GigE Vision operates with two kinds of traffic. As per Wikipedia:
- GigE Vision Control Protocol (GVCP): Runs on the UDP protocol. The standard defines how to control and configure devices. Specifies stream channels and the mechanisms of sending image and configuration data between cameras and computers.
- GigE Vision Stream Protocol (GVSP): Runs on the UDP protocol. Covers the definition of data types and the ways images can be transferred via GigE.
GVCP uses port 3956, GVSP uses a random port between 49152 and 65535.
