Even displaying a beetle’s hair

‘4K technology is the future - a fact which hasn’t gone unnoticed by Panasonic. The company presented its new 4K Ultra HD Micro camera GP-UH532 in Dusseldorf in November 2015. We are very pleased to introduce this innovative system,’ says Margarita Zoussevitch, European Marketing Manager at Panasonic.

With simultaneous dual-channel-output the micro camera can combine with various systems, so an existing 2K infrastructure is useable.

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.’

Although having one of the smallest camera heads available, the new 4K micro camera’s resolution is 3840x2160/60p and it has a capacity of up to 1600 TV lines.

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.’
