Mountain View, Calif. – Pelican Imaging, a developer of
computational imaging technology used in cell phone cameras and other
applications, announced on Tuesday that it has raised $10 million in its second
round of venture capital financing.

Globespan Capital Partners led the
investment round; Granite Ventures, InterWest Partners and the CIA’s In-Q-Tel
