vdisplay IP engine, GEVPlayer must be configured as a controller only and not as a data receiver. The vdisplay IP engine transmits video data to a display monitor only and not to the GigE Vision network. The GEVPlayer roles are configured in the Setup dialog, shown in the image below: To access the Setup dialog: Start GEVPlayer and select Tools / Setup. Table 4: GEVPlayer Roles Role Controller and data receiver Controller Description Select this role if you are using GEVPlayer to connect to and control a GigE Vision-compliant transmitter device AND if you want GEVPlayer to receive streaming video from the device. Select this role if you are using GEVPlayer to connect to and control a GigE Vision-compliant device. GEVPlayer does not receive streaming video from the device if this option is selected.

You cannot control the device if this option is selected. Select this role if you are using GEVPlayer to view the parameters and settings of a GigE Vision-compliant device. You cannot make any changes to the device parameters or view video if this option is selected. Configuring the Stream Destination, Unicast or Multicast The Stream Destination pane is located beside the GEVPlayer Role pane and provides options that allow you to configure GigE Vision-compliant video sources to operate in either a unicast or multicast video network configuration. Table 5: Stream Destination Options Option Unicast, automatic Unicast, specific local port Unicast, other destination Multicast Description Select this option to configure the camera to stream video directly to the GEVPlayer PC using an automaticallyselected port. Select this option to configure the camera to stream video directly to a user-defined port on the GEVPlayer PC. Select this option to configure the camera to stream video directly to a PC or a vdisplay IP engine (a destination other than the GEVPlayer PC). Select this option to configure the camera to join a multicast group (specified by the IP address and port), and to begin streaming to that group. The vdisplay IP engine, or any other receiver such as a PC, must be configured to receive streaming video at the same multicast address. If GEVPlayer is configured as a multicast receiver, it allows you to view video from the camera streaming video to the same multicast address. Understanding GEVPlayer Control Dialog Boxes The features of the IP engine are parameter based. By changing the values of controls in the GEVPlayer control dialog boxes, you can affect how the IP engine performs. GEVPlayer breaks system configuration into the following three categories and provides a set of controls for each category in a separate dialog box: Communication Control dialog box: Controls connection and communication settings between host PC and IP engine. GEV Device Control dialog box: Controls all device settings including transport layer settings; image processing settings; image mode and formatting settings; display timing settings; channel settings; autonomous control settings; and messaging settings.
