Brand New for 2014 - USB 3.0
The new OptixCam Summit D3K2 Series 3.1MP digital microscope camera introduces SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology to the world of digital microscopy. Faster data transfer and more efficient power consumption make for an efficient and versatile imaging solution for educators, life science researchers, healthcare professionals, and many other professional disciplines. Windows PC users benefit from easy-to-use feature-rich software, accurate color, clarity and image detail, while USB 3.0 data transfer maximizes productivity and user engagement.
Advantages of USB 3.0
USB 3.0, also known as SuperSpeed™ USB, is the latest generation of USB technology and delivers several key performance benefits. For example, USB 3.0 transfers data up to ten times faster than USB 2.0, resulting in quicker transfer of large image or video files and greater workflow efficiency. This is ideal for data-streaming applications found in the research lab or biology classroom. It also does away with the power drain common to USB2.0, resulting in less power used and longer battery life in laptops, tablets and peripherals.
Summit K2 Series Features
The Summit K2 series camera bring affordable digital microscopy to a wide range of documentation demands of routine life science, industrial and educational environments. Built around the proven Aptina MT9T001 CMOS color sensor, they share a broad dynamic range, progressive scan and 12-bit parallel resolution for accurate color reproduction and optimal image quality. All SK2 series cameras are CE and FCC certified.
All Summit K2 microscope cameras share a rugged aluminum alloy body fitted with different size Aptina CMOS sensors depending on the model. Advanced documentation and measuring software is included along with a C-mount adapter with 23mm smooth bore and 0.5X reducing lens to more closely match the captured image with the eyepiece view. Optional focusing lenses, calibration slide and 30mm and 30.5mm collars are available.
The included Windows-based K2View software creates a complete imaging solution with intuitive camera controls, image capture and advanced options like annotation, geometric measuring and storage in JPG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, PCX AND TARGA format. The software also includes auto white balance, color enhancement, anti-flicker and other benefits. TWAIN and DirectX plug-ins are also included on the installation CD and are independent of the main driver, allowing discreet control of the camera for these applications. PLEASE NOTE: This software is not MAC compatible.
