The new Excelis HD color microscopy camera sets a new standard for excellence in high definition imaging for scientific and industrial applications.

Excelis HD's unique architecture is the only camera in its class to offer simultaneous live image output to an HD monitor and to a computer via USB 2.0. Images can be saved directly to a PC or Mac or onto the included 8GB SD card. Each camera is supplied with the PC/Mac compatible on-board image capture software that allows for basic image control. Or, for more image control, analysis and annotation, our full-featured CaptaVision PC imaging software is also included.


  • 1080p color camera with live video preview without any lag time or compression
  • HDMI & USB 2.0 output for video and images
  • Built-in mouse control software for HDMI viewing/recording without a computer
  • Simultaneous live image output to an HD monitor to a computer via USB 2.0
  • On-board camera software with basic image controls: auto/manual exposure time, 3D noise reduction, 1080p video recording, magnify (ROI), rotate, flip images, side by side comparison, browse images/video playback from SD card (PC & Mac compatible)
  • CaptaVision PC imaging software for more advanced image control, annotation & analysis
  • Exposure time of 0.001 seconds to 10 seconds, 20 scales of Gain value and incredibly efficient 3D noise reduction for fluorescence applications
  • SONY IMX236 sensor, dual FPGA processors and unique algorithms produce perfect color reproduction

With the new on-board firmware, Excelis 600-HD Series cameras have three great new features:

  • CALIBRATION: With this new tool, a variety of measuring tools can be utilized to measure line, distance, angle, length, circumference and area to 1/100 microns. These precision measurements can be performed and saved on the HD view!
  • MASK: Use this tool to temporarily cover portions of an image to highlight an area for demonstrating or explaining.
  • RULER: Overlay a ruler with an X and Y scale on the image.

NOTE: Previous versions of the Excelis AU-600-HD or AU-600-HDS cameras cannot be upgraded with the new features.
