PAX-it and PAXcam New Features Listing
Announcing PAX-it!2, a major new version of PAX-it– with changes to the general layout of the user interface and the PAXcam interface. The user experience has been modernized with a ribbon view that is more organized and easier to use. In addition, the browsing structure of the PAX-it image collection now supports a tree-view with much more flexibility for users for organizing and browsing project folders.
PAXcam users also benefit from the new release, with new PAXcam models, and a new user interface that is cleaner, more organized, and intuitive.
PAX-it is not a static product by any means– we are constantly listening to our customers and markets so that we can add the latest tools to help accomplish your imaging goals.

|The new PAXcam CONNECT, a multicast streaming module (one server / multiple clients model), is here! This module allows the live preview from the PAXcam to be streamed to another client or multiple clients on the network (LAN or internet) so that live consultations may be given in real time through the microscope. This important technology is a must for clean rooms, telepathology, remote quality control work, and many other applications where others need to see your views remotely. PAXcam CONNECT can be retrofitted to any existing PAXcam USB2 camera system or new purchase.|
PAXcam Mini-Interface Toolbar
|All PAXcam USB2 cameras have an optional floating toolbar available that simplifies the interface to include only the most basic daily functions, while hiding the more extensive interface panel. Using a PAXcam has never been easier!|
Continuous WB and
|The PAXcam now remembers two important auto-adjustment routines when the camera is closed: Continual White Balance, and ‘Set’ exposure. If the camera is closed with these functions operating, they will still be set when the camera is reopened. In addition, they may be used as standard “Stored Settings” in the PAXcam interface, so that an ‘Auto’ mode may be stored and selected at any time for exposure, white balance, or both.|
New PAXcam ARC+
|The newest model of PAXcam is here! The ARC+ uses the same high-quality CCD sensor as the 2+ model, but incorporates pixel-shifting technology to yield adjustable resolutions up to 32 megapixels, for stunning detail.|
|The PAXcam “Capture” routine may now be set to capture directly to your printer, or to an outgoing Outlook email. The expansive list of ‘Capture’ options is a one-click solution for databasing, emailing, capturing to an FTP site, printing, and more—directly from the camera!|
High Dynamic Range
|A new “High Dynamic Range” (HDR) routine is available in the PAXcam interface (and also for previously captured images). A single click will capture a series of images at varying exposures (images not saved to hard drive), blend them together, and produce one final HDR image with expanded detail in light and dark areas. Amazing feature for samples with reflective surfaces or other applications that require a wide range of exposures.|
|PAX-it and PAXcam customers may now interface with Tech Support via online Live Chat sessions through our websites (www.paxit.com and www.paxcam.com). This convenient method for support is preferred by many to minimize phone time and allow for multi-tasking.|
High Dynamic Range
|A new “High Dynamic Range” (HDR) image-processing routine is available for previously captured images. Images that are taken at varying exposures are blended so that a final HDR image is produced with expanded detail in light and dark areas.|
Specific Field Data Overlayed on Image
|Navigation to recently visited folders is made easier by accessing this dropdown list.|
|The PAX-it ‘blend images’ function now allows one image to be moved on top of the other. The expanded user interface also allows adjustment of transparency on the second image, by a number of methods.|
Search Results has Extended Functionality
|The new Search Results window has been expanded in functionality to allow folder-level functions. Use the new Search Results toolbar to Copy, Create Reports, Email images and much more—without the need to visit the image folders.|
|Search Results may be marked for hiding, and then hidden with a click on the toolbar. Allows general search results to be culled to yield the specific items of interest.|
|PAX-it will automatically back up important configuration files on a daily basis, as a service to help restore data in case of an event which causes data corruption.|
Reminder to Upgrade,
|PAX-it now automatically checks the installed version number against the current PAX-it release version and reminds users that an upgrade is available, allowing in-warranty users to remain current more easily. Auto updates are only available if the workstation is connected to the Internet.|
Database Backup for Copy/Move
|A routine is implemented to backup an entire PAX-it collection to another location. This function copies all images, annotations, notes, db information, measurements—in short, the entire collection—to another location for backup.|
|PAX-it and all PAXcam models may be installed and run on 64-bit Windows platforms.|
“Add to” Excel Report,
|New Excel reporting feature allows for templates to receive PAX-it data, and then be used again for additional data. An ongoing project may append new data to an existing report over long periods of time. Useful for trend analysis and other applications.|
