(PresseBox) ( Palleja - Barcelona, )
The GenICam standard group has released GenApi 3.0, a new version of the reference implementation to the GenICam standard. This new major release is a complete re-implementation and bears key advantages to the previous version. GenApi 3.0 enables to load and interpret the camera description file several times faster and has a much smaller memory footprint than the previous version. In addition, more platforms are now supported, in particular regarding the ARM architecture.

All these improvements make the standard in particular interesting for the embedded use case while at the same time the new release is still based on the GenApi standard 2.0 and therefore downward compatible.

The new GenApi reference implementation is the result of three years’ work of the GenICam standard group where all major industrial camera and software manufacturers jointly cooperate. It will thus be quickly used by all machine vision device and host manufacturers. GenApi 3.0 can be downloaded on the website of the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) which hosts the GenICam standard through the following weblink:
