Version 2.1 of the camera control and image capture software for ProgRes microscope cameras by Jenoptik Laser, Optik, Systeme comes with extended measurement functionality, optimised time-lapse image capturing and comfortable handling.
The new software offers more measurement functions, which enables an unlimited number of measurements such as line, ellipse, angle, rectangle, polygon and freeform in both the live and the captured image. Font, size and colour are freely definable.
Measurements and results are stored in a separate reproducible layer. The layer is assigned to the individual image and may be drawn directly into it. In addition, the measurement data is ready for export into analysis software.
The software can give users carrying out time-lapse experiments an even more efficient workflow. Single images and video sequences may be recorded as fast as possible or with fixed intervals, and with a delay time, and time-stamp protocol files provide an easy follow-up of the captured sequences. With these improvements, ProgRes cameras can achieve even higher frame rates for capturing image sequences or videos.
The user can flip the image or rotate it in 90° steps. This feature is especially useful in macroscopic applications where the image is captured with the same orientation as seen in the ocular.
