March 25, 2008

KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America's Image 1 HD Video Platform has been recognized by the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons (SLS) as a 2007 Innovation of the Year.

Image 1 offers full HD, with 1920-by-1080 resolution and acquires and displays surgical images in a 16:9 aspect ratio to provide natural endoscopic views possible. Progressive scanning at 60 frames per second aims enable surgeons to capture fast-moving objects and produce sharper still images with less distortion, especially during rapid instrument movement.
