The Japan Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA) and the 1394 Trade Association have announced a new agreement under which they will cooperate on developing standards for the machine vision market.
The groups are currently involved in standardizing the IIDC2 specification based on the new agreement. IIDC2 is a new next-generation camera control protocol based on IIDC and designed to general application and future expandability.
The JIIA-1394 TA standardizing activity started in July 2008. IIDC has been standardized by the 1394 Trade Association and is now widely used in the IEEE1394 (FireWire) interface digital camera integrated in industrial applications. IIDC2 will be useful for IEEE1394 and also existing interfaces and new/future interfaces, such as CoaXPress. The IIDC2 version is expected to be widely adopted in the machine vision market, and will be demonstrated at VISION 2011 (Booth 6E11) in Stuttgart, Germany, Nov. 8-10.
