HR2-USB50X. Proscope HR2 50Xlens, Mac/PC software
Take this camera microscope in your hand and touch it directly onto any object or surface. Then watch the live color video image on the screen and present it to a whole group simultaneously. Just by touching the sample with the internally lit lens tip, you are instantly focusing, illuminating, and magnifying to the screen. STR is the exlusive source for accessories and curriculum including the gooseneck stand, XYZ stage, backlight lamp with Light Blocker, and curriculum and lesson plans which are written by expert teachers and are classroom tested. Not to mention STR's service and reputation.
The ProScope HR2 is unique among our other products because it is the highest resolution USB version available at 2 mega pixels. Capture the best quality images and movies directly to your computer at magnifications from 1x up to 400x (lenses are shared with the Scope On A Rope™ L2 and ProScope Mobile).
The new ProScope HR2 features the new state-of-the-art, Aptina™ imager which was originally made for surveillance, with large pixels that take in more light than other imagers on the market. The Bodelin engineering team customized this imager to allow extensive imaging adjustment and LED intensity control. The most impressive feature is the ability to actually stream true pixels at higher resolutions. The ProScope HR2 is the only digital microscope in the world that can do this. Other imagers stream at 640X480 and only interpolate to simulate higher resolutions. The total effect in the ProScope HR2 is live video that appears to be 4 to 5 megapixels in clarity while only using an actual 2 megapixel imager. The new cobalt black handle says this is a serious tool yet the price point is equal to the previous ProScope HR, which will remain in the product line at a lower cost. The ProScope products are currently used in tens of thousands of schools, universities, law enforcement forensic labs, manufacturing quality control, medical and tele-medicine since 2001.
The ProScope HR2 are made in Oregon, RoHS compliant (lead-free), UVC plug and play and include free Windows and Mac software. The bundled software will capture stills, video and time lapse. It can also be used live over the Internet with programs like Skype™ and Apple iChat™. ProScope lenses range from 0-10X, 30X, 50X, 100X, 200X, 400X, 500X and 1000X. Bodelin also has adapters for borescopes and analog microscopes. Bodelin also offers three types of optional measurement software accurate to within 10 microns and pre-calibrated for all ProScope lenses.
The ProScope HR2 Software is included free with every ProScope HR2 camera and is a powerful classroom tool. A software site license is included for use on multiple computers within your school network.
