Lumenera Camera Equipped with Tamron Lens Awarded FIPS201
Lumenera Corporation, in partnership with Tamron, announced the award of FIPS201 certification for Lumenera's Lu375C camera equipped with Tamron's M12VM412 CCTV lens. The joint solution now meets United States federal government standards specifying Personal Identity Verification (PIV) requirements in facial image capturing systems. Federal Information Processing Standard Publication 201 (FIPS 201) is a United States federal government standard that specifies PIV requirements for federal employees and contractors. Since its introduction, FIPS201 led to the standardization of biometric processing for electronic credentials used for logical and physical access control systems. The Lu375C is a USB 2.0, 3.1 megapixel color camera designed to be used in a variety of industrial and security applications requiring high resolution at a modest cost. Uncompressed images in live streaming video and still image captures are provided across a USB 2.0 digital interface. With 2048 x 1536 resolution and on-board processing this camera delivers outstanding image quality and value.
The Tamron M12VM412 CCTV Lens (4-12mm, f/1.4), with a focal length of 4-12mm, delivers high quality imagery and is well suited for cameras with a ½" imager size such as Lumenera's Lu375. An aperture range of f/1.4-close allows for clear images in low light conditions. The CCTV lens has hybrid aspherical elements that reduce various optical aberrations, delivering high optical quality. It features manual iris, focus and zoom with lock, a focus range of 0.3m and in air back focus of 9.05mm (wide) to 18.90mm (tele). A multi-coating on the lens surface lessens ghosting and flare in backlit conditions.
