InfinityHD and Infinity2-IR cameras
Lumenera has released the InfinityHD 2 Megapixel microscopy colour camera and the Infinity2-IR camera. The InfinityHD has a high resolution 1/3-inch CMOS sensor and is ideally suited to colour-sensitive microscopy applications including brightfield, clinical and industrial microscopy.
This camera provides true 1080p60 streaming video with full colour output. It is equipped with a built in auto-intensity compensation that automatically adjusts the video stream as the microscope objective or the light intensity changes. Real-time live video preview enables accurate focus and specimen placement allowing for quicker slide reviews.
The USB 2.0 digital interface ensures a simple plug-and-play installation, and is combined with a proven, stable set of USB camera drivers to provide reliability and long-term operation with no down time.
The Infinity2-IR USB 2.0 microscopy camera is engineered for documentation and image analysis in life science, clinical and material science applications, where high resolution and excellent sensitivity are required.
The camera offers a significant performance increase for quantitative and low-light applications over its predecessor. Reduced operating temperatures combined with a much higher dynamic range and 14-bit data output have resulted in a versatile entry-level research camera. The camera manages seconds of exposure time with a dark current rating of less than 1e-/s.
For lower light applications, the Sony HAD ICX205 CCD sensor has a high dynamic range of 64dB, allowing users to image unevenly lit samples. The resulting images show detail in bright and dark areas not normally seen in lower dynamic range cameras. Advanced thermal management allows for long exposure times of several minutes without the need for a higher priced cooled camera.
The cameras are also available in Europe from Framos.
