Visitors to the 2014 American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting, in Orlando, Florida, will see a joint demonstration of a new 3D solution for endoscopic applications, combining REACH3D's Single Light Path 3D HD capture system and Sony Electronics' medical grade 3D 32-inch display (LMD-3251MT) and 3D video recorder (HVO-3000MT).
The high-definition, medically compliant equipment is designed to simplify and reduce the costs of capturing and recording 3D video content, making it easier for surgeons and their teams to share 3D content in real time or for later playback.
Sony Electronics surgical products marketing manager Anne Bondulich noted that all the devices in a medical workflow need to work together seamlessly and easily as a complete system.
"The combination of REACH3D’s imaging capabilities with Sony’s proven display and recording technologies has the potential to create the ideal solution for capturing and recording endoscopic procedures in 3D," Bondulich added.
The REACH3D SoloSIGHT Single Light Path 3D HD endoscopy system gives medical endoscopy professionals a 5mm 3D rigid endoscope platform with true 1920 x 1080 HD sensor resolution (3MOS) and an optical design that ensures all imagery is crisp and clean.
REACH3D’s advanced 3D software allows surgeons to record in 3D, capture 2D and 3D photos as well as transmit live 3D surgeries over IP.
REACH3D CEO Clif Parker noted that the company has found Sony’s medical grade 3D monitor to provide an excellent recreation of our 3D imagery and to be a great value.
"The expansive control settings and the available hardware options allow us to configure Sony’s Medical Grade 3D Monitor precisely as needed to display the heightened clarity and depth generated by the breakthrough technology utilized in REACH3D’s SoloSIGHT Single Light Path 3D HD Endoscope product line," Parker added.
According to Parker, the REACH3D system can help to expand the potential uses for 3D minimally invasive procedures, as well as lead to safer procedures, greater efficiencies and faster recovery times, with dramatically reduced learning times for medical teams. Combined with the Sony LMD-3251MT display and the HVO-3000MT recorder, the joint system adds new levels of flexibility and performance.
