Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) March 27, 2014

Lumenera Corporation, a leading manufacturer and developer of high-performance digital cameras and custom imaging solutions for industrial, scientific, surveillance and astronomy markets, together with MVTec, an established international manufacturer of standard software products for machine vision, announced the integration of HALCON software together with Lumenera’s LuCam image acquisition software for its USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and GigE Vision cameras.

Lumenera’s USB 3.0 cameras are now supported by MVTec and Lumenera’s joint image acquisition interface (HALCON LuCam interface). Lumenera chose to integrate with HALCON’s comprehensive machine vision software that includes an integrated development environment (IDE) and is used worldwide. The latest release of the HALCON LuCam interface maximizes the high-speed, high-resolution features of Lumenera’s USB 3.0 camera series, the Lt225, Lt425 and Lt365R. These families of cameras are designed for high-speed video streaming and image capture, by combining high-performance sensors with the latest USB 3.0 technology, to ensure fast image delivery even at their largest resolutions. Features of the latest HALCON LuCam interface include the ability to stream multiple cameras, image cropping, external trigger, as well as software control of exposure, focus, gain, iris, white balancing, strobe parameters, and digital input/output signals.

As industry leaders, Lumenera and MVTec have successfully partnered before to offer user-friendly integrated software solutions for machine vision applications. Lumenera’s complete portfolio of industrial megapixel cameras is supported by HALCON.

"Lumenera was one of the first members of the MVTec Image Acquisition Partner Program, having joined since it launched in 2007. Over the years, and with fruitful cooperation, we continuously extended and tested the dedicated HALCON LuCam interface.” stated Christoph Zierl, Director Product Management, MVTec Software GmbH. “We always ensure that new camera models are supported, and I'm happy to confirm that with this latest interface release, the benefits of the new USB 3.0 cameras can be easily used for all sorts of applications."

“This new integration with our USB 3.0 cameras opens up a wide variety of machine vision applications where high speed, high accuracy images are required. Our USB 3.0 cameras are built for rugged 24/7 use and ideally suited for applications such as high-speed inspection and motion control, OCR and OCV, bar coding, and defect analysis to name a few”, explains Dany Longval, Vice President, Worldwide Sales at Lumenera Corporation. “We are very pleased that our USB 3.0 customers can now take advantage of this joint solution and to our continued work with HALCON.”
