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.
