Panasonic has released its GP-KH232 surgical camera, a device that has been available to developers as a pre-production model for the last year. It features 1080p full-HD resolution, digital and analog outputs, and controls over gain and dynamic range.
The camera can be used to replace standard definition cameras on existing surgical microscopes such as Leica and Zeiss.
The GP-KH232 compact and lightweight camera head offers a 1/3 type, full HD, single MOS sensor delivering a 1080p resolution image, with true 16×9 multi format, produces sharp, true-color images. A 12-axis matrix control with independent color adjustment results in precise color reproduction. In addition, dynamic range features enable highly contrasted scenes to maintain their color and detail for both dark and bright operating areas.
The GP-KH232H multi-format capabilities make it an ideal remote head camera for a variety of specialty medical applications, including microscopy, industrial endoscopy, research imaging, ophthalmology, neurosurgery, industrial inspections, pathology lab applications, machine visions and ENT.
