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.

Quincunx Tech Note by Sensio

SENSIO (Montreal, Canada) is pleased to announce that the technical notes for the application of the DVB-3DTV specification to the SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D format are now available for download from our website. Titled "CONFIGURATION FOR QUINCUNX SIGNALLING IN DVB-3DTV & HDMI 1.4A", the DVB-3DTV specification details the delivery system for frame compatible plano-stereoscopic 3DTV services, enabling service providers to utilize their existing HDTV infrastructures to deliver 3DTV services that are compatible with 3DTVs already in the market.

This system covers both use cases of a set-top box delivering 3DTV services to a 3DTV via an HDMI connection, and a 3DTV receiving 3D services directly via a built-in tuner and decoder, and the application notes will enable the broadcast chain to deliver SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D optimally.
