The GenICam 3.0 Standard Opens Doors to 3D Cameras

With the official release of the GenICam 3.0, integrators and end users will now be able to more easily deploy 3D cameras in vision systems, as the standard provides easier integration and access to 3D machine vision technologies.

This release of the GenICam standard—which marks the first time that access to 3D cameras is standardized—provides a means for communication and image acquisition between software and a camera. It also provides a controlled exchange which applies across various camera manufacturers and interfaces (GigE, USB3, CoaXPress, Camera Link HS). In addition, proprietary transport layers can make use of the new standardized GenICam 3D interface.
