GenICam version 2.2 has been released, which provides Mac OS X support. First established in 2006 and hosted by the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA), the GenICam standard provides a generic programming interface for all kinds of cameras no matter what interface technology is used.

'The release of GenICam 2.2 and its support for the Mac OS X,' commented 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 major operating systems: Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. 'With GenICam being used more widely, 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,' Dr Dierks continued.

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