New medical cameras and displays

Designing medical imaging systems for surgical, ophthalmology and microscope-mounting applications, Ikegami Tsushinki Co. Ltd, from Tokyo, Japan, is showing the latest additions to its range of medical cameras and medical-grade displays.

The MKC-X800 can be mounted on a lightweight support stand or boom and is designed for easy setup by medical staff, allowing the entire system to operate automatically

‘The new MKC-X800 is a progressive-scan camera with an ultra-high-sensitivity 4K-native CMOS imager,’ Ikegami reports. ‘Measuring just 34 x 40 x 40 mm, the camera head connects to a control unit giving access to functions such as mirror, flip and rotate, image correction and scene file access. The MKC-X800 can output in a variety of signal formats, such as quad-link 3G-SDI, HDMI 2.0. or 12G-SDI. Originated for the professional broadcast sector, the 12G SDI signal format allows easy 4K connection over a single coax cable,’ the report concludes.

‘These new cameras are ideal for capturing the precise colour and image detail of surgical operations,’ says Zeljko Romanic, Industrial & Medical Video Division Manager at Ikegami Electronics (Europe) GmbH. ‘The MKC-X800 can be mounted on a lightweight support stand or boom and is designed for easy setup by medical staff, allowing the entire system to operate automatically.’

The company also offers a diversified range of medical grade displays. ‘The combination of 4K ultra-high definition imaging and the enhanced dynamic range display capabilities increases the quality threshold now possible in video signal reproduction,’ Ikegami notes. ‘Top of the range are the 27-inch 4K high luminance model MLW‐2750UHD and 31-inch 4K 2D/3D model MLW‐3110U, each delivering an unsurpassed 4096 x 2160 resolution. Both displays incorporate 12G‐SDI and HDMI 2.0 inputs. Additional features include a new IPS panel with LED back lighting, multi-display modes, full-flat front panel design and full compliance with medical safety directives.’

For storage applications, the Ikegami MDR-600HD digital video recorder can capture still images and Full-HD 1920 x 1080 video to its 500 gigabyte integral hard drive, or to USB-plus-in flash/HDD. ‘The recorder includes an easy-to-operate front control panel with a built-in 3.5-inch full colour LCD screen, hygienic membrane control buttons and easy-access forward-facing USB ports,’ Ikegami adds. ‘Operating features include still image capture, content search and image data transfer. A barcode reader, foot switch, remote controller and USB card reader are available as options.’
