The program stores the data directly on the computer in a user defined folder, and the images can be tagged and annotated before and after the shot. All the major attributes of the camera are controllable from the PC.
  2. PAX-it: “Photodyne is proud to offer PAX-it software as an upgrade to our systems”
  3. PAX-it digital imaging software is designed to manage your imaging workflow, making it easy to capture images directly from the Photodyne workstation into a browsable, sortable, and searchable image collection. Images may be automatically sorted by project number or case number, and they are stored in a database of your design so that important information may be tagged to images.
  4. Additional useful tools present in PAX-it allow storing, retrieving, displaying, and working with your images. You may annotate images, create presentations and reports, attach notes to images, attach images to email, place images side by side, and much more!
  5. Additional PAX-it software modules allow further expansion of your lab’s imaging capabilities, including network site licensing, scripting abilities, measurement and image analysis modules, and more.
