MiDAS DA Brochure

Add data acquisition to your camera with MiDAS DA software and National Instruments hardware. Xcitex engineers invented the Waveform Per Frame (TM) technology that makes MiDAS DA the industry leading software for synchronizing high-speed video cameras with sensor data to achieve unparalleled accuracy and precision.

 


Customer Case Studies

Voice Analysis at Massachusetts General Hospital Using Digital Kymography and Xcitex Software

Digital kymography is a high-speed medical imaging technique used to visualize human vocal cord vibration. Before this technique was created, doctors studying vocal cords and their vibratory characteristics faced major challenges in capturing vocal cord motion for analysis and diagnosis. Assisted by Xcitex engineers, researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital have developed a solution using ProAnalyst and MiDAS software.

Application Notes

Measuring Trigger Accuracy with MiDAS DA and an Xcitex MkII LED Box

The new Xcitex LED-2 MkII demo box is a valuable tool for measuring synchronization between cameras and data acquisition systems. This test will visually demonstrate and quantify the accuracy of the event trigger to the '0' video frame of a camera and '0' datum of a data acquisition system. After you have completed the recording, comparing the video and data information will show the accuracy of the MiDAS video/data combination.
