- Appointment underscores leadership role of Pleora in vision industry
OTTAWA, Feb. 6 /CNW Telbec/ - Pleora Technologies, a leading supplier of
Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) video connectivity products, today announced the
election of its President, George Chamberlain, to a two-year term on the
Automated Imaging Association (AIA) Board of Directors.
The AIA is the machine vision industry's trade group, representing more
than 300 member companies from 28 countries. The AIA manages the
administration of standards development (including GigE Vision(TM) and Camera
Link(R)), sponsors conferences and other trade events, and publishes
directories and vision-related market studies.
"This appointment recognizes Pleora's leadership in the AIA in matters
relating to the adoption of GigE by the vision industry and the development of
the GigE Vision standard," said Mr. Chamberlain. "I look forward to working
with other board members to provide strategic guidance to the group,
particularly in light of today's challenging economic climate."
Mr. Chamberlain and other members of the Pleora team co-founded the GigE
Vision Standard initiative in 2003 and have played a central role at every
subsequent stage of its development, including the transfer of the standard to
the AIA in 2006 and the drafting of today's Validation Framework.
"George has tremendous experience in the machine vision industry and is
able to provide the Board with an insightful perspective on how the AIA best
can offer valuable services to its members," said Dana Whalls, the AIA's
Managing Director. "I'm looking forward to his input. We have a strong group
of industry leaders on the Board for 2009-2010; their enthusiasm and
dedication will help us support and grow the machine vision industry."
Mr. Chamberlain was formally introduced as a Board Member at the AIA
Business Conference on February 4-6, 2009 in Coronado, California. The first
Board meeting took place on Wednesday, February 4, 2009.
