Lumenera Corporation Announces the Release of Their ‘Lumenera Linux SDK 2.1’

Lumenera, a leading manufacturer and developer of high performance digital cameras and custom imaging solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of Lumenera Linux SDK 2.1, their new software development kit designed for embedded platforms using Linux ARM based processors.

Combining powerful features with reliable performance, the Lumenera Linux SDK 2.1 software maximizes the high-speed, high-resolution features of Lumenera’s USB 3.0 cameras. Lumenera chose to formally support Ubuntu Linux with their cameras as it is used by many development teams around the world because of its strong presence globally, versatility, reliability, and extensive developer libraries. Ubuntu has regular Long Term Support (LTS) releases that are supported for five years, making it an ideal choice for developers.

This release officially supports the Lt225, Lt425, Lt365R, Lt665R, Lt965R, Lt1265R, Lt16059H, cameras, as well as their soon-to-be released Lt29059. It also supports Ubuntu (versions 14.04.03, 14.04.04 and 12.04.05) on 32 and 64-bit x86 platforms. Furthermore, it has the same common API call format as Lumenera’s Windows SDK and Linux 2.0 SDK for easy migration between platforms.

“Over the last few years, there has been a significant increase in the availability, performance/power and support of embedded platforms using ARM based processors, largely driven by advances in portable electronic devices”, said Todd Robinson, Product Manager for Lumenera.

“With the release of our Linux 2.1 SDK, we are able to support customers that are integrating our cameras into systems that are based on these increasingly popular embedded platforms.”
Given the wide range of SBC (Single board computer), SoC (System on Chip) and different available versions of Linux, Lumenera has focused their attention on supporting the most popular configurations: Raspberry Pi 2/3, NVidia Jetson TK1 and ODroid XU3/4.

Lumenera Linux SDK 2.1 is now available. Contact info(at)lumenera(dot)com with your imaging requirements, or visit Lumenera online at http://www.lumenera.com for more information.
