Lumenera Corporation Releases High Sensitivity, Low Noise, USB 3.0 Research-Grade Microscopy Camera
Lumenera Corporation Posted 04/14/2014INFINITY3-3UR offers 53 fps at full 2.8 megapixel resolution, producing clear, detailed images in low light environments
Ottawa, Ontario – Lumenera Corporation, a leading manufacturer and developer of high-performance digital cameras and custom imaging solutions for industrial, scientific, surveillance and astronomy markets, today released its new high performance USB 3.0 microscopy camera based on Sony’s EXview HAD II ICX674 sensor, running twice the speed of other USB 3.0 microscopy cameras on this sensor at 53 frames per second (fps) at full 1936 x 1456 resolution.
Lumenera’s INFINITY3-3UR is a higher resolution, high sensitivity research-grade microscopy camera that incorporates the innovative Sony ICX674 CCD 2.8 megapixel resolution sensor. The result is a camera that produces clear and detailed images, even when captured in low light environments such as fluorescence and NIR. This USB 3.0 camera is well suited for wide-field microscopy imaging applications requiring optimal color reproduction, increased resolution, high sensitivity and high speed.
The INFINITY3-3UR unleashes the high frame rate capability of the sensor by using a high-speed USB 3.0 data interface at 5 Gbits/s to send streaming video and still image capture to a computing platform. The INFINITY3-3UR takes advantage of Lumenera’s unique memory buffer technology so frames are not lost while running the camera at the sensor’s maximum output. Computer friendly USB 3.0 technology means that no framegrabber is required, eliminating the hassles and extra costs of integration.
The research-grade designation of the INFINITY3-3UR is a result of the low noise electronics, high-grade components and unique thermal management techniques implemented inside the camera. Together with Lumenera’s strong onboard image pre-processing, the end result is an industry-leading, low noise performance digital camera, unique in its class. The INFINITY3-3UR includes INFINITY ANALYZE software for advanced camera control, image processing, measurement and annotation, as well as INFINITY CAPTURE.
“Lumenera is proud to introduce the INFINITY3-3UR running faster than any other ICX674 USB microscopy camera on the market today. This camera is one of the few that fully delivers on the performance of the Sony ICX674 EXview HAD II CCD sensor, and is the only one to do so on USB 3.0.” stated Eric Ramsden, Product Manager, Lumenera Corporation. “In imaging tests, the INFINITY3-3UR exceeded our expectations and we are confident our customers will be thrilled with the amazing performance of this camera.”
The INFINITY3-3UR is available in color and monochrome, is now available and shipping.
