+ - World's Highest Resolution HDTV Surgial Camera->

Submitted by

docinthemachine writes "The world's highest resolution HDTV surgical video camera system has been developed and used for laparoscopic surgery. This system is unique in having a native chip resolution of 1920 x 1080p and the first ever (for surgery) 16:9 aspect ratio. The enhanced resolution allows the surgeron to see finer details and pathology. Surgical skills are aided by the resolution and wider field of view as well. The enhanced shadows and tonal range also provides enhanced visual clues for depth perception while working in a 2D environment. This system will be featured in the world's first ever broadcast of surgery in high definition in an upcoming national Geographic HD special. Details of the system are at http://docinthemachine.com/2007/07/31/hdsurgery/ with details of a new medical HD XDCAm blu-ray disk based recording system used to capture the footage at http://docinthemachine.com/2007/08/02/recordhd/"
