SPOT Basic Software

The SPOT Basic™ image capture software enables microscopists to create publication quality pictures easily.  The live image window provides a preview of the image capture so you can see how the image will look before you capture it. The live image window is ideal for panning through slides to locate areas of interest, and its focus gauge and detail magnifier enable fast and precise focusing. Color temperature, contrast and automatic white balance options create excellent color fidelity. Acquiring flawless images or image sequences is as effortless as a single mouse click.

After image capture, measurements, reticles, calibration marks, and other enhancements can be applied. Image sequences can be played back as a movie. Images can be dropped into a SPOT report for printing, or saved in several different file formats for publication or printing. The SPOT Basic software together with a SPOT digital camera provides a simple but effective way to enhance your professional image.
