- Created on Thursday, 01 December 2011
Lumenera Corporation (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) has introduced its 5.0 megapixel USB 2.0 camera series. Formulated with the Sony Super HAD ICX655 CCD sensor, the Lw560 and Lw565 feature a 2448 × 2048 resolution and selectable 8 or 14-bit output, providing color images in the visible and Near Infrared (NIR) light spectrum.
With interline transfer, progressive scan, fully global electronic shutter,
and a short image integration time, Lumenera’s Lw560 and Lw565
digital cameras capture high-speed motion images. Region of Interest
(ROI) and binning modes allow the camera to run at faster frame rates
(23 fps at 640 × 480).
The USB 2.0 camera series features onboard processing. A USB 2.0 interface also provides plug-and-play functionality. A Software Developer’s Kit (SDK) is available to integrate camera functions into OEM applications; it includes support for Standard Windows API, Windows.NET, and DirectX.
