Olympus announces launch of Stream 2.2 image analysis software

December 14, 2016 — Olympus has launched its Stream 2.2 image analysis software package designed to offer options that meet all materials science imaging and analysis needs. OLYMPUS Stream 2.2 combines digital image acquisition, image processing, analysis and evaluation, image archiving, document management, and report generation. As a result, Stream software provides the tools needed for users to control, collect, calculate, and communicate their work in complete compliance with international and national standards.

This updated software is compatible with Windows 10 and supports MS Office 2016 for creating reports in MS Word, MS Excel, or MS PowerPoint. Stream 2.2 also works with all Olympus industrial microscopes and a broad range of Olympus digital cameras, allowing an interface between hardware and software. New features such as the linear ruler allow for measuring at any angle and location on the sample to simplify measurements. New standards like ISO 4967:2013 keep users up-to-date in fields like metallurgy with the latest standards for non-metallic inclusions. 

Industrial production and maintenance demands regarding product quality, process assurance, and economic profitability are rising steadily. Industrial quality and process assurance programs are based on proven methods, the knowledge and evaluative skills of experts, and strict national and international standards. A digital inspection approach can provide higher objectivity and reproducibility compared to conventional inspection methods. Stream 2.2 utilizes predefined settings and easy adaptations based on specific sample requirements, leading to more precise results due to better data input.
