Paul Gaston of Zeiss on MTD CNC* introduces Zeiss's latest microscope (Visioner 1) as the greatest invention of all time. Shall we find out why? Visioner 1 supports real-time all-in-focus images, unlike conventional microscopes.MALS™, a unique technology, enables real-time Extended Depth of Field (EDoF) and real-time 3D image generationwithout extra Z-Stack and series of image post-processing.These techniques significantly reduce fatigue from repeated and precise measurements as well as increase accuracy. The world's first Visioner 1, introduced by Zeiss, is leading innovation in optical inspection and documentation systems,not only in the traditional manufacturing industry, but also in battlefield and aviation.We look forward to expanding our role in the oil, gas and medical industry's testing process. *MTD CNC is an engineering platform established in the UK that provides reliable precision engineering news and networks.▶ Go to see the video in full: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKXsCu4FNNU'
Zeiss Visioner 1 digital microscope uses SD Optics' Micro-mirror Array Lens System (MALS) technologyto achieve digitally-extended depth of focus up to 69mm: "ZEISS Visioner 1 revolutionizes the world of optical inspection and documentation.Driven by the unique Micro-mirror Array Lens System (MALSTM technology), enables for the first time, real-time all-in-focus imaging – first time, every time. Using a micro-mirror array lens system (MALS™) enables us to generate “virtual” lenses with distinctly different curvatures, thus different focus planes.This is achieved by changing the orientation of each individual micro-mirror in an orchestrated way. Re-shaping the curvature of this “virtual” lens at speed enables ultra-fast focusing and real-time all-in focus imaging and documentation." Up to 100x more usable Extended Depth of FieldAllows for height differences of up to 69mm*Reflective micro-mirror array with curvatures (variable) arranged in a flat planeEach micro-mirror is about 100x100 µmEach micro-mirror rotates & translates to form the optical surfaces with variable curvaturesNo need for Z-stacking or re-focusingSource: "Image Sensor World"Go to the News URL: https://image-sensors-world.blogspot.com/2020/11/zeiss-use-of-mals-technology-is-biggest.html?m=1
