The OAV B-ZOOM is the next evolution of the wildly known OAV Ultra-Zoom. The B-ZOOM system conserves the Objective Head developed by the EMBL for parallax visualization of the samples, and associates it with two video cameras emulated in one video camera.

This hybrid zoom setup allows instant zoom change, which is well suited for highly automated end-stations: by replacing the motorized zoom with a virtual one, there is no time lost between zoom change.

The OAV B-ZOOM is now the standard system integrated in MD2-S and MD3-UP X-ray diffractometers.
