Handling In-Situ Video Data in GMS 3 Webinar

Modern CMOS-based TEM cameras are capable of generating data in quantities too large to manually analyze every frame. It is not uncommon to generate hundreds of GB of data in a single session if capturing data with high spatial and temporal resolution. The key challenge is finding and extracting from the complete data set the minimal range of data which contains the desired information so that this can be analyzed in detail to yield a scientific conclusion. It can also be important to minimize some features in the data, like sample drift and noise, that mask or distract from the real structure and dynamics of the sample.

Gatan Microscopy Suite® (GMS) or DigitalMicrograph® provides tools and scripting for processing and visualizing the data generated by our cameras. For in-situ data streams, these tools are made available through the IS Player. In this webinar, two datasets are processed to demonstrate the tools that are built-in to the IS Player, provide tips and tricks for getting the most out of the built-in tools, and expanding the built-in functions with scripting. Topics include:

  • Data size and noise reduction
  • Visualization and video export options
  • Drift correction of challenging data
  • Filters for drift correction
  • Scripted data processing with Python
