Using auto-stabilization

Real-time auto-stabilization in Scanbox Yeti is achieved by tracking the displacement of 2D features in a number of small windows relative to a reference image.  We prefer tracking cells within a handful of small windows because slow gradients in the image can easily bias the resulting estimates for large regions. Here are some step-by-step instructions on how…

Real-time signal extraction, visualization and processing in scanbox 2.0

Here is a sneak preview of the new features to be released with Scanbox 2.0. Some of the salient additions include: Automatic stabilization: The system can automatically correct for rigid (x,y) translation in real time. Selection of regions of interest (ROIs): Allows for the selection of regions of interest that need to be tracked in real-time.  After their definition,…
