'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.
