MicroManager

    The software product “MicroManager” is designed and developed specially for the microscopes from Optoelectronic Systems and can be used for viewing of camera video streams, recording, measurement and analysis of the images.

Functionality:

 

Supported cameras:

Basler ace, IDS eye, EsExperts

Several cameras supported:

yes (no more than two, switchable)

Modes    of operation:

snap, live video

Camera settings:

(auto)exposure, brightness, contrast, saturation, gamma, R-G-B gain

Frame transformation:

vertical flip, horisontal flip

Zoom:

smooth, up to 200%

Fullscreen mode:

yes

Overlaying layers on video stream:

small cross in the centre, big cross across the whole frame, objectives scale (5x, 10x, 20x, 50x, 100x)

Filters:

Laplas, threshold, leveling, Sobel, sharpness, invert

3D viewing of a frame:

yes

Histogram:

yes

Measurements:

static, dynamic (based on stage encoders)

Static* measurement tools:

line (the distance between two points), multiline (the length of a polygonal line), polygon (a square of a closed shape), circle (radius, square), angle (by three points)

* - Static measurements are the measurements made without frame analysis.

Dynamic** measurement tools:

line (the distance between two points), parallel lines ((horizontal / vertical) are the average of a multitude of parallel lines (horizontal / vertical) in a given field), circle (the circle, built on the number of pixels found in a given field)

** - Dynamic measurements are the measurements made on image analysis using mathematical algorithms able to apply averaging, blurring and integration of the results. The results are remeasured for each incoming frame of the video stream.

Section profile:

intensity and  its derivative on one chart

Calibration tool:

yes

Correction of measurements:

yes

Frame saving:

clear frame / frame with measurements

Output formats:

BMP, JPG, PNG, TIFF

Printing:

clear frame / frame with measurements

Video recording:

yes

Pause while recording:

yes

Video saving:

frames in a video file / in a folder

Additional operations for the microscopes with motorized stages:
