As part of our active contributions to the GenICam standard, MVTec Software GmbH recently has uploaded the so-called "GenTL Producer Framework" to the GenICam code repository. This comprehensive C++ framework serves as common basis for any kind of GenTL Producer implementations. In particular, all camera manufacturers that plan to support the GenICam GenTL standard with their 2D and/or 3D cameras will benefit, since they are no longer forced to develop their GenTL Producer implementation from scratch.
This contribution is part of MVTec’s strategy to focus on established interface standards like GenICam, GigE Vision, and USB3 Vision. It will certainly strengthen the GenICam GenTL standard by raising both the number and also the quality of available implementations.
These implementations can then easily be used in combination with the well-established HALCON GenICamTL interface.
