Ultra High Definition
Provides four times more information than conventional Full HD imaging systems
The Concept of the VISERA 4K UHD System
Olympus is always trying to achieve laparoscopic visibility that is equivalent to open surgery by providing HD video imaging systems with advanced technologies.
With the 4K technology, Olympus is now striving to make laparoscopic visibility even better than open surgery by adding features such as Ultra High Definition, Wider Colour Gamut, and Magnified Visualisation.
Looking at a suspicious tissue structure at close proximity is the key to assessing it successfully; the closer you are, the more information becomes visible. Improved visibility enables surgeons to perform more precise and safe procedures.
The Olympus VISERA 4K UHD provides four times more information than conventional Full HD imaging systems. It supports 4K UHD (3840 × 2160) and Full 4K (4096 × 2160) resolution. Four times more information means four times more detail; compared to conventional Full HD, a tissue structure moves 50 percent closer to the eye. That being so, 4K technology can provide the image quality needed to dissect with confidence every time.
The VISERA 4K UHD system adopts the 4K colour format, and so generates a Wider Colour Gamut (WCG). WCG enables premium colour contrast and brightness, closer to the sensitivity and acuity of natural eye sight, helping you to distinguish important tissue detail for optimal dissection. ULTRA HD means 60x the number of colours visible compared to HD, and better gradation of colours that is closer to the natural eye.
Surgeons benefit from WCG during a procedure because it makes for easier determination of tissue boundaries such as fat, nerves, and vessels. And that ensures better visualisation of blood vessels and lesions.
VISERA 4K UHD Magnified Visualisation brings surgeons even closer to every detail. Images appear physically larger, enabling the surgeon to observe fine patterns and structures of tissues in high precision, even when enlarged. The power to zoom in and not lose detail means the scope can be further from mist and smoke, and out of the way of hand instruments without compromise on image quality or detail.
Even at 2.0x zoom, VISERA 4K UHD Magnified Visualisation is equivalent to Full HD resolution – just zoom in and move the scope away from the operating field. On a 55” 4K UHD monitor, the image creates a sense of immersion that allows the entire OR team to completely focus on the surgical procedure.
