Product Description

AU-X-32C-CCD (Color)

The 32 megapixel AU-X-32C pixel shifting camera, offers incredible flexibility in capturing images at 2, 8, 16, and 32 megapixel resolution.

Using the patented DeltaVu™ technology, each CCD pixel captures full chromatic information, resulting in increased color resolution with no degradation. The AU-X-32C is the first pixel shifting camera to utilize the highly sensitive SONY ICX274 sensor. Its relatively low cost makes it an affordable tool for clinical, life and material sciences where megapixel resolution, color accuracy, and light sensitivity are essential.

Live video preview provides for real-time focus, while auto exposure and auto white balance help efficiently capture your optimal image. Software control provides exposures from 67us through to 2 seconds. An intuitive user application provides camera control, while full integration to popular third-party imaging applications is available through our TWAIN drivers. The USB digital interface ensures a simple plug-and-play installation – and one standard cable minimizes camera clutter. No framegrabber is required.

Every INFINITY AU camera includes INFINITY ANALYZE software for advanced camera control, image processing, measuring and annotation, and is supported by an experienced team of technical support and imaging experts.

We understand your imaging needs and are here to help you get the most out of your camera

Performance Features

  • 32 megapixel resolution is achieved through shifting a color or monochrome sensor with a 1616X1216 pixel array
  • Users will have the flexibility of choosing between 2, 8, 16 and 32 megapixel resolution on capture, taking full advantage of their microscope optics
  • Highly sensitive, low noise CCD with remarkable color quality for the most demanding applications
