Live Tiling and Live EDF Module for Image-Pro Plus Image Analysis Software. This software enables extended depth of focus and image mosaicing facilities with the Image-Pro Plus siftware package.
Image-Pro Plus 7.0 offers the optional Live Tiling and Live Extended Depth of Field (EDF) module, which makes it easy to acquire large, tiled images and beautifully focused images – live – without an automated stage or focus drive. Minimizing the number of steps required to tile images or created focused images, Live Tiling and Live EDF allows you to acquire the images you need, within minutes.
Live Tiling lets you expand the field of your captured image, using a manual X-Y stage. This tool makes it easy for you to tile and stitch adjacent fields – live – without an automated stage. Simply move your stage and watch the image field of view grow until you have covered your entire specimen. All you need is a microscope, manual X-Y stage and a camera with Image-Pro drivers.
Live Tiling Details:
• No motor stage or focus drive needed
• Works with any Image-Pro Color or Mono camera/driver
• Obtains a much higher resolution image than using a low mag objective
Live EDF allows you to capture a fully-focused image for specimens whose thickness exceeds the microscope depth of field. Available for any manual microscope, Live EDF solves the depth of field issues that often plague Entomologist, Botanists, and Parts and Material manufacturers.
