HD4000K-M - 4K, 8MP, HDMI, Ethernet/LAN, and USB3.0 Dual Channel with 11.8" Monitor Real-time Live Stitching and EDF

The HD4000K-M is our full featured 8 MP camera with LAN, USB 3.0, HDMI capability with a 1/3” Sony IMX183C CMOS chip.  A standard C-mount adapter with a 0.3X C-mount adapter (MA151/35/03) is needed to attach it to any standard Meiji Techno America Trinocular Microscope. The HD4000K-M features a full 8MP 4K (3840x2160), HDMI: 30fps@3840x2160, USB 3.0: 25fps@3840x2160, Ethernet: 30fps 3840x2160 resolution, which provides high fidelity images with a refresh rate of 30fps-frames per second when connected via HDMI, so there is absolutely no lag in the live video feed when moving your specimen or part. Images are save as a JPG/TIFF. USB 3.0: JPG/PNG/TIFF/DICOM and Ethernet: JPG/PNG/TIFF/DICOM.

The 11.8” High Definition display is used with the provided USB 2.0 mouse, with this the user can access menus that provide all the features of the camera such as exposure, white balance, color control (red or blue), gamma, brightness, sharpness, saturation, denoise, color temperature plus allows the user to save images and videos directly on the full SD card due to the onboard operating system. You can flip the image horizontally, vertically, do a split screen where-in one side of the monitor is a live image and the other half is the captured image. You can also digitally increase/decrease the zoom if needed if your stereo system has reached its magnification potential, this will give you the added digital magnification needed. You can also superimpose a cross-line reticle directly on your live image, first click gives you a red line second click gives you a green line, and the third click omits the crossline. The live video and still shots can be saved directly on the removable full SD card for subsequent image capture. All this is achieved without the need for a PC. You may also connect directly to any monitor or TV with a HDMI port for a wider view if necessary.  All USB 2.0, HDMI, SD card, power supply is all supplied. You can also attach a wireless mouse if you choose to go wireless with a third party mouse.

The HD4000K-M can be mounted directly to any HDMI monitor or PC via USB 3.0: Connect to a computer or U disc. LAN: Connect to the internet, USB 2.0: Connects a mouse. HDMI connectivity and can be used with the provided USB 2.0 mouse, with this the user can access menus that provide all the features of the camera such as exposure, white balance, color control (red or blue), gamma, brightness, sharpness, saturation, denoise, color temperature plus allows the user to save images and videos directly on the full SD card due to the onboard operating system.

Meiji Techno's New HD4000K Camera

The ideal camera pixel refers to the pixel size that is just big enough to resolve the optical resolution of a microscope. But in order to fully performs the optical efficiency of microscope, the real adopted camera pixel size should be smaller than ideal. The smaller pixel size, the higher resolution. Shown as below diagram: take the incident wavelength of 450nm for example, the adopted camera pixel size should be smaller than 2.8um pixel size which corresponds to 4 multiples of minimum objective lens. Under same 2/3 FOV, the actual resolution of a 1080P (1920 ×1080) camera is only equal to 4.6um(=8.8mm/1920), and it barely meet the demands of 40X and 60X objective lens,while 4K (3640×2160) is about 2.3um(=8.8mm/3640), totally meeting the demands of all objective lens and making the optical lens work at its best efficiency. No matter it is equipped with 4K or 1080P monitor, it can get higher resolution results.




Much Stronger 4K Image Signal Processor


The upgrade of 4K resolution requires camera to process a larger amount of data. Generally it is not easy to perfectly reveal 4K image, but HD4000K ISP performs a very good professional level. It not only can accurately determine the exposure intensity of complex light scenes, but also accurately restore difficult colors such as blue, purple and pink, and maintain a high speed of 30 frames per second.




Embedded-type functionality upgrade


Based on previous generation of HD1500 camera embedded software, three utility functions are added on HD4000K to continuously optimize your shortcut operation experience

.



USB 3.0+Capture2.0 Professional Analysis Software


The USB 3.0 channel on HD4000K can realize high speed transmission at 25 fps@4k full resolution. It contains the same perfect color reproduction and complete parameter control functions as USB 3.0 cameras from Meiji. Meantime, loaded with Capture 2.0 professional image analysis software, containing shooting, processing, measurement, report etc. self-defined function modules, it also allows users to have efficient and stable operation experience when perform advanced functions like “Live Stitching” and “Live EDF”.

Live Stitching

When moving the loading platform, the software automatically completes the image stitching, which can be accurately and quickly done under different magnifications and any angle.



Live EDF

When turning the focus ring to shoot different DOF points, the software automatically generates large DOF images, and the feature points of different focal planes are clearly displayed on the same plane!

Remote Control, Separate Human and Experimental Devices

The HD4000K can meet the needs of many medical laboratories or clean workshops that often need to separate operators from operating areas to avoid unnecessary contact or contamination: only by connecting an observer with the HD4000K and a computer with the Capture 2.0 software to Internet, you can use Capture 2.0 software to remotely control all features of the camera, and the HD4000k can still deliver high speeds of up to 30 FPS @4K full resolution, even remotely, without aff!ecting the experience.





Live interaction, share videos with multiple people in real time


The rapid development of internet technology makes communication more convenient and efficient, and the need of huge resources into multimedia interactive platform now can be easily done with one camera. HD4000K camera support network standard transmission protocol, and can be connected with the third party live platforms like Ding Talk, Kwai and Tik Tok etc. to set up the internet conference, teaching platform, and interact images with multiple people in real time.

 

NOTE:
① USB 3.0 : can perform voice interaction under the help of computer audio function.
② LAN : No simultaneous voice interaction supported since no audio interface on camera.

Three Ways in Image Capturing

By connecting the camera to different data interface, the image process is completely separated.

MODE 1

If the camera connected directly to a monitor via HDMI to a external TV or the provided 12.8” monitor, the built-in software takes pictures and saved to the USB stick via the USB 3.0 port on top of the camera.

If you pull out the USB stick, the image won't be saved to a PC or network drive even if the camera connected to a router by GigE port.

MODE 2

If the camera is connected directly to a PC via USB 3.0 or USB 2.0, software is installed on the PC and image capture is saved directly on the PC.

MODE 3

If the camera is connected via LAN port to a network.  One can go to the designated computer the IP address is pointed to and on this particular PC one can view, annotate and capture still shots and live video from the designated PC.

MODE 4

If you want to save the image to a network drive just like NAS. We recommend you to connect the camera to router and open PC software from the PC. Just set up the image save path to the NAS. This must be done by the latest Capture2.2.1. As long as the PC is in the local network, you can access the camera by Capture2.2.1 to capture images. The camera supports maximum 5 users to access the camera at the same time.

NOTE: Basically, we can't save images directly from the camera to a network drive.The only way to save images to local network is by using PC software.
