2023 PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
The Triton2 camera family has grown this year, pairing a 2.5GigE interface with Sony Pregius and Pregius S sensors to deliver higher bandwidth than 1GigE cameras without compromising on size, cost-performance, or thermal management.
Atlas10–10GigE with RDMA
The VSD Platinum Award winning Atlas10 cameras with RDMA can bypass the CPU bottleneck to stream up to 1.2GB/s data directly to main memory. This increases throughput, lowers latency, and eliminates CPU usage, which are all necessary for reliable multi-10GigE camera applications.
New Helios2 3D Cameras
Our Time-of-Flight camera family expanded to include the Helios2 Wide Field of View (108° x 78° FOV) camera, offering a 4x larger imaging area than the Helios2 camera. The new Helios2 Ray outdoor camera features 940nm VCSEL laser diodes, enabling it to generate 3D point clouds under full sunlight. Learn more
Triton HDR with AltaView
We introduced AltaView™ this year, which is LUCID's on-camera adaptive tone mapping engine available on the new Triton HDR camera. Paired with Sony's IMX490 HDR sensor, AltaView delivers real-time tone-mapped image output directly from the camera, producing data-rich 8-bit images.
Triton SWIR Camera
The Triton SWIR camera features wide-band and high-sensitivity Sony SenSWIR 1.3 MP IMX990 and 0.3 MP IMX991 InGaAs sensors, and is capable of capturing images across both visible and invisible light spectrums. The Triton SWIR offers IP67 protection, and is compact and cost-effective.
New Phoenix Variants
LUCID added even more flexibility to the Phoenix camera family with new configurations to support unique application requirements. Our new models include a no-lens mount with extended flange and an extended head with FFC connection. Did you know you can customize the Phoenix camera even more? Contact us for details.
JupyterLab Resource Center for ArenaView LUCID added more JupyterLab notebooks to our resource center including the SWIR notebook and YOLO notebook. Quickly unlock the power of JupyterLab in ArenaView with our ready-to-use downloadable notebooks. Visit the JupyterLab Resource Center
