- Dage-MTI designed and built specialized cameras for Lawrence Livermore National labs through partnership with Rolls Royce Nuclear. The cameras are used in the fusion energy creation process.
- Dage-MTI was awarded the 2010 Chanute Prize for Team Innovation from the Society of Innovation. The RV-DR high definition capture product designed by Dage-MTI was submitted for consideration to the Society by Chancellor James Dworkin of Purdue University North Central. The Society of Innovation was created to recognize and honor the story of the Octave Chanute experiments of 1896. The result of his work was the spark of ingenuity that proved successful for the Wright Brothers seven years later.
- Dage-MTI announced new line of LCD monitors.
- Dage-MTI designed and built specialized IR laser spot cameras for Eglin Air Force Base. These environmentally protected infrared cameras for smart bomb testing.
- Dage-MTI live video technology is used for water analysis & management. The cameras and monitors were critical to the video-enhanced phase contrast live imaging and display of ultra-thin “sheaths” which cannot normally be seen visually, but which surround the common algae known as Anabaena.
- XL16 cooled cameras selected for use in DNA analysis systems.
- Dage-MTI announces HR-90 monitor selected for Raytheon project. Raytheon selected the HR-90 monochrome monitor for a special long-range surveillance project. The application required a monitor configured for underscan to ensure ranging and symbology information were viewable. The communication with Raytheon to establish the modification required for the HR-90 monitor is an example of Dage-MTI’s willingness to work with the customer and provide a solution for their application.
- Dage-MTI announced its high resolution Excel series digital camera (XLMC) was used to capture the image used on the front cover of the trade journal, Microscopy Today (January 2007, Volume 15, Number 1). The images of cultured fibroblasts were achieved using the XLMC color camera (2048×2048).
- Dage-MTI was featured in the Northwest Indiana Business Quarterly, Fall 2006. The article presents an overview of the changes in technology the company has experienced and explores the transition from hand-stuffed circuit boards to the utilization of state-of-the-art circuit boards using surface-mount components.
- Dage-MTI was featured on the TV News program “Inside Indiana Business with Gerry Dick” on PBS. The TV show took viewers behind the scenes of the company, the nation’s oldest video camera manufacturer, in a special weekend edition. The TV News program covered the manufacturing process of video cameras and changes in production technology. Technicians were shown manufacturing cameras using high efficiency methods. The program also featured the uses of video cameras in biomedical and industrial applications. One segment showed examination of tissue specimens with video.
- Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels has honored Dage-MTI with the Governor’s Hall Century Business Award. Dage-MTI, received the award in recognition of the company’s 50 years of operation and involvement in the community. Dage-MTI is a manufacturer of analog and digital video microscope cameras and monitors for science, industry and government. It is the oldest video camera manufacturer in the United States.
- Purdue University President, Martin Jischke, accompanied by Victor L. Lechtenberg, Purdue Vice Provost for Engagement, and others toured Dage-MTI, praising the company as an “asset to our state.” Dage was selected as a stop on President Jischke’s state-wide tour for its advanced technologies in design and manufacture of digital cameras.
