GigE Vision: Pleora Technologies Inc. Pleora Technologies is the leading company in high speed Gigabit Ethernet applications for machine vision. When Pleora introduced the technology, Toshi Hori and George Chamberlain, President of Pleora, with others convened to begin the industrial standardization for GigE Vision. In 2003, an official committee was organized and started promotion of the standard. The committee was transferred to an AIA committee with Toshi and George serving as co-chairs of the standardization until Toshi resigned from the AIA board as a result of the acquisition of PULNiX by JAI. The GigE Vision standard was approved in 2006 and the benefits of the technology are significant. In 2007, Pleora was awarded the Frost & Sullivan Product Innovation Award. The Award recognizes Pleora's sustained efforts in Gigabit Ethernet product development and innovation. It acknowledges Pleora's role in creating a market for GigE technology for machine vision. GEViCAM and Pleora Technologies are strategic business partners.
Neural Network Camera: General Vision Inc. General Visionwas founded by Anne Menendez in 1987 and joined by Guy Paillet in 1999. Guy is the inventor of the hardware neural network chip known as the "ZISC"(Zero Instruction Set Computer) and jointly developed with IBM, France. Beginning in 1997, he and Toshi began a significant effort to develop a neuron based "user trainable" camera. As a result, PULNiX introduced the "ZiCAM", a completely novel type of "trainable" camera having unique and important new capabilities. When JAI acquired PULNiX, the ZiCAM product was dropped, but Toshi and Guy continued independent development of the technology: Anne and Guy successfully developed a more advanced neural network architecture, the CogniMem, while Toshi focused on adapting the GigE platform to the neural network engine. GEViCAM was incorporated to pursue the integration and commercialization of these technologies. GEViCAM's smart cameras are based on "Associated memories = Neurons" and function in a manner similar to human brain. And like the human brain, they do not require a CPU or microprocessor for the image recognition process. GEViCAM and General Vision are strategic business partners.
