IRVINE, Calif. May 13, 2008 – Toshiba Imaging Systems Division is partnering with Olympus Canada to offer a new tool for clinical pathology and teaching – the High Definition Synergy-HD Microscope Imaging System.

After testing and evaluating a number of systems, Olympus chose to integrate Toshiba’s new ultra compact IK-HD1 3CCD HDTV camera with its line of clinical microscopes that feature objectives and optics suited for digital imaging.

The system, which includes a high definition, wide screen 42” or 47” 1080p LCD monitor, delivers video imagery in real time, displaying the entire slide at all ROIs and magnifications. Toshiba’s camera and proprietary 3-chip prism block technology offers 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution at 30 frames per second with superb color reproduction, contrast and image detail without binning, image jitter or video lag.  Toshiba.Olympus.jpg


High Definition Synergy-HD Microscope Imaging System

With the new HD format, the microscopy system offers exceptional detail, contrast and brightness even at low 2X / 4X magnifications where clinical screening and margins are performed.  According to Toshiba, the image processing electronics in the HD camera system offers superior signal-to-noise ratio and unprecedented color image detail. 

A wide variety of adjustments, including the creation of custom color matrices and other user settings, are available via the compact camera control unit.

The commercial LCD display has a high refresh rate of 8 ms and broadcast quality HD-SDI video format of 1.4 Gb/s data rate.  With high brightness and 60,000 hours of back light life span, the HD 1080i LCD display offers high contrast images that are viewable from any angle.
 
Depending upon the need, an additional PC with an HD-SDI frame grabber can be added, allowing digital capture of the HD images at full 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution.  The frame grabber allows simultaneous viewing of the microscopy slide image on the LCD monitor, making it ideal for tumor boards and clinical rounds as well as various medical and life science teaching environments.

GLOSSARY
camera
A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
microscope
An instrument consisting essentially of a tube 160 mm long, with an objective lens at the distant end and an eyepiece at the near end. The objective forms a real aerial image of the object in the focal plane of the eyepiece where it is observed by the eye. The overall magnifying power is equal to the linear magnification of the objective multiplied by the magnifying power of the eyepiece. The eyepiece can be replaced by a film to photograph the primary image, or a positive or negative relay...
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
