Toshiba Imaging Works with ISee3D to Develop 3D Microscopy System

Irvine, CA (PressExposure) April 03, 2012 -- Toshiba Imaging (, a leader in high definition, color video imaging, is working with ISee3D Inc. on an advanced 3D microscope digital video system using a single Toshiba IK-HD1, 3-chip CCD hi-def camera. ISee3D ( is a Canadian company that develops proprietary solutions that markedly increase the performance of new and existing 3D imaging systems. ISee3D's new single-lens technology produces carefully aligned, perfectly matched images that can be displayed on a high-definition monitor, eliminating eye fatigue and ocular discomfort that is currently associated with prolonged 3D microscopy image viewing using dual cameras. The companies will be demonstrating this revolutionary, single-camera 3D microscopy system in Vancouver, BC, March 20 - 21, 2012 at the Pan Pacific Hotel, 999 Canada Place, Vancouver, British Columbia.

"After evaluating various 3-chip HD cameras, we have selected Toshiba's IK-HD1 high-definition 3CCD camera for our new 3D microscope imaging system," stated Tom Mitchell, Chief Technical Officer of ISee3D. "This camera is ideal for our purposes due to its extremely small form factor, the acquisition speed, excellent colour reproduction, and superior contrast and resolution, all critical factors in medical and scientific imaging."

ISee3D's patented optical switch technology and its customized interface to Toshiba's IK-HD1 camera will result in 3D microscope images that deliver more detail in highly magnified objects, offering a complete 3D solution for microscopy using a single camera. The system can be integrated into new systems or adapted to the installed base of microscopes used in a wide range of clinical, surgical, and industrial microscopy applications.

Paul Dempster, Toshiba Imaging's Director of Sales, says, "Toshiba is excited to work with ISee3D, innovators of a revolutionary optics system that will benefit microscopy and other applications where stereoscopic 3D visualization is important. The end result of the combination of technologies is truly amazing."
