Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) October 20, 2006
Scientific Vision Systems (SVS), one of the leading distributors of medical and professional video equipment, announced today that it has been appointed as distributor for the Zarbeco line of cameras. Unlike competitive scientific and inspection cameras, each Zarbeco camera comes with its own drivers and connects to any Windows 2000 or later computer via USB 2.0 interface. Each camera also comes with its own video toolbox. Simply install and start capturing images immediately.
The extremely compact, high-resolution color cameras can capture either still or video images. One of the key applications for the cameras is in the field of pathology where users will appreciate the compact size, high resolution, and high sensitivity of the camera. It’s lower cost without the need of additional costly tools and accessories versus other scientific cameras makes Zarbeco an especially popular choice.
Another important application for the cameras is in forensic sciences to document evidence and for evidentiary identification. Experts delivering testimony or capturing their studies on video can use the video toolbox to highlight key points in the field of view, much like John Madden uses the telestrator to highlight key segments of the action on the football field during NFL broadcasts.
Inspection applications in manufacturing environments provide a third outstanding environment for Zarbeco cameras. In critical QC applications, the video software included with the Zarbeco cameras, called Video ToolBox™, allows users to immediately conduct measurements via live or still images and capture images from live or still video. QC managers can highlight a portion of the video to detail and/or measure a critical performance parameter.
The Video ToolBox ™ is the plug-and-play way to instantly display and capture video images on your desktop or laptop computer. Video Toolbox allows you to capture a single image, a movie, a time-lapse sequence, or capture the image directly into your favorite image-editing software for enhancement or annotation. Users can also print or email images without leaving the program.
The Zarbeco camera line consists of three standard models; the ZC-105, ZC-205, and ZC-305. The primary distinction is the resolution based on the CMOS sensor in each of the three cameras. Respectively, the three models provide resolutions of 1280 x 1024 pixels, 1600 x 1200 pixels, and 2048 x 1536 pixels. The Videolink™ included with each camera automatically converts composite and svideo from analog cameras to USB 2.0 (digital format) and includes the same video toolbox used by the cameras.
Because all three models of Zarbeco cameras are powered from the USB 2.0 port, they are also ideal for remote applications since they can be completely powered from a laptop. System requirements include: Windows 2000/XP, an available USB 2.0 port, DirectX 8.1 or greater, Pentium III 1.5 GHz or faster, 256 MB of Free Memory, and Video card with 32+ MB of video RAM, and minimum resolution of 1024 x 768 at 16-bit (65,000 colors).
