What is the reason for the EMVA1288 standard?


The EMVA1288 is a standard for the specification and measurement of machine vision sensors and cameras, which has a significant benefit for a CCD, CMOS or sCMOS camera user. This standard was initiated by the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA)1. The initiative was launched to define a unified method to measure, compute and present specification parameters for cameras and image sensors used for machine vision applications, but it is not limited to machine vision association. It has also been further accepted by the American Automated Imaging Association (AIA)2 and the Japanese Japan Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA)3.
