The Japan Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA), host of the CoaXPress high-speed digital interface standard for imaging applications, announced that the first edition of the standard has been approved by its Working Group as a JIIA standard for public release.

In addition, the AIA/EMVA CoaXPress Liaison Group, which consists of members from the Automated Imaging Association, USA (AIA) and the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA), have also given their approval, paving the way for global adoption in early 2011. Representatives from both groups voted on the standard during the past month and the results were released in December 2010, showing a total of 31 votes in favor, none opposed and two abstentions.

JIIA also announced the launch of a compliance test procedure to test and approve CoaXPress devices as officially compliant products. This compliance program will also manage permission to use the CoaXPress name and logo. Additional details of how this process will work will be announced in Q1 11.

Following this ratification of the standard, reference JIIA NIF-001-2010 - CoaXPress Standard - Enacted on Dec. 6, 2010 - First Edition, the CoaXPress specification will now go through a three-month international appeal process, during which interested parties can comment on a wide range of technical and legal areas. The result of this process, which has been agreed upon by JIIA and the two other major industry organizationsthe AIA and the EMVAwill be announced at Automate 2011 in Chicago and will pave the way for CoaXPress to become an international standard.

"We are well on our way to making CoaXPress a global and widely adopted standard for high-speed digital image data transmission," said Tadashi Miyazaki, chair of the JIIA CoaXPress Workgroup. "The voting results demonstrate the universal approval for the technical validity of the approach, as well as the support for a next-generation method for enabling flexible, high-speed connectivity between the components of imaging systems, including multiple cameras, frame grabbers and image processing systems."

The ratification of the standard culminates a productive year that began with CoaXPress earning the Vision Award at Vision 2009 in Stuttgart, Germany. Since then, support for the standard has been widespread with more than 30 companies providing feedback on the specification development.
