users of the real estate-economical 3U CompactPCI hardware
format, there's a new version of the popular low-cost Matrox
Metero II/Multi-Channel frame grabber for you-useful for
both monochrome and component RGB color imagings. Rugged
enough for use in harsh industrial environments, or deeply
embedded applications, this board can work with analog interlaced
or progressive frame scan RGB cameras, double-speed two-channel
analog progressive frame scan monochrome cameras,or multiple
standard monochrome cameras. Hardware trigger support for
machine vision apps is available. The Matrox Video Interface
ASIC (VIA) is employed to manage real-time acquisition into
on-board memory. Software is available separately.

MICROSCOPE OPTIMIZATION SOFTWARE
new AxioVision "Autofocus" software module has
been designed to increase reliability of microscopic examination
documentation, for both bio and materials research. The
module automatically optimizes the scope and digital camera
settings to the sharpest possible image of the specimen,
an especially useful capability when the imaging is automated
or must be reproducible, or occurs under time lapse conditions-such
as fluorescence imaging/photography. The optimum focal position
is itself determined by image analysis. The software is
useful in reflected, transmitted, and incident light.
