Dear Colleague,

Welcome to the second edition of Embedded Vision Insights, the newsletter of the Embedded Vision Alliance.

The Embedded Vision Alliance achieved a key milestone on September 20 with its successful premier Alliance Summit meeting, hosted by Alliance member Xilinx at its San Jose, CA facilities. The daylong series of briefings, planning sessions and relationship-building opportunities were judged highly rewarding by all in attendance, and set in place a solid foundation for 2012-and-beyond activities. Please see here for a detailed report on the day's events and outcomes.

The next quarterly Alliance Summit is scheduled for Tuesday, December 6 in Dallas, TX, hosted by Alliance member Texas Instruments.  It immediately precedes Alliance member IMS Research's Touch-Gesture-Motion Conference in nearby Austin. If you're already a member of the Embedded Vision Alliance, mark that date in your calendar and plan to attend. If your company is interested in joining the Alliance, contact Jeremy Giddings at 510-451-1800 or for membership information. And please also continue to send us your feedback about this newsletter and how we can improve it. I look forward to hearing from you.

Editor-In-Chief, Embedded Vision Alliance
