Whitepaper of High Content Image Fusion
March 14, 2023, Guangzhou
High Content Image Fusion (HCIF) uses the most cutting-edge image processing algorithm and real-time fusion technology, aiming to break through the limitation of insufficient depth of field under high-magnification objective lens, and can obtain a larger depth of field when adjusting the focal length, so as to obtain a clearer than real-time single-frame image. It is a robust and competitive software function available in Windows software Pixit Pro and App for smart devices.
HCIF function supports LANOPTIK 12MP and higher resolution cameras.
HCIF function works very well when using biological microscope and metallurgical microscope. As the coarse and fine focus adjustment of stereo microscopes always come with a relatively large Z-axis offset, this is a great challenge to the algorithm of real-time fusion. Therefore, we recommend LANOPTIK cameras with rear-focusing knob to work with stereo microscopes and can also obtain perfect high-content images.
Cameras with rear-focusing mechanism are available in two versions: manual knob and motorized control. The version of motorized control can be operated by software or App. Effective stroke: 15mm.
The maximum depth of field depends on the parameters of the objective lens used.
The current algorithm cannot fully distinguish whether a object in the field of view is required for observation, and some actual impurities may also appear in the fused image.
In the video, The image on the left i is the real-time image under the microscope, and the image on the right is the real-time fusion image. Different from the traditional image stacking technology, HCIF not only achieves instant fusion, but also optimizes the image quality through intelligent algorithms. You only need to fine-tune the focus to get a fused image in real time.
