Super HDR for Fast Acquisition of High Quality Images

Olympus introduces new options for further improvement of image quality and ergonomics of the DSX industrial opto-digital microscope systems including Super HDR, anti-halation and improved 3D imaging.

With the first update of the DSX industrial microscope systems, Olympus has introduced a series of options to increase image quality and ergonomics of their devices.

The new Super HDR software has been developed to enhance the standard high dynamic range (HDR) function on the DSX100, DSX500 and DSX500i which combines several images taken at different exposures in order to accurately correct brightness variations on sample surfaces.

The unique Super HDR function improves signal-to-noise ratio and increases acquisition speed of images. It comes in two modes; fast mode uses a speed of up to 12 frames per second to provide smooth imaging even when focusing the sample or moving the stage, while fine mode provides sharper definition with a higher signal-to-noise ratio.

With these enhancements Olympus sets a new benchmark for high-resolution image quality.

Exclusive to the DSX100, new anti-halation adaptors use polarized lighting to control reflection from the LED illumination ring.

This eliminates artefacts derived from the light reflection at glossy surfaces and opens up new possibilities in color reproduction, making the detailed detection of specific areas for analysis as clear as possible.

Furthermore, the DSX100 is now compatible with the DSX-UFSSU motorized stage. This enables the operator to take advantage of the full range of ergonomic automation features, such as the Macro map function which increases convenience and ease-of-use by indicating the actual observation position on the specimen in a separate low magnification view.

Olympus has also made significant improvements to 3D image quality in both the DSX100 and DSX500.

The DSX100 offers highly reliable 3D visualization while the DSX500 now creates superb 3D data which are coming close to the OLS4000 laser measuring microscope system.

These upgrades allow for clear and precise 3D imaging and analysis of complex surface topologies for accurate sample measurements.
