Toshiba Imaging, ISee3D pair to develop 3-D microscopy system

3-D microscopy system pairs technologies from Toshiba Imaging and ISee3D

HD color video imaging systems maker Toshiba Imaging (Irvine, CA) is working with 3-D solutions company ISee3D (Toronto, ON, Canada) on an advanced 3-D microscope digital video system using a single Toshiba three-chip CCD HD camera. ISee3D's single-lens technology produces images that can be displayed on a HD monitor, eliminating eye fatigue and ocular discomfort that is currently associated with prolonged 3-D microscopy image viewing using dual cameras.

ISee3D's patented optical switch technology and customized interface to Toshiba's IK-HD1 camera will result in 3-D microscope images that deliver more detail in highly magnified objects using a single camera. The system can be integrated into new systems or adapted to the installed base of microscopes used in a wide range of clinical, surgical, and industrial microscopy applications.

The 3-D microscopy system is slated for commercialization later this year.
