  • Video Solutions

    Integrated Video Solutions

    Integrated video solutions for surgical microscopes are the most convenient way to generate images for information, documentation, teaching and presentation purposes. Fully integrated camera systems with factory-aligned optics ensure reliable and consistent performance. Enjoy the esthetic and ergonomic advantages of the surgical microscope without any impairment by cables or bulky video adapters. The integrated control allows management of both the video solution and the surgical microscope, which provides a streamlined surgical workflow.

    • High-contrast, sharp images with the integrated 3-chip HD camera (1080p)
    • Video images with optimized definition and color rendition for high-end surgical imaging through the specially developed camera system for OPMI® PENTERO® 900
    • The light sensitivity of the video camera enable sharp and high-contrast images for intraoperative fluorescence applications (BLUE 400™ and YELLOW 560)
    • The integrated HD Recorder (1080i) can be operated via the touchscreen, the foot control panel or the handgrip of the surgical microscope
    • The videos and  images are stored on an integrated hard disk. They can also be transferred directly to a USB storage media
    • Save storage space for large HD videos by using the local editing function. Videos can be easily and quickly edited through the touchscreen
    • Standardized data exchange with PACS systems via the integrated DICOM module
    • The integrated 22” HD monitor provides a brilliant image of the operating field. With the wide viewing angle and the flexible suspension arm, the OR team can observe the procedure comfortably
    • The images of the integrated video solution can be connected to   secondary monitors or other video systems in the OR using standard video interfaces

    MultiVision Data Navigation

    DICOM and MultiVision Modules

    OPMI PENTERO 900 offers comprehensive connectivity with workplace technologies and data management functionality. Integrated modules like MultiVision™ and DICOM ensure a seamless connection with other visualization systems and into the hospital’s communication infrastructure, respectively.

    Foldable Tube f170 f260

    Foldable Tube f170/f260

    The flexible Foldable Tube f170/f260 offers increased positioning capability, magnification and user comfort. With a quick dial turn, the integrated PROMAG™ functionality provides an additional 50 percent magnification gain.

    Stereo Co-observation

    Stereo Co-observation Tube

    The stereo co-observation tube enables a second person to see the surgical field at the same magnification level. This is particularly well suited for sterile assistants or for training.

    OPMI drapes visionguard

    Drapes with VisionGuard Lens

    Drapes from Carl Zeiss are manufactured with VisionGuard®, a unique, optical lens that works with the microscope’s objective like a single optical unit to ensure optical clarity. The lens can be replaced with a new sterile lens during surgery without compromising sterility.


    Mouth Switch

    The mouth switch offers smooth, hands-free repositioning of the OPMI head.


    Wireless Foot Control Panel

    The wireless foot control panel, designed to manage multiple microscope functions, can be freely positioned for rapid set-up and user convenience during surgery. The intelligent power management function ensures long‑lasting operability.
