Lumenera Releases New 32 Megapixel CCD Microscopy Camera With Pixel Shifting Technology

Excellent color reproduction and unbeatable price

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 25, 2008) - Lumenera Corporation, a leading manufacturer and developer of high performance digital cameras and custom imaging solutions for scientific, industrial and security markets, is pleased to introduce the new INFINITYX-32 pixel shifting camera, specifically designed for customers in the clinical, life and material science fields. Available at a fraction of the cost of competitive cameras, this complete imaging solution with an unbeatable price-to-performance ratio, offers 32 megapixel resolution, high sensitivity, 12-bit data and low noise levels.

The INFINITYX-32 is the first pixel shifting camera based on the Sony ICX274 CCD sensor. This progressive scan 2.0 megapixel sensor is comprised of 4.4 micron square pixels in a 1616 x 1216 array. DeltaVu™ technology captures still images at user selectable resolutions between 2 and 32 megapixel, maximizing the resolving power of the microscope optics. This unique technology shifts the sensor at sub-pixel resolution between each image capture, resulting in a megapixel image with precise detail and incredible color reproduction.

Live video provides real-time focus, while auto exposure and auto white balance provide high quality images. A USB 2.0 digital interface ensures a simple plug-and-play installation with no need for costly and difficult-to-handle framegrabbers. Available in both color and monochrome, the INFINITYX-32 is fully supported by Lumenera's advanced and easy-to-use INFINITY ANALYZE software, with a wide variety of functions for image enhancement and analysis, including measurement, annotation, archiving and image processing.

The INFINITYX-32 is now shipping. Visit Lumenera at the AACR Meeting, booth #609. www.lumenera.com.
