In this community all kind of material is collected, relating to the 1288 standard of the European Machine Vision Industry (EMVA), in short EMVA 1288. Choosing the suitable camera for a given application often proves to be a challenging task. The data sheets provided by the manufacturers are difficult to compare. Frequently, vital pieces of information are not available and the user is forced to conduct a costly comparative test which still may fail to deliver all relevant camera parameters. This is where the EMVA 1288 Standard comes in. It creates transparency by defining reliable and exact measurement procedures as well as data presentation guidelines and makes the comparison of cameras and image sensors much easier.
