Shaping the Scene for Vision Standardization

In response to industry requests, the EMVA and The Khronos Group joined forced in February 2021 to form an Embedded Camera API Exploratory Group, open to all at no cost, to explore industry interest in the creation of open API standards for controlling embedded cameras and sensors. All participants — currently, 60 companies, with 145 representatives — are able to discuss use cases and requirements for new interoperability standards to accelerate market growth and reduce development costs in embedded markets using vision and sensor processing and associated acceleration. All sensor and camera manufacturers, silicon vendors, and software developers working on vision and sensor processing can participate in this initiative. If the exploratory group reaches significant consensus, then EMVA and Khronos will work together to initiate the proposed standardization initiatives at the appropriate organization.

Embedded Camera API Exploratory Group Receives Positive Industry Response - 40+ Companies Have Joined the Group

The Exploratory Group is Hosted by EMVA and Khronos to explore the creation of open royalty-free API standards for controlling embedded cameras and sensors. It is open to any camera, sensor, and silicon vendors, together with system integrators and software developers with an interest in sensor processing applications.

Since its announcement in late February, the Exploratory Group membership has already grown to over 40 members, and has received a positive reception from the press:

Exploratory Group meetings start on March 25th and it is not too late to join. There is no cost, and any interested organization is welcome!

More details and instructions for joining the group are here.

Today, The Khronos® Group, an open consortium creating graphics and compute interoperability standards, and the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA), the leading European industry association dedicated to vision technology, jointly announce the formation of an Embedded Camera API Exploratory Group, open to all at no cost, to explore industry interest in the creation of open royalty-free API standards for controlling embedded cameras and sensors. All participants will be able to discuss use cases and requirements for new interoperability standards to accelerate market growth and reduce development costs in embedded markets using vision and sensor processing and associated acceleration. If the Exploratory Group reaches significant consensus then Khronos and EMVA will work to initiate the proposed standardization projects at the appropriate organizations.
