 about THE SYSTEMS …

The SIRCHIE No. FX7 (black & white) and No. FX7C (color) Forensic Macro Video Systems utilize a high-resolution video camera and parfocal zoom lens system to display physical evidence on a video monitor. Magnification of the object being examined is continually variable and the resulting image may be downloaded to a video recorder and/or to a computer equipped with a video capture board. The video capture feature permits a digital image such as a latent fingerprint, tool mark, etc. to be e-mailed or sent via the internet to other agencies.

Special Features:

The camera is equipped with an automatic gain control to ensure optimum images under varying light conditions. The No. FX7 and No. FX7C can be operated under normal room lighting in most circumstances. The operator makes only two adjustments: focus and zoom. There are no complicated controls requiring constant manipulation. Once an object is brought into sharp focus, and depending on the height of the object, the easy-to-use zoom control may be moved from wide angle ~5 power to telephoto ~59 power without the need to refocus. Flat and three-dimensional objects may be examined. Dual 13-watt fluorescent lamps provide bright, cool, shadow-free illumination and feature up to 10,000 hours of service and lamp replacement is easy and inexpensive. If classification of fingerprints is necessary, optional classification discs are available to facilitate this process.
