GenICam, GigE Vision standards update

Leading technical representatives from the machine vision industry met in Pilsen, Czech Republic, last April to discuss progress on two industry standards, GigE Vision and GenICam. The four-day session was a success with the drafting of the GenICam module: GenICam Transport Layer (GenTL), which defines image and data transfers.

Leading technical representatives from the machine vision industry met in Pilsen, Czech Republic, last April to discuss progress on two industry standards, GigE Vision and GenICam.

The four-day session was a success with the drafting of the GenICam module: GenICam Transport Layer (GenTL), which defines image and data transfers. Improvements were also introduced in the modules GenICam Application Programming Interface and Standard Features Naming Convention.

The GigE Vision committee discussed most of the open issues remaining in the new standard version 1.1, which could be ratified in the second half of 2008. Version 1.1 will bring significant improvements, while preserving backward compatibility with the original version 1.0.

GigE Vision is a standard developed through the Automated Imaging Association for the development and accessibility of automated imaging technology to a larger audience. The goal is to define a protocol of communication between compliant Ethernet-based cameras and application host hardware. GigE Vision transfers images from camera to computer. This protocol has been developed on Gigabit Ethernet technology, but will apply seamlessly to 10-Gigabit Ethernet.

GenICam, a standard developed through European Machine Vision Association, defines a universal application programming interface (API) to receive images in a machine vision application. GenICam is an abstraction of the ultimate camera interface and allows software applications to receive images from a variety of devices.
