Digital Imaging Firmware Improves Real-Time Video Applications
Resolution and color fidelity are increased over traditional cameras and imagers
New image-processing firmware enhances resolution and speedin real-time applications. The KSC-3000 processor, developed by Eastman Kodak Co. (Rochester, NY), complements the firm's KAI-1020CM interline CCD image sensor. The 1-megapixel sensor captures images at video rates of 30 frames per second. Used together, they can convert images from raw Bayer digital color data into 24-bit RGB color output. Real-time imaging in endoscopy, microscopy, and machine vision systems would benefit.

Skin-Harvesting Tape ProvidesAlternative to Biopsy
Noninvasive product eases epidermal health monitoring
Tape harvesting, a well-known method in dermatology, has been used mainly to recover skin proteins and small molecules. Adhesives Research Inc. (Glen Rock, PA; www.adhesivesresearch.com)and DermTech International (San Diego, CA; www.dermtechintl.com) have developed a multipurpose medical-grade adhesive tape for use in noninvasive skin harvesting. The product's applications include monitoring epidermal health in circumstances where a biopsy would be impractical.Read more...
