A digital microscope is a combination of a traditional optical microscope, digital multimedia, and digital processing technology. Digital microscopy imaging technology includes optical components for microscopic imaging, data acquisition component to record images produced by digital video devices, CMOS, CCD, digital cameras wherein these images are transferred to the computer storage device by graphics card interface or USB interface. The core component of digital microscopy is software control for image capture, processing, and real-time measurement to improve image quality.
Recent advancement of digital microscopes includes installation of online image acquisition, processing, and analysis systems software. Higher resolution, large field view, increased magnification, real-time view, 2D/3D image display are the main features of the digital microscope. There are both portable and desktop digital microscopes available in the global market. The sequential process of an Image sensor, analog signal, pixel conversion, digital signal and digital operation to display is driven principle in Digital Microscope. Advanced features include live imaging and snapshot, patented image analysis software, user-friendly interface and Wi-Fi. Different levels and various categories of digital microscopes include microscopes with built-in USB cameras requiring a PC (or MAC), HDMI, Wi-Fi, video or SXGA cameras and tablet PC with touch screen controls to see the live image.
