Microscope Imaging System

Toshiba Imaging Systems Division, a producer of advanced 3CCD colour video imaging, in conjunction with Olympus Canada, has launched a High-Definition Synergy-HD Microscope Imaging System for clinical pathology and teaching. Toshiba's compact IK-HD1 3CCD HDTV camera is integrated with Olympus' line of clinical microscopes, which feature objectives and optics that are suited to digital imaging.

The system, which includes a high-definition, wide screen 42-inch or 47-inch 1080p LCD monitor, delivers video imagery in real time, displaying the entire slide at all ROIs and magnifications. Toshiba's camera and proprietary 3-chip prism block technology offers 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution at 30fps with superb colour reproduction, contrast and image detail without binning, image jitter or video lag.

A wide variety of adjustments, including the creation of custom colour matrices and other user settings, are available via the compact, easy-to-use camera control unit.

The commercial LCD display has a high refresh rate of 8ms with a broadcast quality, HD-SDI video format of 1.4Gb/s data rate. With high brightness and 60,000 hours of back light life span, the HD 1080i LCD display offers high contrast images that are viewable from any angle.

Depending upon the need, an additional PC with an HD-SDI frame grabber can be added, allowing digital capture of the HD images at full 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. The frame grabber allows simultaneous viewing of the microscopy slide image on the LCD monitor, making it ideal for tumour boards and clinical rounds as well as various medical and life science teaching environments.
