 Also co-designing terms of GenICam standard in working group adjusted

Barcelona, Spain; June 23rd, 2022. With the release 4.0 of the EMVA 1288 standard last year also new terms of use came into force, which are now applied after a transition period of one year. Thus, the old license expired for all users on June 21, 2022. From this date on, new datasheets in which data is designated as EMVA 1288 compatible and marked with the EMVA 1288 logo may only be published if the new EMVA 1288 license has been applied for and approved by the creator of the datasheets. The usage remains free of charge under the new license. Download the new license application.

GenICam working group with new registration
Furthermore, the general conditions for participation and thus active involvement in the GenICam working group hosted by EMVA have changed, which requires a re-registration for all participating company representatives. Thus, on June 30, 2022, the old membership expires for GenICam working group members and access to the working group, its meetings and documents is only possible after a new registration with this application. The use of the GenICam logo as well as the use of the reference implementation, both available here, will remain free of charge under the new license.
