MÜNSTER, GERMANY, September 24, 2012


XIMEA's xiQ USB 3.0 industrial camera visited recent Vision Standards Technical Committee Meeting hosted by AIA and EMVA in Dresden, Germany. During the plugfest, xiQ camera successfully communicated with three USB 3.0 - compatible image processing libraries: National Instrument's LabVIEW, Matrix Vision's mvIMPACT, and Basler's Pylon driver package.


More than 20 leading machine vision companies participated in the Vision Standards Technical Committee Meeting to make comments on the new USB3 Vision™ standard, which is expected to be released by the end of 2012, as well as GigE Vision® 2.0 and GenICam™ standards.


"While we don't have a final USB 3 Vision™ standard yet, our ability to communicate with three software programs at the plugfest is strong evidence that XIMEA's xiQ series of industrial cameras will be USB3 Vision™ compatible when AIA release the final standard," says Klimkovic, co-CEO of XIMEA Gmbh (Münster, Germany).


"We're very pleased with both the progress of the standard, as well as our hardware design compatibility with major software implementations of the USB 3.0 ecosystem," adds Klimkovic. "We were also able to preview Windows 8 against the proposed USB3 Vision™ standard. XIMEA strives to offer cutting-edge machine vision hardware that is built to the latest standards and compatible with all major commercial image processing programs."


The North American and European machine vision trade associations, AIA and EMVA, respectively, co-host two Vision Standards Technical Committee Meetings each year. Following the official release of the USB3 Vision™ standard, participants are looking forward to the next Vision Standards Technical Committee Meeting, which is expected to be held sometime next spring.
