LUCID Adds On-Camera Polarization Processing and Software Visualization Tools to Accelerate Development for Polarized Imaging Applications
Richmond, BC, Canada – May 7, 2019 – LUCID Vision Labs, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of unique and innovative industrial vision cameras, has released on-camera polarization processing and software visualization tools to further enhance polarized imaging applications.
A new firmware update for the 5.0 MP Triton™ polarization cameras featuring Sony’s Polarsens™ IMX250MZR sensor now delivers on-camera polarization processing, new polarized pixel formats and polarized channel balancing controls. These new features eliminate the need for user software processing and enable users to directly deploy the camera with third party software. The same capability is coming soon on the Phoenix camera with the Sony IMX250MZR image sensor.
In addition, LUCID’s own ArenaView has added flexible color mapping and control for different AoLP and DoLP ranges for enhanced image contrast. With the ability to process polarization information on-camera more efficiently, the ArenaView now also offers a new virtual polarization filter that mimics the presence of a polarizer filter in front of a regular camera. Through the easy-to-use slider controls, users can experiment and process polarization information on-camera, creating a virtual digital polarization filter in real-time.
“We are pleased to offer our customers more enhanced functionality in our software and hardware to speed up their development for polarized imaging applications,” says Rod Barman, Founder and President at LUCID Vision Labs. “LUCID was first to market with a polarization camera featuring Sony’s Polarsens technology in May 2018, and over the last year we’ve seen strong demand in a wide range of polarization applications such as industrial inspection, process monitoring and scientific applications.”
All LUCID cameras conform to the GigE Vision 2.0 and GenICam3 standards and are supported by LUCID’s own Arena software development kit. The Arena SDK provides customers with easy access to the latest industry standards and software technology. The SDK supports Windows, Linux 64bit and Linux ARM operating systems, and C, C++, C# and Python programming languages.
For the Phoenix and Triton models featuring Sony’s Polarsens IMX250MYR color polarization sensor, LUCID is now also working on the implementation of the same on-camera polarization processing and visualization to make it available soon.
