D3 series adopt SONY Exmor or GSENSE CMOS sensor as the image-picking device and USB3.0 is used as the transfer interface. BigEye hardware resolutions range from 4.2M to 10M and come with the integrated CNC aluminum alloy compact housing.

D3 series integrated with 12~16 bit Ultra-fine Hardware Image Signal Processor Video Pipline(Ultra-fineTM HISPVP) for Demosaic, Adjustments, Automatic Exposure, Gain Adjustment, One Push White Balance, Chrominance Adjustment, Saturation Adjustment, Gamma Correction, Luminance Adjustment, Contrast Adjustment, Bayer and finally form RAW data for 8/12 bit output. This will move the heavier burden of the processing from the PC to the Ultra-fineTM HISPVP and greatly accelerating the processing speed.

D3 series  comes with advanced video & image processing application ToupView; Providing Windows/Linux/macOS/Android multiple platform SDK(Native C/C++, C#/VB.NET, Python, Java, DirectShow, Twain, etc);

The D3 series can be widely used in bright field light environment and microscope image capture and analysis with higher frame rate.
