Board of GenICam Standard Working Group re-elected

(PresseBox) (Barcelona, ) During the GenICam Standard Working Group meeting on April 15-16, the chairs of the GenICam Working Group have been re-elected. 35 experts from more than 20 companies representing all major camera, frame grabber and software companies attended the meeting which took place in Seoul/South Korea. Fritz Dierks from Basler AG was re-elected as Chaiman; he is supported by three Vice-Chairmen, namely Christoph Zierl, MVTec Software GmbH; Rupert Stelz, Stemmer Imaging GmbH; and Stephane Maurice, Matrox Imaging (see photo below).

In the past years GenICam - a standard hosted by the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) - grew to become a very important software standard providing a generic programming interface for all kinds of cameras and in particular those using the standards GigE Vision, USB3 Vision, CoaXPress, and Camera Link HS. On the roadmap of the GenICam Standard Working are the shortly expected release of GenTL SFNC 1.0 containing the definitions of the features for the GenICam GenTL standard; and the release of the complete GenICam package 2.4 that includes also updated versions for the GenICam GenApi, GenTL, and SFNC modules. Furthermore, the Working Group will soon start to work on GenApi 3.0, mainly in order to reach faster loading of the camera XML-files. This is in particular of interest for hardware standards which stage on GenICam such as GigE Vision, CoaXPress as well as USB3 Vision.
