The SMT 100 Digital Video Microscope is a research grade video microscope system that can be completely powered by a laptop computer. The 1.3 megapixel color camera provides four times the resolution of a standard video camera with excellent color reproduction and high sensitivity over a wide range of magnifications. The standard zoom lens provides a 9 — 65x magnification range (other magnification ranges available). The variable intensity LED ring light provides uniform illumination in the laboratory, while the PC powered light bar provides bright white lighting when out in the field. The SMT 100 is DirectShow and TWAIN compliant, so it is compatible with hundreds of other imaging programs which support those formats.
Video ToolBox software is included, providing an easy-to-use interface for image and movie capture, advanced labeling, annotation and measurement. With Video ToolBox, everything happens on the live image – making observation faster and more efficient. Labels, markers, freehand notes, time stamps and measurements are all seen right on the live image. Hit the capture button and the user gets a permanent record for archiving. Anything that is seen on the screen can also be recorded as a movie so the users can document the activities they perform or make training movies for other users.
In addition, Video ToolBox supports plug-ins which allow for additional features to be added later. Plug-ins include automatic object counting and measurement tool, and FocusLock – our focus enhancement technology to produce focused images of objects that are deeper than the depth of focus of the video imaging system.
Video ToolBox works with GPS receivers to automatically tag images with the precise location and time in which they were captured. An excellent option when on-site documentation is critical.
