IR-1000 Infrared CCD Monochrome Video Camera

The newly designed IR-1000 real-time camera (30 frames/sec.) offers enhanced sensitivity across the entire visible and near IR spectrum, with a 5X increase in sensitivity at 900nm.  The extended IR response allows deeper penetration into tissue sections (e.g. brain slices), while the high sensitivity enables the user to detect images even in lower light conditions.

To provide optimum contrast, the IR-1000 camera now includes electronics that automatically and instantaneously readjust when a scene changes.  This innovative design is especially useful when changing magnification levels, specimens, and/or lighting levels.  The camera’s new real-time edge enhancement feature sharpens the edges and delivers a clearer picture by resolving fine details in the image.

With a convenient C-mount, the IR-1000 is widely used in a “live” mode connected directly to a monitor.  An optional computer interface board is also available.  Dage-MTI’s new real-time camera is ideal for applications such as electrophysiology, infrared differential interference contrast (IR-DIC), failure analysis, forensics and semiconductor inspection.
