Lumenera Releases Gigabit Ethernet Camera Line With Onboard Compression and Compatible SDK

Compression and compatibility a testament to Lumenera's advanced imaging capabilities

VISION 2009, STUTTGART, GERMANY--(Marketwire - Nov. 2, 2009) - Lumenera Corporation,, a leading developer and manufacturer of high performance digital cameras and custom imaging solutions today announced the release of a new Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) industrial camera line designed for applications requiring increased bandwidth, faster sensors with higher data throughput, and longer cable lengths.

This initial Lg family of cameras consists of 2 and 11 megapixel cameras, both based on high quality CCD sensors with electronic global shutters. The Lg235 and Lg11059 are specifically designed for industrial applications with low-light conditions where high dynamic range is required, and provide excellent sensitivity with high fidelity color reproduction. The Lg235 and Lg11059 are GigE Vision Interface Compliant, providing a compact form factor that is ideal for tight space constraints. Both cameras are available in color or monochrome and feature a Hirose connector for control of peripherals and synchronization of lighting.

The 2 megapixel Lg235 features a 1/1/8" sensor and streams video at 25 fps at full resolution, while the Lg11059 with a 43mm diagonal sensor offers 5 fps at full 4008 x 2672 resolution. Other highlights of the Lg11059 include a Canon bayonet-style mount with auto focus and auto iris control. Both camera models offers a Software Developers Kit (SDK) compatible with the existing LuCam USB SDK, allowing existing applications built with LuCam API to be fully compatible and easily integrated.

"We are excited to launch this new family of GigE cameras with on-board JPEG compression that reduces file size, increases frame rates and allows for multiple cameras to run smoothly on one system." stated Darren Bessette, Industrial Product Manager, Lumenera Corporation. "Compression and commonality with existing cameras is yet another testament of Lumenera's advanced imaging capabilities."

The Lg235 and Lg11059 are now sampling. Contact with your industrial GigE and custom camera requirements, visit the Lumenera website at, or visit us at Vision Stuttgart, Hall 6, #B19 for a live demonstration.
