BETHESDA, Md., March 10, 2011 — Media Cybernetics has announced the release of Image-Pro Insight Version 8.0 image acquisition, processing, measurement and reporting software. It includes an updated user interface and ease-of-use enhancements. Intelligent new features include combined live tiling and live extended depth of field (EDF), live measurements, automatic calibration and reporting tools. Live tiling and live EDF make it easy to acquire large, tiled images and highly focused images – live – without an automated stage or focus drive. Users can create focused, tiled images in one sitting while manually moving their specimens around. The new version provides manual distance, angle, best-fit and area measurement tools and introduces Snap-to-Edge “magnetic” measurements that identify object edges to guarantee consistent and fast measurements. The software’s semiautomated Auto Trace draws around an object and determines area measurements with two clicks. All measurements are interactive and easily exported to Microsoft Excel for further analysis. Users have access to a variety of sharing and reporting features. Eight predesigned report templates are included, enabling images and measurement data to be exported to pdf, Microsoft Word and other file formats. New tools make it easy to save images in low-resolution, high-resolution or video formats. Simple export to Microsoft PowerPoint automatically creates a slide show with active images. The software offers training and support tools that make it easy to get started. Several free video tutorials demonstrate the software, and customers are welcome to join a free Image-Pro e-mail users’ list to share ideas and tips with others as well as with the company’s team. A free downloadable 30-day trial version is available at the company’s website.
