Product News: Jenoptik Presents New ProgRes® SpeedXT core Microscope Cameras

27 Apr 2010

The Digital Imaging business unit of the Jenoptik Optical Systems Division has now added two USB camera types to its ProgRes® CCD microscope camera range: ProgRes® SpeedXT core 3 and ProgRes® SpeedXT core 5. These product novelties are the first to feature Jenoptik’s innovative SpeedXT core technology.

The impressive live image speed of 17 fps (SpeedXT core 3) and 13 fps (SpeedXT core 5) at the maximum possible resolution of 2080 x 1542 pixel (SpeedXT core 3) and 2580 x 1944 pixel (SpeedXT core 5) is the decisive advantage of the ProgRes® SpeedXT core 3 and 5 cameras. When maximum resolution is not requried, even higher frame rates of 30 resp. 45 fps are possible.

Users benefit from the optimised workflow: thanks to the 2-3 fold enhancement of the live image speed in combination with the high resolution, specimens can be focused and positioned more easily and quickly – a clear advantage in the analysis of moving objects and routine work in laboratories. Exposure times up to 180 s ensure optimum captured images, also under low-light conditions. The maximum possible color depth is 36 bit.

Fielding this new product range, Jenoptik is meeting the increased requirements of a large user community in the industrial and scientific areas demanding perfect image quality in connection with outstanding speed.
