Olympus Adds New Options to DSX Series Opto-Digital Microscopes

Upgrades Enhance Operability and Improve Measurement Precision

CENTER VALLEY, Pa., Nov. 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As part of its ongoing
effort to integrate optical and digital technologies, Olympus recently
announced the addition of several new options to its DSX Series Opto-Digital
Microscopes. The newly enhanced DSX500, DSX500i, and DSX100, scheduled to
launch worldwide on November 1, will enable observation with higher image
quality, enhanced operability, and extremely high reliability with guaranteed
measurement precision (DSX500 and DSX500i only).

Offering a new concept in industrial microscopy and metrology, the new DSX
Series options include Super HDR software, an anti-halation adapter (DSX100
only), and the DSX100 Motorized stage combination.

With Olympus' new Super HDR application software, the observation of vivid
images with excellent balance between bright and dark areas is made possible
by the boosting of the software's HDR function. Super HDR has two modes: Fast
HDR is used for observation at higher speeds, while Fine HDR is used for
observation with higher quality. Super HDR is significantly faster than
previous DSX Series application software.

Available exclusively for the DSX100, the new anti-halation adapter prevents
reflection from the microscope illumination appearing on the sample, providing
clearer observation.

The new DSX100 Motorized stage model combines the DSX100 with a motorized
stage, enhancing overall operability by allowing all operations, including
motorized movement of the subject sample, to be controlled from the user's
monitor.

"A direct response to the speed at which the micro-imaging and metrology
market is moving, the rapid evolution of our innovative DSX Series represents
Olympus' dynamic approach to opto-digital technologies," said Matt Smith,
Executive Director of Sales & Marketing, Olympus Scientific Equipment Group.
"Super HDR and other usability improvements make the DSX Series faster and
more flexible, anticipating the very specific needs of our end-users."
