July 9, 2008 - TRUMPF Medical Systems Inc. recently introduced reportedly the first in-light high definition (HD) operating room camera.
The TruVidia HD captures and transmits razor sharp, true-to-life images with 1,080 lines horizontal resolution and 2 million pixels. The images are more than twice as clear as those available from standard definition (SD) cameras, said TRUMPF.
Images, captured in wide-screen format, can be transmitted for telemedicine applications and displayed on screen for education. Remote consultations can be conducted with a greater degree of confidence as the HD images essentially place the remote physicians in the OR.
The TruVidia HD is integrated into the central handle of the TRUMPF iLED surgical light. The camera is also available on a separate arm. Camera functions, including zoom and rotate can be controlled directly from the sterile field or from the control panel. Captured still images and even entire video sequences can be shared and archived on USB memory sticks.
