Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) December 20, 2013
Lumenera Corporation, a leading manufacturer and developer of high-performance digital cameras and custom imaging solutions for industrial, scientific, surveillance and astronomy markets, today released its new high performance USB 3.0 cameras based on Sony’s EXview HAD II ICX674 sensor, running twice the speed of other USB 3.0 cameras on this sensor at 53 frames per second (fps) at full 1936 x 1456 resolution.
Running 53 fps at full resolution or 66 at an HDTV resolution of 1920 x 1088, the Lt365R series takes advantage of Lumenera’s unique memory buffer technology so frames are not lost while running the camera at the sensor’s maximum output. Running at twice the speed of other USB 3.0 cameras on this image sensor, the Lt365R is ideal for industrial and scientific applications requiring incredibly fast data and reliable image delivery including traffic, tolling, life sciences, slide scanning, high-speed inspection and machine vision.
The Lt365R family boasts a 2.8 megapixel progressive scan sensor equipped with a global shutter for capturing high-speed images without blur. The Sony ICX674 used in this camera delivers an amazing level of performance combining speed, sensitivity and low noise, leveraging leading edge technologies from Sony. Lumenera’s “R” designation identifies that these products has been engineered to fulfill the demands of many research applications by significantly reducing the read and dark current noise. This combination provides imaging in difficult lighting situations, or even into the NIR range.
Its compact, lightweight yet robust design, measuring 43 x 43 x 65 mm, and 4 mounting points on all 4 sides, ensure easy integration into Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) solutions with tight spaces. The fully locking USB 3.0 cabling and digital interface provide a simple plug-and-play installation. A costly framegrabber is not required. Simplified I/O cabling is provided through a locking Hirose connector supporting external power input along with 1 optically isolated output, 1 optically isolated input and 2 configurable I/O ports.
“We are very excited to introduce this new camera line, running faster than any other USB 3.0 or GigE ICX674 camera on the market today. This camera is one of the few that fully delivers on the performance capabilities of the Sony ICX674 and the only one to do so on USB 3.0,” stated Dany Longval, VP of Worldwide Sales, Lumenera Corporation. “Our specialized technology ensures frames are delivered via a memory buffer, but without hindering the speed capabilities of the sensor as is found in other solutions. Another engineering coup for Lumenera.”
The Lt365R, available in color and monochrome, are now available and shipping. For additional information on this product line or any of Lumenera’s USB 2.0, USB 3.0 GigE, Ethernet and HDMI solutions, visit http://www.lumenera.com.
