Panasonic reports that the 4K micro camera also offers various options for colour enhancement and can zoom in to previously selected image sections and also is particularly user-friendly. The new camera’s resolution is 3840x2160/60p and its capacity is up to 1600 TV lines. ‘Our 4K micro camera outclasses everything. It delivers very precise colour reproduction and outstanding sharpness and detail,’ Zoussevitch points out. ‘Previously undetectable areas or objects become visible and sharp. Structures and details which were previously imperceptible - such as the fine hairs on a beetle – become clearly visible.’
Additionally, six different personal profiles for the camera can be stored on, and accessed from, a USB stick.
The system has the medical standard IEC60601-1 certification and can be connected to a number of medical devices or procedures via several HDMI- or SDI ports, Panasonic adds. ‘This makes the camera suitable for different medical or microscopic applications in hospitals, research facilities and laboratories.’
The device consists of a micro camera head, control unit, cable and adaptor. ‘It has one of the smallest 1/3 camera heads on the market,’ the manufacturer points out. ‘With different cable lengths of three, six and 15 metres available, the camera head can be used for various applications.’
Patrick Linder, European Product Manager at Panasonic Industrial Medical Vision, adds: ‘The 4K Micro camera GP-UH532 offers simultaneous dual-channel-output in 4K/2K. Users can therefore use the GP-UK532 with their existing 2K infrastructure without the need for a buck converter.’
The micro camera can be combined with various systems and facilitates many different individual solutions, offering a cost-effective interoperable solution, the manufacturer notes.
Zoussevitch: ‘We cannot expect customers to immediately convert their entire infrastructure to 4K – and this is not necessary with our new system. Thanks to the simultaneous dual-channel-output users can also use the camera in an existing 2K infrastructure.’
