TRUMPF Introduces In-Light HD OR Camera for Video, Still Images

TRUMPF Medical Systems Inc. offers an in-light high-definition (HD) operating room camera, the TruVidia HD, which reportedly captures and transmits razor sharp, true-to-life images. The camera offers a 1,080-line horizontal resolution and 2 million pixels. The images are said to be more than twice as clear as those available from standard definition cameras.

Images, captured in wide-screen format, can be transmitted for telemedicine applications or displayed on screen for education.
Integrated surgical suites now utilize HD endoscopes and HD routing systems and the in-light camera is in the same format, the company said, adding it is the first type of in-light camera to be offered on the market.
