Brunel TV Zoomview

The Zoomview is a handheld microscope that can magnify up to x200 and display an image on any television through the AV port. Simply tune the television to the correct AV channel and the image appears automatically. The Zoomview is cordless and will work up to 30 feet away from its docking centre allowing the unit to obtain images from all sorts of difficult to reach places. The docking station simply attaches to the television via its AV lead and the Zoomview communicates with the docking station by wireless. The built in LED lights have a brightness control and produce really clear coloured images.  As well as being a handheld microscope, the Zoomview will also focus into the distance like a normal CC TV camera. In the box is the Handheld Zoomview Microscope, the docking station, transformer plug with recharging lead and the leads to connect the docking station to the television. For TV and projectors, but would need a TV video encoder to work with a computer. Used only by ourselves for customer demonstrations. Stand not included

Brunel Video Microzoom

Microzoom instruments that connect directly to computer are increasingly common these days. However this unit is somewhat different from the rest. This particular microscope is an assessment unit that we have used ourselves. The microscope zooms continuously from x10 to x60 with a working distance of 30mm. What is novel and unusual is that the image stays in focus throughout the zoom. When connected to a computer via USB the microscope has an inbuilt lighting system with rheostat brightness control. A good solid stand supports the optical system. Full software included. Highly recommended.

The analyser filter is placed in situ underneath the monocular head of the microscope and can be removed from the light path via a push/pull lever. The substage condenser has an iris diaphragm and attached to the top of the field lens is the fully rotating polarising filter.

COVID 19 Update

We are currently trading online only but delivering as normal. We are operating with a much reduced number of staff which allows us to operate a rota system that removes any social contact and adheres to Government instructions.
Our customer demonstration suite remains closed for obvious safety reasons. However, we would be pleased to support special interest Zoom meetings by arrangment.

Keep safe at this difficult time.
