SEPTEMBER 27--Moritex Europe (Cambridge, UK; www.moritex.com) has launched the video PalmScope--a new affordable solution for on-site inspection tasks that will benefit from video recording, image capture, and storage. Weighing only 1200 g, the video PalmScope is a portable solution that can record and store video sequences up to 1 hour in length at VCR quality on a 1-Gbit CompactFlash card. Used in conjunction with industrial endoscopes or borescopes, applications, including inspection of underground pipes, aero-engines, storage tanks, valves, vents, and nozzles, will benefit from this powerful new product. The video PalmScope is a convenient and compact alternative to VCRs for on-site inspection applications.

The PalmScope has been tested and approved to CE and FCC regulations. It is designed for convenient hand-held operations using images derived from any video source (PAL or NTSC). There is a choice of language for all on-screen display operations in English, French, German, and Italian.

Incorporating a 6.4-inch (16-cm) TFT LCD screen, the PalmScope can display and freeze high-quality (512 x 768 resolution), full-frame resolution jpeg images on screen at the touch of a single button. It can store thousands of compressed images on its removable CompactFlash card.
