A new three-dimensional (3D) camera provides surgical staff with a realistic view of what is going on at the operating table.

Thanks to progressive image reconstruction, The TRUMPF TruVidia 3D in-light 3D camera provides high definition (HD) images that are sharper, more detailed, and more lifelike than standard two-dimensional models. In addition to brilliant 3D images, the camera can also show 2D images in full HD quality. Users can easily switch between 3D-HD and 2D-HD mode during a procedure and can even work in parallel, with 2D and 3D images transmitted simultaneously to an appropriate monitor.

The images provided have a five-fold number of pixels than conventional PAL signals, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and progressive image scanning. Automatic synchronization of color temperature between the surgical light, camera module, and monitor ensure a natural, realistic color rendering. Other features of the camera include a built-in routing functionality for two image sources, with the available image sources distributed to connected monitors, including source preview. Thanks to 3G-SDI technology, the TruVidia 3D allows an easier and more reliable transmission of high-resolution video data in 1080p.

The digital streaming allows live transmissions from the operating room through existing network infrastructures in conventional PAL and NTSC resolutions, or even in HD quality, without additional installation costs. The live streaming is possible on both local networks or globally through the Internet, with integrated audio transmission enabling direct communication between the operating room and external observers.

An easy and intuitive control unit serves as a hub for operating all camera functions and outputting video and still-image data in all common signal formats. Surgeons can also handle the three most important camera functions directly from the sterile control panel of an iLED5 light head. An easy to use, flexible tool helps record surgical snapshots or video sequences, with the data saved directly to a USB memory stick using the USB 2.0 interface integrated in the control unit. After surgery, recorded data can be edited offline on a PC or laptop for reports, presentations, or emails.

Furthermore, as with all TruVidia cameras, the TruVidia 3D camera can be integrated into existing TRUMPF surgical lights equipped with camera system interfaces, at no additional installation efforts. The TRUMPF TruVidia 3D in-light 3D camera is a product of TRUMPF (Puchheim, Germany), and can be used with all conventional TruVidia connections on TRUMPF surgical light heads.
