Development engineers from leading image processing companies worldwide met under the patronage of G3 - a common organization of the three international machine vision associations EMVA, AIA and JIIA - end of October in Schongau/Germany for this years' second International Standards Meeting. Organized by vision company Sensor to Image, the experts discussed the development of the current standards used in image processing. In addition, products and their compatibility to the standards were tested during a plugfest. Says Jochem Herrmann, Director Standards in the EMVA board: "For the first time, all actively hosted interface standards of the machine vision industry, namely USB3 Vision, Camera Link HS, GigE Vision, CoaXPress and the software interface standard GenICam were present at the meeting in Schongau. This made it the largest International Standards meeting ever with 73 persons representing over 30 companies from all over the world." Herrmann emphasizes the positive atmosphere amongst the representatives who cooperated enthusiastically despite being competitors often in daily business.
