Quick Depth Composition & 3D Display Function

Further Simplified 2-Step Operation

Objects with multiple planes of focus could never be observed clearly and completely in focus at one time.

Objects with multiple planes of focus could never be observed clearly and completely in focus at one time.

Observation of a fully focused image and a 3D display of the target is impossible with conventional optical microscopes.

Even when the target has an uneven surface, a fully-focused image can be obtained instantaneously by compiling images of different focus positions. The 3D display allows surface shape observation from various angles. When the Z-axis electric stage is used, this quick 3D image can be displayed easily by just pressing the console button twice.

Accurate D.F.D.method

Accurate D.F.D.method

We have adopted a new algorithm that uses the fine changes in texture to estimate height data. Building on our depth-up feature, whereby a fully focused image can be constructed from a small number of images, the D.F.D. method facilitates the accurate construction of a 3D model allowing for versatile observation in three dimensions.

D.F.D.=Depth from Defocus

D.F.D.=Depth from Defocus

The D.F.D. method is the process by which the VHX can 1.) Compile a completely in-focus image, or 2.) Generate data to compile a 3D model. The D.F.D. method analyzes the level of contrast, or focus at each level of the target. By using the degree of blurring, the D.F.D. method can calculate height information for each pixel, thereby enabling the compilation of a 3D model or a completely in-focus image. Even if a pixel cannot be captured in perfect focus, a calculation is made to generate height data. The D.F.D. method exponentially increases the efficiency of a 3D construction.

Auto Adjust function to prevent edge displacement during depth composition

Auto Adjust function to prevent edge displacement during depth composition

Edge displacement and image blurring due to camera-shake while capturing an image with a non-telecentric lens are automatically corrected, and a comprehensive, completely focused image is constructed. This method is at least five times faster and more accurate than conventional position correction methods, and obtains accurate information even for easily distorted, low magnification areas.

By combining our Glare Removal and Quick 3D Display functions, even highly reflective objects can be used for a quick 3D compilation.

By combining our Glare Removal and Quick 3D Display functions, even highly reflective objects can be used for a quick 3D compilation.

Once applicable only to still images, we’ve now enabled the glare removal function to be used on live images and 3D display. By removing the reflectivity, the accurate 3D display of the target surface becomes possible.
