Vision Engineering Digital Stereo 3D Full HD Inspection System – DRV-Z1

The future of optical inspection is here

The incredible DRV-Z1 (Deep Reality Viewer) is the world’s first and only digital stereo inspection system which creates full 3D HD images which float in front of your eyes. You don’t need any special glasses or goggles and there are no unpleasant side effects. You just sit back and view high definition 3D images, with outstanding depth perception, as easily as real life.

It is a remarkable invention which is already revolutionising the way organisations view, capture and share 3D images of the samples they are studying.


A powerful combination
Ideal for inspection and manufacturing applications, the award-winning DRV-Z1 combines the capabilities of an optical stereo microscope with digital measuring technology, in a single unique system. Magnifications of between 6.1x – 93x (additional 2x digital) with zoom capabilities are possible, and accurate on-screen measuring can be achieved with our powerful dimensioning software, such as ViPlus and DimensionOne.


Real time collaboration on a global scale
3D HD images can be shared across networks to other DRV systems in real time, for simultaneous remote viewing. Now your colleagues can view anything from sensitive subjects in strictly controlled environments through to newly made prototypes created thousands of miles away, without ever leaving the office. It is easy to record/recall archived 3D images and video.


Outstanding ease of use
DRV-Z1’s glasses-free 3D experience with true depth perception, extra wide field of view, high definition resolution and excellent subject clarity make it a great choice for inspection applications which would otherwise be problematic using conventional technology.


Supreme comfort
The ergonomic design improves comfort, efficiency and productivity by enabling good posture, reducing fatigue. Operators enjoy freedom of head movement, a natural view of the subject and easy hand-eye coordination critical for precision inspection tasks such as re-work, repair and dissection. There are also no limitations for wearers of prescription glasses or safety glasses.


Exceptional ease of use
DRV-Z1 requires minimal setup and is remarkably easy to use; with familiar controls designed specifically for efficiency and convenience. Very little training is required to enjoy the full user and productivity benefits. 2D or 3D can be captured to a USB drive, and the DRV-Z1 can also be connected to a PC for local sharing, or for access to dimensioning software such as our ViPlus or DimensionOne packages.


A long working distance and wide zoom range suit a broad range of industrial and life science applications which require precise hand-eye co-ordination, including those typified by Aerospace, Automotive, Electronics, Materials Analysis, Medical, Precision Engineering, Prototyping, and more.


Why travel when you can see the same thing, in full 3D HD, in real time, from the comfort of your own workplace? It saves you time, it saves you money and it’s better for the planet.
