Chairman of the Standardization Committee:Mr. Sadafumi TORII, Hamamatsu Photonics K.K.
(1)The Standardization Committee and its standardization through promotionThe Standardization Committee was organized specifically to form from time to time the Working Groups which are depending upon specifications to promote standardization underneath.
As of today the Standardization Committee has managed three Technical Committees, five Working Groups taking care of camera interfaces, two Working Groups doing of camera protocols, and three Working Groups doing of imaging techniques. Each Working Group puts a team called the Task Force which serves and helps to standardize technical specifications for machine vision cameras and peripheral products in the industrial and medical market.
(2)Holding the Standardization Committee and coordinating among the Working GroupsThe Standardization Committee organized of the Technical Committees and the Working Groups respectively holds periodically meetings and coordinate among the Working Groups. Each Working Group is composed of specialists with expertise, makes the specification, and promotes our standardization. The specification is drafted by the Working Group respectively and coordinated among all the Working Groups.
1.Camera Interface Technical Committee(Chairperson: Mr. Hiroshi FUKUI, Daitron CO., LTD.)
1-1. CoaXPress Working GroupGroup Chairperson：Mr. Masahito WATANABE, Adimec Electronic Imaging K.K.
This Committee serves direct activities to draft technical specifications and documentations for standardization of CoaXPress, manages the electric conformance test and interoperability test to approve the specification, and drives global expansion and growth for the specification and qualified products through promotion.

1-2. USB3 Vision Working GroupGroup Chairperson：Mr. Yuuki NAGAO, NEC Platforms, LTD.
1-3. Optical Transmission Media Working GroupGroup Chairperson：Mr. Hiroshi FUKUI, Daitron CO., LTD.
The Optical Transmission Media Working Group has started to study potential new requirements to implement smaller size cameras and to take into robust systems for user-friendliness, four types of the Optical Connectors have been proposed to AIA and EMVA by JIIA.
1-4. Camera Link Working GroupGroup Chairperson：Mr. Hiroshi FUKUI, Daitron CO., LTD.
JIIA-CLWG received a report regarding HDR/SDR connector problem from AIA CL member at the IVSM in 2014 fall. They proposed to revise the CL standard to solve this problem. However, we found this problem is based on misunderstanding. JIIA- CLWG submitted a counter proposal to avoid confusion in the market. And, high speed CL on FPGA cameras increase in the market. Present Standard is not enough to support for high speed camera. AIA CL technical committee is considering version up for this issue. JIIA-CLWG watch the proceedings carefully.
1-5. GigE Vision Working Group(This working group has been maintained by the Camera Interface Technical Committee.)
2.Camera Protocol Technical Committee(Chairperson: Mr. Sadafumi TORII, Hamamatsu Photonics K.K.)
2-1. IIDC2 Working GroupGroup Chairperson：Mr. Sadafumi TORII, Hamamatsu Photonics K.K.
2-2. GenICam Working Group(This working group has been maintained by the Camera Protocol Technical Committee.)
The activity for standardization is going on worldwide, then this WG works to introduce technical information and promote the standard.
3.Imaging Technical Committee(Chairperson: Mr. Yutaka YAMAGUCHI, Toshiba Teli Corporation)
3-1. Camera Specification Working GroupGroup Chairperson：Mr. Masanori YASUDA, Toshiba Teli Corporation
3-2. Lighting Working GroupGroup Chairperson：Mr. Tsuneo SAKUMA, Kirin Techno-System Company, Limited
The Global Lighting Working Group consisting of AIA, EMVA and JIIA is collaborating to draft suggestions in regards to standardizations of the performance metrics of LEDs/Lasers, the lighting command and control, the photobiological safety and so on.
3-3. Lens Working GroupGroup Chairperson：Mr. Yutaka YAMAGUCHI, Toshiba Teli Corporation
This Working Group is committed to proposing and standardizing a technical specification and guidance for the Optical Technology such as Lens Mount which brings in more considerate robustness, handy, and intuition for customers. The Working Group has enacted six lens mount standards. Currently, the lens mount standards are enacted as NF mount, NF-J mount, TFL & TFL-II mount, and S mount.
