Handheld video capturing for use with inspection endoscopes.

Moritex Europe : 15 February, 2008  (New Product)
PalmScope handheld monitor with 6.5 in screen for use with video endoscopes for inspection capabilities in difficult locations.
Moritex has announced that its handheld PalmScope video capture device has enabled VisionScope Technologies (Cambridge, UK) to provide an integrated inspection, image capture and data archiving solution for underfloor buildings inspection.

During the restoration of a cottage in Harpenden, UK workers reported pungent odours coming from below the floorboards of the building. Traditionally buildings inspectors have either had to resort to the high cost of buying / renting a video endoscopic inspection system or the considerable inconvenience of taking up flooring.

Kevin Sebley, Director of VisionScope Technologies commented 'The PalmScope video capture device in combination with a SnakeEye camera system and a 4.7mm video endoscope has enabled us to provide a powerful, yet affordable solution for inspection under floorboards or in drains and sewers'. He added 'At roughly one third the price of comparable video endoscopic inspection systems we were able to provide an integrated solution that identified the problem to be due to rat infestation and damp found in one of the central beams not treated by the damp course'.

The PalmScope is a versatile video recording device easily enabled to work with a wide range of cameras and video endoscopes. Designed for ease-of-use and convenience, images and video clips captured by the PalmScope are automatically named with the date and a sequence label. Images can be organised with an overlay of up to 10 lines of text using an optional standard PC keyboard. The PalmScope includes a convenient thumbnail gallery feature with cataloguing functions to help in archiving and retrieving images. PalmScope includes a range of cataloguing functions help in archiving and retrieving them, including the ability to rename, delete and move or copy images between folders. An individual image may be selected for full size viewing. Alternatively images can be easily transferred to a PC where they can be displayed or processed by any suitable image editing software.

Tested and approved to CE and FCC regulations the durably constructed PalmScope is compatible with PAL, NTSC, composite and S-video signals. A built-in 6.5in TFT LCD display allows you to preview the video before saving it to the memory card. Video clips are captured at full NTSC or PAL resolution, at 30 or 25 frames per second (fps) respectively, and stored in Motion-JPEG (MJPEG) compressed format. Storage capacity is limited only by the size of the CompactFlash card used, a 2GB card will hold many thousands of images or approximately 80 minutes of video.
