Not all 4K is alike

The LENS 4K system combines the latest in 4K (UHD) 3-CMOS sensor technology with our proprietary image and light processing algorithms maximized for surgical applications. This combination results in clarity and realistic colors. 

CMOS camera designs require precision when aligning each of the three sensors to optimize processing for red, green and blue (RGB) pixels. LENS 4K uses proprietary processing to align the red, green & blue images from the 3 sensors designed to produce rich color depth and image sharpness even when zooming into a region of interest.

Unlike single-sensor surgical camera solutions, which may lead to inaccurate colors or resolution degradation, the LENS 4K system uses native 4K processing, retaining full RGB pixels to capture subtle color differences. For example, visualize a bright white condyle or hue variations in the anatomy in the foreground, while maintaining a crisp view of the darker background.

Extend your reach beyond the surgical field

The LENS Tablet Application brings camera control and image management outside of the sterile field for optimal flexibility, providing staff control over camera settings, image captures, video and audio during procedures. Navigation is designed to be intuitive using the well known Apple iOS user interface and customer-supplied tablet with the LENS Tablet application. Post surgery, you can create customized reports to facilitate patient communication using your existing e-mail server or AirPrint.

The LENS 4K CCU may also connect to your health system network for sharing reports, images and video with third-party systems such as electronic medical record (EMR), PACS or other clinical systems.
