ProgRes C14

Highest resolution and ultra-long exposure are only two of the ProgRes C14's benefits. The latest model in the successfull ProgRes series is based on the technical know-how of the well-proven ProgRes 3012 camera. The developing process finally has resulted in a easy to handle digital camera that satisfies all demands from the microscopist's point of view - form performance to handling.

Resolution
Due to JENOPTIK's well proven Microscanning technique the basic resolution of the 1.3 megapixel Sony CCD is increased up to 12.1 megapixels - real image information, true RGB colors, no interpolation. Particularly dedicated for capturing finest object structures and details. Nine programmable resolutions offer the appropriate frame size for all possible applications. In contrast to other manufacturers' multi-shot cameras you can fine-tune the ProgRes C14 Microscanning by a single mouse click. This ensures optimum image quality under all ambient conditions.

Sensor Cooling and Dynamic Range
The capsuled CCD sensor is sealed dust- and airtight and cooled by a two-step cooling mechanism: a combination of peltier cooling and an additional fan together with sophisticated capturing software allow for integration times up to 10 minutes (!). This makes the ProgRes C14 the ideal tool for all low-light applications such as flourescence microscopy.
The dynamic range of 66dB with a color depth of 42bits RGB registers brilliant and finest color nuances. The image result is an optimum prerequisite for all possible output media from screen to print.

Interfaces
A modern IEEE1394 FireWire interface offers speed and flexibility: the adaption of a digital camera has never been so easy. You just need to plug in a single cable to make the ProgRes C14 ready for operation. Its 400Mbit/s FireWire® interface connects the ProgRes C14 to a desktop computer or a laptop - power supply included. Hot plugging and OHCI compatibility make the ProgRes C14 to your first choice when it comes to integrating a digital camera into you laboratory equipment.
A C-mount connector is used to attach the little digital camera to a microscope using a standard TV-adaptor. You certainly also can attach standard C-mount lenses for using your ProgRes C14 for high-resolution macro-photography.

Software
The ProgRes C14 is delivered with camera software for Macintosh and Windows based computers. For the Windows 98/SE, ME, NT4.0 and 2000 platform the camera software is a TWAIN plugin that integrates neatlessly into most image processing applications. The Macintosh OS 9.x software is a stand-alone application. A starter application for use as a Photoshop plug-in as well as OS X compatibility will follow later this year.
A fast live-image, automatic exposure and easy white balancing are just a few of the ProgRes C14's software features that facilitate your everyday work. From image capture and color adjustment up to image storing: the camera software provides helpfull tools that help you capturing best possible images.
