The ultimate in HD imaging.


Dage-MTI’s 4K-UHD is the ultimate live display microscopy camera for brightfield imaging. The 4K-UHD offers full, ultra high definition, 3840×2160 output (up to 60fps) with 1600 TV lines of resolution! Small features at low magnification that could not be resolved satisfactorily using other HD cameras may now be resolved with the Dage 4K-UHD

Like the family of HD cameras Dage offers, the 4K-UHD is preprogrammed for perfect color by critical adjustments of 6 hues – not just red, green and blue, but yellow, cyan and magenta as well. The 4K-UHD utilizes 3 CMOS chips with pixel offset technology to increase spatial resolution without sacrificing real time, up to 60fps for live streaming. This fast frame rate enables the operator to move samples without smear lag or jitter. Real-time, 60fps video streaming also allows effortless focus and specimen placement for more efficient slide reviews.

The 4K-UHD automatically adjusts to changes in light intensity. No more fumbling with the intensity controls of your microscope or camera. 1 button white balance and preprogrammed scene files makes using the 4K-UHD simple to use. Operate the camera by directly connecting to an Ultra HD monitor via the display port connection without the need for a PC.

When the application demands the ultimate resolution and image quality in an HD camera, The Dage-MTI 4K-UHD is the solution.

Can I use a “standard” HD monitor with the UHD-4K camera?

Yes, but you will not see the increased resolution the camera can produce

What is the resolution of the new UHD-4K camera?

The new UHD-4K has an output resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. This translates to 1600 TV lines of resolution.

Why is it harder to get a good image at low magnification than high magnification?

The short answer is that specimen details appear closer together at low magnification. To resolve these structures, a higher resolution camera is recommended. If you image a great deal using 2x and 4x objectives, you may want to consider our 3 chip HD-336U or even the ultra HD UHD-4K to resolve structure at these low magnifications.
