NOVEMBER 19, 2007--The European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) has released a list of 1288 Standard compliant products with downloadable datasheets. The EMVA 1288 is a standard for characterization and publication of characterization data of image sensors and cameras targeted to machine-vision applications. It follows a unified comprehensive approach to characterize image-sensing equipment based on physical parameters. The standard has been developed by an open working group that unifies more than 20 leading component manufacturers, vision users, and research institutes.

The standard defines measurement procedures, as well as data-presentation guidelines. This is of great benefit to the user of image sensors and cameras as it allows a true datasheet-based comparison of products, as well as modeling and optimization of required image-sensor performance for a given application.

The list is open. Manufacturers that provide components characterized according to and compliant with the EMVA 1288 standard may submit a request to be included in the list toinfo@emva.org. Further information is available at www.standard1288.org.

Founded in May 2003 in Barcelona, Spain, the EMVA currently has 100 members representing 18 nations. Its aim is to promote the development and use of machine-vision technology and to support the interests of its members--machine vision companies, research institutions, and national machine vision associations. The main fields of work of the EMVA are standardization, statistics, the annual EMVA Business Conference, and other networking events, public relations, and marketing.
