Standalone Camera Controller

Olympus has released a new standalone controller for the 5 megapixel DP26 camera. Using the controller, it is possible to view samples and capture images directly on a monitor screen with no need for a dedicated computer. This means the system can be used to capture images in mere seconds, rather than having to start a PC. Small and lightweight, the unit can be easily transferred between laboratories, takes up very little bench space and provides intuitive control of the DP26 camera's functions. Images can be saved to a USB memory stick via the inbuilt USB port or to a networked drive via Ethernet connection, and can be viewed using the on-screen menu. This expands the benefits of the controller to make it good for intensive or rapid sample browsing, collaborative workflows and prolonged use, especially where there is little space, need or time for running a computer system. The new standalone controller can be positioned for user comfort and allows ultra-fast imaging, without needing to boot up a computer or load dedicated software. This is especially useful for applications such as cell culture and pathology, as well as for microscopes shared by large groups. Using the controller, the camera can be linked directly to a monitor screen, while providing simple and intuitive control of digital zoom, image capture and colour balance. Image and video capture is fast and simple, all at the touch of a single button. With a USB connection, the standalone controller permits storage of videos and images, with exposure settings, magnifications, and other parameters stored for future reference. Images can also be saved to a shared folder on a networked drive via the Ethernet connection.
