Learn more about machine vision! In our knowledge base we are explaining key technical terms about image processing. We give you an overview to topics like 3D machine vision or the established standards like CameraLink, GigE Vision or GenICam.
The GenICam standard (GENeric Interface for CAMeras) provides generic software
interfaces for all kinds of machine vision cameras whatever their hardware
interface. The underlying interface used, for example, GigE Vision or
CameraLink, is of no relevance. New technologies such as Camera Link HS, CoaXPress, or USB3 Vision, also rely on the GenICam standard.
When designing a system, users often focus solely on the technology
required to make the acquisition work. A lot of time is spent diagnosing
why systems have intermittent failures and the answer is often to be
found in a lack of thought in the design of the interfacing hardware.
