CoaXPress achieves global standardisation status

CoaXPress, the high-speed digital interface standard for imaging applications, has now become a world standard under the G3 Agreement. Following the completion of the three-month appeal period, the Automated Imaging Association (AIA) and the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) have given their support for the standard.

The completion of the three-month appeal period coincided with Automate 2011 in Chicago (21--24 March), where a number of new CoaXPress products were launched and demonstrated – cameras, frame grabbers and related products.

The Japan Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA), which hosts the standard, will shortly be announcing plans for compliance testing, including the first CoaXPress 'PlugFest' event anticipated to be held at the Image Sensing Show 2011 in Yokohama, Japan (8-10 June). This compliance programme will also manage permissions to use the CoaXPress name and logo.

The support from the AIA and EMVA follows the successful ratification of the standard, reference JIIA NIF-001-2010 - CoaXPress Standard - enacted on 6 December 2010. The specification has completed the three-month international appeal process, during which interested parties could comment on a wide range of technical and legal areas. With no major issues introduced, the AIA and EMVA both provided their support for the standard under the framework of the G3 Agreement.

'The support of the AIA and EMVA is a key milestone in ensuring CoaXPress is truly a global standard that meets the needs of system developers and their customers worldwide. We are pleased that the standardisation process has worked as intended and we can now accelerate the development of exciting new products capable of leveraging the potential of this technology,' said Tadashi Miyazaki, chair of JIIA CoaXPress Workgroup.
