VIVID Digital Video Microscope (VIVID)


Vivid Digital Video Microscope is a research grade video microscope system that can be completely powered by a laptop computer. The 2.0 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 are available) with detents to produce highly repeatable zoom settings for precise measurement.  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 included Video software provides an easy-to-use interface for image and movie capture, advanced labeling, annotation and advanced measurement tools. Video software also supports plugins such as Focus Lock for extending depth-of-focus. Even add GPS to automatically record the exact location where an image is captured.
