Digital solutions – Developed to be exceptional!
Soft Imaging System’s digital cameras meet the steadily rising expectations being placed on digital acquisition. The 12-bit ColorView I – equipped with FireWire™ technology (IEEE 1394) – is for use in the field of light microscopy.
The ColorView I makes it possible to acquire high-resolution color and black-and-white images, rich in detail and contrast with low noise. And the truly astonishing thing is how easy this high-performance camera is to use – just as easy as any regular video camera.
The ColorView I’s full integration into the analySIS® software provides all capabilities and advantages of Soft Imaging System’s innovative solutions to all challenges of image processing and analysis, ranging from image labeling on to image archiving, report generation and e-mailing and including photo-realistic printouts – all without any need for a darkroom.
Sample: Flourescence acquisition of concrete
Resolution: 2048 x 1536 pixel x 12 bits
The ColorView I’s CCD chip has a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution. This is more than seven times greater than what a regular video camera can provide. The user sees more and measurements can be carried out with even greater precision.
The ColorView I’s 12-bit dynamic range provides images of 4096 gray values (or 4096 gray values per RGB channel). So what does that mean? It means that images can be acquired that have either very bright or very pale areas. Ultimately, this higher depth of data reflects a greater depth of information overall.
This camera supports three different frame rates. The special “search mode” with a frame rate of more than 25 images per second at 688 x 512 pixels makes finding suitable areas of a sample directly on the PC screen especially convenient. The “focus mode” provides 15 images per second at 1024 x 768 pixels. And thirdly, at the highest resolution – 2048 x 1536 pixels – you’re still getting 5 images per second. This means your focusing can be done in real time and upon image acquisition, you have images of temptingly persuasive quality.
In the search and focus mode, the ColorView I uses either triple or double true-color binning. This ensures that the user sees the entire image segment in color while searching or focusing. This guarantees that the user is able to view all images in color independent of the resolution.
FireWire™ technology guarantees that the ColorView I can be easily and conveniently installed on any PC or laptop equipped with a FireWire™ port. No extra frame grabber is necessary. This also means the user has the enviable option of using more than one camera with the same PC.
The CCD chip temperature is stabilized to increase the signal/noise ratio.
The highly sensitive CCD elements make it possible to detect even very weak signals. The electronic shutter offers exposure times ranging up to 160 seconds. The ColorView I offers exposure time ranging from 100 µs to 160 sec. Details of your sample that had been impossible to see, become readily identifiable. This is just as true for low-intensity applications as well!
Furthermore, the ColorView I offers a black-and-white acquisition mode. The resolution of this special mode is restricted to 1024 x 768 pixels. This means you are able to acquire monochrome fluorescence images without having to use a second camera, for example.
The ColorView I’s elegantly designed housing is compact and can be mounted onto any light microscope with a C-mount. No additional interfaces or adaptors are necessary. ColorView I’s integration into analySIS® provides numerous advantages.
ColorView I’s own impressive velocity along with the speed of today’s CPU’s mean that a whole range of real-time functions are available within analySIS®. One of these is automatic contrast enhancement. Others include automatic white and black balance, focus control and histogram display.
An extensive range of text, graphic and editing functions is available for labeling your images. For more extensive examination of images there are specialized filters and professional particle analysis. This ensures that it is easy for you to obtain your results fast and flexibly – and those results are reproducible.
Get printouts of photographic quality immediately following image acquisition. The need for a dark room or all those film-developing chemicals has gone the way of the horse-drawn carriage. As opposed to using conventional film, you obtain printouts of your acquisitions within minutes – and of photographic quality.
This means quick and efficient generation of single- or multi-page reports of your results – using the images you’ve acquired. All you do is select the images you need from your database or from the images manager and drag and drop them onto your report template. Then your report is completed. Along with the image itself, all information contained in database fields is automatically inserted into the corresponding fields of the template. Reports are generated based on templates that you create yourself according to your own personal preferences and/or according to company guidelines.
