Lytro Launches Lytro Platform to Empower Exploration of Light Field Technology

Lytro, Inc. announced the Lytro Platform to empower innovative organizations to harness the full potential of the light field in their industries. Signaling the expansion of Lytro's proprietary light field technology beyond the domain of photography, the Lytro Platform will bring the transformational power of the light field to an entirely new set of imaging applications for the first time. The Lytro Platform advances the company beyond the realm of camera manufacturing and into a broader role of enabling innovation in imaging, positioning Lytro as the hub of a new technology ecosystem. The first product to be released as part of the Lytro Platform is the Lytro Development Kit (LDK). The LDK provides imaging researchers with the high degree of control of Lytro's advanced light field capture devices and software processing engine. It paves the path for deeper partnerships with technical R&D teams and enterprises in new undiscovered applications and scientific fields. Lytro will be a strategic partner, helping customers discover new use cases, automate processes and even design custom hardware. In the future, Lytro will release other new products as part of the Lytro Platform.
