Developing with Camera Link

Anyone wishing to develop, manufacture, or sell private labeled compliant product for commercial purposes or to develop compliant software for distribution must obtain a license to use the Camera Link standard and the Camera Link name and logo from the AIA. AIA provides a free download of the standard for evaluation. Licensing should occur when you start to utilize the intellectual property (IP) of the standard for development.  All products (including software) must be registered with the AIA and must be tested for compliancy with the standard.

Anyone who has purchased Camera Link compliant product and wish to do their own unique one-off integration or application development may use the standard without a license for intra-company or intra-academic departmental use only. System integration companies may use the standard without a license to provide integration service to their customers.

The AIA offers customized limited use licensing agreements to qualified companies wishing to develop a commercial product using an embedded Camera Link application in markets not usually serviced by our membership (i.e., non-competing market segments to vision and imaging companies, such as embedded military applications). Please contact Bob McCurrach for details.
