ProgRes SpeedXT Core 3 and 5 cameras
The Digital Imaging business unit of the Jenoptik Optical Systems Division has added two USB camera types to its ProgRes CCD microscope camera range: ProgRes SpeedXT Core 3 and ProgRes SpeedXT Core 5.
The cameras provide a live image speed of 17fps (SpeedXT Core 3) and 13fps (SpeedXT Core 5) at maximum resolution of 2,080 x 1,542 pixel (SpeedXT Core 3) and 2,580 x 1,944 pixel (SpeedXT Core 5). When maximum resolution is not required, even higher frame rates of 30fps and 45fps respectively are possible.
Thanks to the 2-3 fold enhancement of the live image speed in combination with high resolution, specimens can be focused and positioned easily and quickly – a clear advantage in the analysis of moving objects and routine work in laboratories.
Exposure times up to 180s ensure optimum captured images, also under low-light conditions. The maximum possible colour depth is 36 bit. In combination with C-Mount connection, the cameras can be easily and rapidly connected to any microscope, computer or notebook via the USB 2.0 interface.
The cameras are supplied with ProgRes CapturePro image capture software, which can be installed quickly and easily. ProgRes CapturePro offers extensive functionalities, an intuitive user interface and Windows 7 compatibility (64-bit). Registered users benefit from regular and free of charge software updates.
Four product lines of ProgRes digital microscope cameras are presently available: ProgRes CMOS cameras, ProgRes CCD routine cameras, ProgRes CCD research cameras and the ProgRes CCD SpeedXT Core cameras.
