Geoff Roddick, the application engineering manager of Pleora Technologies, (Ottawa, Canada) is taking on the role of Vice-Chair of the GigE Vision technical committee.

The appointment was confirmed by the GigE Vision technical committee last week during The Vision Show held in Boston, MA, USA. The committee comprises dedicated industry representatives that are responsible for developing and maintaining the standard.

The Automated Imaging Association (AIA; Ann Arbor, MI, USA), the world’s largest machine vision trade association, oversees the ongoing development and administration of the standard. Originally initiated by a group of 10 companies, the committee behind the standard has since grown to include more than 50 members.

As manager of Pleora’s application engineering group, Roddick has hands-on experience in the execution of a wide breadth of video-over-Ethernet applications. He holds a BSc in Electrical Engineering from Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada.

A two part series entitled “Standard Gives Machine Vision Systems a New Image” details the technical specifications of the GigE standard, available on the Vision Systems Design web site.
