Lumenera Le256 high performance 2 megapixel HD network camera

Product Profile

Lumenera’s Le256 series of network cameras are designed for higher-end security, military and transportation applications, providing incredible image detail with latest generation 16:9 format CCD sensors.

Streaming full 1920x1080 resolution at up to 15 frames/sec, these cameras deliver outstanding picture quality and low light performance.  Large 2/3” CCD sensor uses progressive scan technology – ideal for capturing high speed moving objects.  Adjustable JPEG and MJPEG compressed still-images or live streaming video, are provided across a standard 10/100BaseT network.  The I/O connector provides an interface to an external alarm sensor or control of peripheral equipment such as, IR lighting, strobe and PTZ.  Alarm notification provides the date, time and camera IP address.

The Le256 is provided with a larger SLR K-Mount.  This provides remote control of focus and iris through SLR lenses – which offer excellent quality and range of focal lengths.  Both monochrome and colour variants are available and when integrated with NIR illuminators, the camera provides outstanding night time performance.

The user defined motion detection parameters across multiple zones provide more accurate triggering of alarms, while programmable privacy zones ensure compatibility with all regulations.  On-board memory buffers supply still images that precede and follow alarm events.  Transfer of images via email, FTP, RTP or HTTP.
