Sigma in L-Mount Alliance with Full Frame Foveon camera in 2019, new lenses 28mm, 40mm, 56mm at F1.4
Sigma talks about their Full Frame Foveon mirrorless camera to be released in 2019, their L Mount Plans they plan to begin producing L mount lenses in 2019, starting with adding L mount options to the the existing Art series lenses, introducing an EF-to-L mount adapter and an SA-to-L mount adapter in 2019, also offering L mount conversion to its lens conversion service. In this video, Sigma also shows their new Sigma 28mm F1.4 DG HSM Art “thoroughly correct” for chromatic aberration and sagittal coma flare, minimizing distortion, water- and oil-repellent coating on the front lens element and is weather sealed. It features a Hyper Sonic Motor with an updated algorithm to drive autofocusing and will be sold in Sigma, Nikon, Canon and Sony E camera mounts, the Sigma 40mm F1.4 DG HSM Art featuring three FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements and three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements to correct axial chromatic aberration and magnification chromatic aberration ideal for high-resolution filmmaking. Sigma 56mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary to be available for Micro Four Thirds and Sony E mounts, supports Sony’s Fast Hybrid AF, eye AF and facial recognition, Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Sports flagship telephoto in the sports line has a magnesium body and a dust-and splash-proof design, front lens element is coated to repel oil and water. The lens features an Intelligent Optical Stabilization system with an acceleration sensor and an algorithm to ensure stability when panning.
The Blue Ember microphone delivers a strong, clean signal with ample headroom, a custom hand-tuned condenser capsule capturing maximum detail, while the tight cardioid pickup pattern helps reduce room and background noise. Ember’s compact, side-address design fits anywhere and keeps a low profile on camera. Bring Blue’s legendary studio sound to creative space.
Cluster Imaging makes all images better with superior depth map processing. Depth maps are a next-generation foundation technology enabling accurate image element isolation and visual space identification. Depth information will enable new frontiers in automotive and industrial markets.
Autonomous driving systems have to date relied on LIDAR- and RADARbased depth sensing. These technologies suffer from limited resolution, no integrated colour sensing, high costs, bulky specially-sourced hardware, and poor performance in rain.
Cluster Imaging’s depth camera modules produce full-colour video plus an embedded high-resolution depth map suitable for accurate image recognition. The modules are manufactured using standard, low-cost image sensors. They can be used standalone or as a complement to LIDAR/RADAR.

eMAG is a family of high-performance ARM server processors designed by Ampere Computing. Ampere's introduction of eMAG to the market concludes and follows on the X-Gene3 design started out by AppliedMicro. eMAG processors targets server workloads capable of taking advantage of a high core count with high throughput. First generation eMAG processors are based on the Skylark microarchitecture, a design that started out by AppliedMicro. Fabricated on TSMC's 16FF+ process, those processors feature up to 32 cores operating at up to 3.3 GHz. DDR4 channels, up to 2666 MT/s with ECC; 1 TiB/socket I/O: 42 PCIe Gen 3 lanes TDP: Up to 125 W Second generation eMAG processors are planned for 2019. Those chips will be based on Ampere's Quicksilver microarchitecture and feature an array of new features and improvements developed also with the new staff that Ampere hired over from Qualcomm's ARM Server team.
