Add Light Field Imaging Capabilities To Your Microscope



InSight allows realtime 3D acquisition using a scanless method based on a proprietary light field technique. InSight is a flexible imaging device adding light field imaging capabilities including one shot 3D acquisition, parallax view and digital refocusing as well as fast Z-scanning capabilities

InSight is supplied with GUI software QTImage. An optional API/ SDK is provided for microscopy automated systems with comprehensive 3D acquisition tools.

Scanless Mode (Light Field)

Z range and Z resolution are objective dependant
Z Range = 100 x Objective Depth of Field
Z Resolution = Z Range / 10

Scanning Mode

Z range and Z step are objective dependant
Z Range = 16mm / (G_Obj)2
Z Step = Z Range / 2000
