Hi Noelle,

We use a similar configuration for our morphometry system.
We only have a PC between camera and TV.
Without a PC, you only need a normal CCD-camera (Sony etc.)
and in some cases an adapter between the video-camera and microscope.
Be sure the camera and TV have connecting ports with the same
standards (RGB, Pal, NTSC ... whatever).
If you want to use a PC, because you like to store pictures
of, for example, interesting abnormalities, you need to add
a framegrabber-card and a TV-card to your PC-system.

Hope this is helpful,

Joachim Siegmund
