  • 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 of 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.

    HD Video Solutions

    HD video solution monitor
    • Perfectly focused and sharp pictures with the integrated 3-chip high-definition (HD) camera (1080p)
    • Video images with optimized clarity and color rendition due to video camera optimization for vascular surgery
    • Sharp camera image enabled by integrated SpeedFokus™ autofocus function and the separate adjustable video focusing feature
    • Crystal-clear images for the surgical staff, independently of the surgeon's view by automated Video SpeedFokus
    • HD DigiZoom - 2x video & image magnification
    • Patient names can be easily assigned to video data

    Integrated HD Recorder

    USB recorder
    • The integrated HD recorder (1080p) can be operated via handgrip or foot control panel
    • Patient names can be easily assigned to video data
    • The videos and still images are transferred directly to a USB storage media or to a shared directory in the Local Area Network (LAN Storage)

    Integrated 22" HD Monitor

    Vario 700 Monitor 400
    • To support the OR staff with surgical microscope images, the integrated 22" HD monitor has a wide viewing angle and can be positioned very flexibly
    • The OR team can observe the procedure in sharp and colorful images
    • The images of the integrated video solution can be connected to secondary monitors or other video systems in the OR using standard video interfaces

    Fully Integrated Video

    • With the optional fully integrated video chain (in 3CCD standard definition or in brilliant high definition), OPMI VARIO 700 makes video documentation easy without a separate video tower or monitor and, at the end of the session, take it all with you on a USB stick.

    External Video Components

    To support customer requirements or wishes for specific video solutions, external components can be mounted to the microscope system. The external attachment via standard optical and mechanical interfaces increases microscope flexibility and retrofitability.
