Next Generation Camera Protocol Working Group: Led by Yoshitsugu Nakasone of Toshiba Teli Corp., this group is reviewing the GenICam standard being worked on by EMVA.

Lighting Working Group: Chaired by Shigeki Masumura of CCS Inc., this group is charged with creating standards that integrators can follow when setting up a system.

Lens Working Group: Chaired by Hiroshi Yamaguchi of Toshiba Teli, this group works on standardization for industrial lenses, especially in robustness, and intuition. It also wants to work on standardization for smaller lenses.

Camera Spec Standard Working Group: Chaired by Masanori Yasuda of Toshiba Teli, this group wants to specify specification index, definitions and measurement methods as cameras and peripherals move from analog to digital.
