The new KoPa AIR offers both WiFi and USB live image output with up to 5.0 megapixel USB resolution, and live (40 FPS) streaming WiFi at 1280 x 960 resolution. The camera has a full suite of auto and manual controls in the USB software as well as the free, downloadable KoPa Vision App. The camera works well in USB mode, and really excels in its WiFi capability.
Controls & Operation
On-camera control consists of a switch on the back (Off/USB/WiFi) which places the unit into USB or WiFi mode. After downloading the App, it is a process of connecting your mobile device to the Kopa network in the WiFi settings on your device. The antenna is internally-located for security and to optimize the WiFi signal performance in industrial environments.
USB output operates via a user-friendly, Windows-only software suite that includes measuring software among a host of other features. WiFi output operates via a free, downloadable App. The refresh rate ranges from 15fps at 2592 x 1944 (maximum resolution) to 40fps at 1280 x 960.
The camera features a standard C-mount interface to fit any microscope with a C-mount adapter. In addition, the camera has a tripod mount on the base, allowing for use as a stand-alone imaging device (with a C-mount standard macro or zoom lens fitted). As a major upgrade over the C500W, the KoPa AIR camera also features a 5000mAh lithium Ion battery, capable of operating 8 hours on a full charge.
Kopa Cam Software
The software offers a comprehensive range of features including measuring software, drawing tools and annotation. Adjustable parameters include white balance, exposure, saturation, brightness, contrast, sharpness and backlight compensation among others. The App has simple touch screen buttons with both still and video capability as in USB mode. Image format include: jpg, png, bmp and pdf. NOTE: This software is not MAC compatible.
