GenICam™ 2.2 Standard Released

Latest release of standard p
rovides Mac OS X support


First established in 2006, the
GenICam
™ standard continues to release
enhancements in response to an ever
-
growing user
-
base. “The release of GenICam
2.2 and its supp
ort for the Mac OS X,” notes Dr. Fritz Dierks, chair of the GenICam
committee, “is a prime example of how our technical committee is responding to user
interest and demand.”


With this latest release, the GenICam standard now provides support for all majo
r
operating systems: Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. “With GenICam being used
more widely,” says Dr. Dierks, “we were bound to see its adoption under the

Mac OS X. I think this will open up the door for an entirely new segment of GenICam
users.”


One such t
ype of user is the academic researcher. "Researchers worldwide rely
heavily on our products to accelerate the pace of discovery, innovation, and
development," says Alan Hwang, a product manager at MathWorks. "Since Macs are
used frequently in scientific re
search, we hope to broaden the use of GenICam
among research communities by being a major contributor in this latest release."

About GenICam

The goal of the GenICam standard is to provide a generic programming interface for
all kinds of cameras. No matt
er what interface technology (GigE Vision, Camera Link,
1394 DCAM, USB, etc.) is being used or what features are implemented, the
application programming interface (API) should be always the same.

The GenICam standard is hosted by the
European Machine Vision Association
(EMVA)
. Today, more than 90 companies from all over the worl
d are part of the
GenICam

initiative. More information about the GenICam 2.2 standard is available at
www.genicam.org
