Transmit video frame
Video / Video Utilities
The Image Transmit block sends the video frame from one computer to another computer. The computers can be two target computers or one development computer and one target computer. Specify the destination computer by IPv4 address-and-port pair.
Data— Video data to transmit
Byte vector containing video data for the block to transmit.
Length— Number of bytes of video data
Number of bytes to transmit.
This input is available when you select the Allow variable length packets check box.
IP address sent to (255.255.255.255 for broadcast)— Computer IP address
Specify the IPv4 address of the computer to which you send the video
frames. To broadcast the video frames to
255.255.255.255. The Remote IP
port to send to parameter specifies the port for the
Remote IP port to send to— Computer port
Specify the computer port to which you send the video frames. The IP address sent to (255.255.255.255 for broadcast) parameter specifies the IP address for the destination.
Use the following local IP port (-1 for automatic port assignment)— Local computer port
Specify the computer port from which to send the video frames.
To assign automatically a port for the computer, enter
Allow variable length packets— Transmit variable-length frames
Select this check box to enable the transmission of variable-length frames. For example, use this option for compressed frames because the length of each frame varies.
If you select this check box, the
Data port sends the
actual data. The
Length input port sends the number of
bytes being transmitted. If the port size is less than
Length, the block sends up to the port size.
If this check box is not selected (default), the block sends only fixed-length packets.
Selecting this parameter displays the Length output port.
