Karl Storz has added FULL HD (high-definition) technology to its Image 1® family of products, including camera heads and monitors. FULL HD gives surgeons a superior viewing experience by acquiring and displaying images with 1080p resolution, the highest HD imaging standard in the industry. The result is optimally sharp HD images, whether the surgeon is capturing still or slow-moving images, or rapid motion. Video images are displayed on new Image 1 HD WideView™ monitors, allowing surgeons to benefit from a more natural 16:9 aspect ratio. This allows instruments to be seen earlier when viewing full-screen endoscopic images.
