Important note for USB-based cameras: When downloading a Software Upgrade, note that the software will prompt you to uninstall the previous version of software. You can also uninstall the previous version of the software manually before you download the latest version, but you need to reboot your computer (if prompted) to ensure that you do not experience difficulties with future software upgrades.

This full INFINITY software installation package includes a number of significant updates to the INFINITY ANALYZE application. The INFINITY Software operates on 32 & 64-bit platforms running Windows 7 & 8, VISTA, or XP operating systems. Refer to the Release Notes for an overview of the changes included in this release. The updated copy of the INFINITY ANALYZE User’s Manual can be accessed from the Help -> Manual menu function within the application Training & Tutorials can now be accessed directly from the Help -> Online Help menu within INFINITY ANALYZE.
**IMPORTANT NOTE ** If upgrading INFINITY software from a release prior to 6.0.0, refer to this Technical Note for information and instructions on migrating any calibration presets files to a new location.
The INFINITY ANALYZE package operates in Demo mode when no INFINITY camera is attached to act as the license key. If an unlicensed INFINITY camera is used with INFINITY ANALYZE, it will not be possible to save any images. An Advanced Features USB-Key is required to unlock the two Advanced Features (Multi-Focus Composition & Spherical Aberration Correction) which otherwise run in demo mode only. Contact the support team if you have any questions regarding the INFINITY camera applications.
INFINITY ANALYZE includes language support for Latin Spanish, Castilian Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Korean and French.
The INFINITYHD camera provides full color, high definition (2 megapixel) video directly to a 1080p60 monitor via HDMI. The camera does not require a connection to a computer to operate. The INFINITYHD generates a video stream directly to a monitor at 60 frames per second with 1080 lines of resolution. Three buttons mounted on the camera provide the ability to turn the power on/off, perform a white balance operation, or to capture an image. To capture an image, the camera must be connected to a PC with the supplied USB 2.0 cable, and the INFINITYHD CAPTURE application software must be running. The camera device drivers and the INFINITYHD CAPTURE application are included in this download. For additional information on the INFINITYHD camera consult the FAQ section of the web site. The INFINITYHD camera does not stream video over the USB 2.0 cable, and is not compatible with the INFINITY CAPTURE or ANALYZE software packages.
The INFINITYHD CAPTURE application now includes the option to set the camera output to be rotated by 180 degrees. Refer to the Quick Start Guide for additional details.

This package provides the necessary files, documentation and tools to build and develop applications for all Lumenera USB-based and GigE products. Sample applications have been updated to support the new USB 3.0 products, including the addition of a new C++ sample that illustrates how to configure network settings for Lumenera GigE cameras. The Lumenera Application Programmer Interface (API) is a common set of tools and camera controls that is easy-to-learn. It allows you to develop an application for one camera model and then easily integrate other camera models as needed. The same interface is used for all Windows operating systems and supports both 32 and 64-bit environments. Offering the ability to stream raw, compressed or filtered image data, the Lumenera Camera SDK can control how and where to send video or snapshot image streams. You can display the image stream to a window created by the API or to one under your own application’s control, and/or stream directly to an AVI file. The API also provides the ability to add your own callback functions to the image data streams for inline processing and can signal event structures to notify you of changes in I/O activity or camera disconnects. Consult the Release Notes for the complete summary of additions and improvements available in this release.
For use with the INFINITY1-1, INFINITY1-2, INFINITY1-3, INFINITY1-5, INFINITY2-1, INFINITY2-2, INFINITY2-3, INFINITY3-1 and INFINITY3-1U.
Media Cybernetics has also released the Lumenera Capture Interface v.9.0, adding support for Lumenera's INFINITY1-2 and INFINITY1-3 cameras in Image-Pro Premier 64-bit software. Learn more on the Media Cybernetics website.
Lumenera's INFINITY USB camera models can now be accessed directly from the Micro-Manager (µManager) Software. This integration of the INFINITY cameras allows for full camera control and image acquisition, thereby extending the existing capabilities of Micro-Manager that provide image processing and analysis functions, and also offer controls for motorized microscope stages. To download µManager or to obtain more information, visit www.micro-manager.org. A minimum version of µManager 1.4.13 for Windows (32 or 64-bit) is required. The Mac OS X version of Micro-Manager is not supported. All INFINITY camera models are recognized by the plug-in, however the pixel-shifting options for INFINITYX camera models are not supported. Refer to the Installation Guide for instructions on installing the plug-in. The Quick Start Guide provides the necessary steps to get started.
Lumenera’s INFINITY2-1, INFINITY2-2, INFINITY2-5, INFINITY3-1 and INFINITY3-1U camera models can now be accessed directly from the MetaMorph® Software from Molecular Devices, providing direct camera control and image acquisition. This integration of the INFINITY cameras will allow licensed users of the MetaMorph®Software to immediately access the advanced set of image processing and analysis features on captured images. This package works with both the MetaMorph and MetaMorph NX Software suites.
This Lumenera USB 2.0 Camera LabVIEW plug-in allows the creation of LabVIEW VIs that can be used to control all Lumenera USB 2.0 cameras. It now supports LabVIEW versions 2009 & 2010 (both 32 and 64-bit), and Vision Builder AI versions 3.0 & 3.5 (32-bit). Support remains available for releases of LabVIEW 7.1, 8.0, 8.2, 8.5, and 8.6. This plug-in requires the installation of LabVIEW, the NI Vision Development Module, and the applicable Lumenera Software for your camera model. If you have any questions about LabVIEW, contact National Instruments directly at www.ni.com. If you have any camera specific questions contact our TAC team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
