Point Grey Congratulates AIA on Release of New USB3 Vision Standard

February 6, 2013

 

RICHMOND, BC, CANADA--Point Grey, a world-leading designer and manufacturer of innovative, high-performance digital cameras, is pleased to congratulate the Automated Imaging Association (AIA) and members of the USB3 Vision Technical Committee on the successful ratification of the new USB3 Vision standard.
 
The USB3 Vision specification is the result of many months of collaboration between some of the machine vision industry's leading technology companies. The aim of the standard is to enable interoperability between USB 3.0 imaging components such as cameras, accessories and software. Like the popular GigE vision standard, USB3 Vision will provide a framework for transmitting high-speed video and related control data.
 
"We are proud to have been part of this effort and congratulate the AIA and our fellow committee members on their hard work and dedication," says Michael Gibbons, director of sales and marketing. Gibbons adds, "Point Grey plans to support USB3 Vision in the future on our existing Flea3 and upcoming Grasshopper3 camera models via a simple firmware update. Our goal is to enable interoperability with other USB3 Vision-compliant devices and software, while also maintaining backward compatibility for Point Grey's existing customer base."
 
Version 1.0 of the USB3 Vision specification is available for download to the public for free on the AIA website: www.visiononline.org.
