Lumaview is the software application that controls all Lumascopes.  Functions provided include capture of individual images, composite images (e.g., 3 fluorescent colors or 1 fluorescent color plus phase contrast), time-lapse series and compilation into time-lapse videos, and live videos.

There are currently 2 Lumaview versons:  Lumaview 720/600-Series that controls LS720, LS620 and LS600, and Lumaview 500/400 that controls LS520 and LS420.  The latest versons of both software types can be downloaded from Etaluma’s website (Downloads page).

Lumaview runs on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10. Both desktop computers and laptops can be used, but the best visualization correlates with resolution of the monitor (note that the monitor does not affect image resolution directly unless a low quality monitor prevents the user from achieving the best focus).  The complete User Guide for each Lumaview version is contained in the Help Section of the software.

Shown below is a screenshot of the Lumaview 600-Series live image window illustrating how the LED type, illumination brightness, gain, and exposure are set.
