USB3 HDMI VideoLink

The USB3 HDMI VidoLink connects an HD video microscope or any other HDMI video output device to a laptop or desktop computer with a USB 3.0 port. It displays high resolution images up to 1920 x 1080 pixels at up to 60 frames/second (1080p) right on your computer screen.

Use the USB3 VideoLink with an HD video camera, HD compatible digital camera, camcorder, iPad (with HDMI adapter), tablet, laptop or desktop computer (with HDMI output) to view and capture the live video image.

The USB3 HDMI VideoLink includes Video ToolBox Pro PC software which provides easy access to advanced capture, labelling and measurement functions.

Capture images, movies and time-lapse sequences. Add labels or markers, freehand notes and time stamps. Advanced measurement tools include distance, angle, multipoint circles and arcs. Make relational measurements (the distance between the center of a circle and the midpoint of a reference line) and export all the measurement data to EXCEL®. Use picture-in-picture freeze frame and transparent overlays for image comparison.

Or upgrade to Video ToolBox Premier software with edge detection assist for measurements, CAD file overlays (with the optional CAD package), side-by-side image comparison, high dynamic range image capture, split screen overlays and more.
