The award was presented by Michael Cyros, AIA's president and president of Allied Vision Technologies, and recognises Hori's direct contribution to the development and establishment of the Camera Link and GigE Vision standards for the AIA and also for his continuing leadership in the industry.

In presenting the award, AIA managing director, Dana Whalls, expressed her appreciation for Hori's contributions and leadership to the industry. 'He has been so dedicated to the global standards process and has really helped the machine vision industry embrace both Camera Link and GigE Vision,' she said. Jeff Burnstein, executive vice president of the Automated Technologies Council, AIA's parent group, remarked that without Hori's commitment and insight, AIA never would have been so deeply involved with standards development activities.

Hori is the founder, president of Gevicam and is well known in the machine vision industry worldwide. He founded Pulnix America in 1982 and devoted his career to corporate management and to camera design and development. He is highly regarded as a visionary in the automated imaging industry.
