HCImage is Hamamatsu’s core image processing and image analysis software designed to solve a wide range of scientific and industrial imaging applications. It can control complex experiments including camera control, full microscope and illumination control. Furthermore it allows users to run experiments in semi-automated or automated modes and to apply sophisticated image analysis algorithms to the image data for detailed analysis.


It is designed for applications like fluorescence microscopy, ratio imaging, TIRF, FRET, FRAP, multi-dimensional time lapse imaging, protein-protein interaction analysis or particle size analysis.

Supported Hardware

All DCAM compatible cameras

HiPic is Hamamatsu’s software with emphasis on physical and industrial applications.


Not only all Hamamatsu monochrome DCAM based cameras like e.g. sCMOS ORCA-Flash series or ImagEM EM-CCD cameras are supported. Internal driver modules allow the use of line sensors or X-ray cameras, TDI cameras and analogue cameras with HiPic, too. In the newest version image intensifiers and mini-spectrometers are integrated now as well.
HiPic is easy to use and offers besides full control of all camera features various analysis functions like sophisticated correction algorithms, calibration, arithmetical operations, ROI analysis and much more. A sophisticated remote control feature allows to integrating its functionality in other software packages, to control it from other operating systems like Unix or Linux, or to control several systems from one control software.

Supported Hardware

All Hamamatsu monochrome cameras, image intensifiers, flat panel sensors, X-ray cameras, Microfocus X-Ray sources and mini-spectrometers

Operating System

Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10
