CoaXPress Standard to use GenICam modules

On June 30 and July 01, 2011, the first combined meeting of the GenICam and CoaXPress working groups took place in Munich, Germany

(PresseBox) (Frankfurt am Main, ) The goal of the meeting was to increase the integration of the CoaXPress and GenICam standards in order to ensure easy application of the standards by the user.

The CoaXPress Standard, which is hosted by the Japan Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA), is a high-speed point-to-point serial communication standard for the transmission of video and still images, scalable over single or multiple coaxial cables. The GenICam Standard, hosted by the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA), is a generic programming interface for cameras to decouple interface technology from application programming interfaces.

CoaXPress already mandates the use of GenTL, the transport layer interface of GenICam, grabbing images from the camera and moving them to the user's application. However, details for the integration of the GenICam standard into CoaXPress needed to be discussed in a face-to-face meeting with greater detail. Moreover, potential changes were argued which are necessary for a further integration of GenICam and CoaXPress. One important outcome of the meeting was the use of the GenICam SNFC (Standard Naming Feature Convention) by CoaXPress which will lead to further standardization and simplification.

The next GenICam working group meeting will be held in fall 2011 in Austin, Texas.

Participants from around the world joint the first GenICam/CoaXPress meeting at the MVTec headquarters (left to right): Jean-Philippe Arnaud (Active Silicon), Roman Wagner (Sensor-to-Image), Masahide Matsubara (Aval Data), Chris Beynon (Active Silicon), Ivonne Puhlmann (MVTec), Sjors van der Steen (Adimec), Thomas Hopfner (MVTec), Dr. Friedrich Dierks (Basler), Noriaki Tadokoro (Toshiba Teli), Rupert Stelz (STEMMER IMAGING), Werner Feith (Sensor-to-Image)

European Machine Vision Association

Founded in May 2003 in Barcelona, the European Machine Vision Association currently has 124 members representing 22 nations. Its aim is to promote the development and use of machine vision technology and to support the interests of its members - machine vision companies, research institutions and national machine vision associations. The main fields of work of EMVA are: standardization, statistics, the annual EMVA Business Conference and other networking events, European research funding, public relations and marketing.
