Most CCTV cameras are suitable for connection to a television, VCR or to a computer
via a PCI card or equivalent. In addition to conventional CCTV cameras, the EDUCAM
system is a versatile video camera unit that can be attached to both compound and
stereomicroscopes, and the Brunel MINICAMS are light weight and economic alternatives
to conventional CCTV cameras. The Brunel Video Microscopes are a new concept that
have a CCTV unit fitted within the microscope that can be attached directly to a
monitor, TV or a computer.
JVC High Resolution CCTV cameras
There are several very prominent manufacturers of CCTV cameras, all of whom produce
effective and reliable equipment. Brunel Microscopes have tested the principal market
leaders in this price range for performance under the specific and exacting requirements
of CCTV microscopy. We are pleased to recommend JVC because of low level light response
and colour balance properties. Both high and medium resolution units have 1/3 inch
CCD chips, with automatic gain control and white balance. These JVC cameras have
built in digital signal processors that will respond to a minimum of 1.5 lux illumination.
The JVC units are high resolution with 540 lines equivalent.
