Lumenera Launches New 16 Megapixel High Resolution Industrial USB 2.0 Camera

Replace multiple lower resolution cameras with a single Lw16059

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 launch of the new Lw16059 16 megapixel camera designed for applications requiring a large field of view, high dynamic range, and extremely high sensitivity.

With 4872 x 3248 resolution, large dynamic range with up to 65dB, and a selectable 8 or 12-bit output, this camera series is ideal for challenging applications in which large fields of view, short exposure times, and high contrast capabilities are required. Featuring a frame rate of 2fps at full resolution, bursting up to 3fps, a single Lw16059 can be implemented in a system where several cameras were previously required and produce the same image quality.

"Lumenera continues to expand its product line with this latest USB 2.0 offering." stated Greg Bell, VP of Business Development, Lumenera Corporation. "In record time we've developed this multi-megapixel camera, quickly responding to partner demand for a higher resolution imaging solution that meets the needs of today's market."

The 16 megapixel camera series is available in both monochrome and colour versions, and comes standard with a Canon bayonet-style mount with auto focus and auto iris control. As with all Lumenera USB 2.0 cameras, the Lw16059 includes a complete Software Developer's Kit (SDK) to quickly integrate camera functions into OEM applications.

The Lw16059 is now sampling. Contact with your industrial and custom/OEM camera requirements, visit the Lumenera website at, or visit us at Vision Stuttgart, Hall 6, #B19 for a live demonstration.
