The readout timing for PL-D cameras with Sony sensors varies, depending on the camera, its selected mode of operation, and bit output. 



Normal Operating Mode


In the normal operating mode, the readout timing for the PL-D cameras with Sony sensors depends only on their bit output; Otherwise it is fixed. Readout timing for each of these cameras is summarized in the table below

Fixed Frame Rate Mode


In the special operating mode - Fixed Frame Rate mode (FFR), the readout timing for PL-D cameras with Sony sensors depends on the value of the region of interest (ROI) height parameter, and their maximum 1H period, which also changes depending on the bit output. Thus, readout timing for each camera can be calculated as follows


Readout time = ROI_height * 1H_max


Where: 1H_max for each camera is summarized in the table below
