Products With Vision At AIA Show

By Hank Russell

BOSTON (May 4) ? with the lights, beeps and blips inside the Hynes Convention Center, it seemed like things at The Vision Show East were happening for a while; actually it was just getting warmed up.

With more than 80 companies in attendance, many of them waited until the conference to premiere some of their latest products.

CCD Sensor

Eastman Kodak Company (Rochester, NY) showed its latest CCD sensor, the KAI-2020M, a 2 million pixel interline transfer CCD image sensor that provides microscopists the ability to capture clear images with a high dynamic range from both bright field illuminated and lowlight level fluorescing specimens. It offers a choice of single or dual output allowing either 15 or 30 f/sec video rate and a fast line dump for sub-sampling at higher frame rates for real-time video imaging.

Going faster is a key requirement,? explained Terry Guy, product marketing manager, Image Sensor Solutions. ?Being able to work with digital still cameras is also a key requirement.?

The KAI-2020M's high spatial resolution and low noise performance allows microscopists to capture the highest quality images under extreme conditions for more accurate analysis and specimen documentation. ?This new sensor is very versatile and has many potential applications for the microscopy market ? from high-end research and analysis projects such as cancer research to image documentation, as well as machine vision applications such as process inspection of semiconductor wafers,? Guy said.
