The IR-1000 real-time (30fps) camera offers enhanced sensitivity across the entire visible and near IR spectrum, with a 5X increase in sensitivity at 900nm. Ideal for visible, IR-DIC and bright fluorescence modes of operation, the IR-1000 utilizes a 1/2″ sensor and is c-mount adaptable. A ten-step grey scale test signal allows the user to quickly and correctly set the contrast and brightness on a monitor. Although this camera is widely used in a live mode connected directly to a monitor, an optional computer interface is available.
The IR-1000 series camera offers two important features: Automatic Contrast and Real-Time Edge Enhancement.
When a scene changes, the Auto Contrast electronics automatically and instantaneously readjust to achieve optimum contrast.
The real-time Edge Enhance function sharpens the edges and delivers a clearer picture by resolving fine details in the image.
Manual control of gain and black is also provided to achieve a specific grey-scale contrast desired by the operator.

At 30fps, there is no perception of “latency” when moving the micropipette in the course of positioning it at the precise location desired on the cell membrane. The movement is natural and is easier to control with no lag introduced by a slower frame refresh rate.
