  • DC drive: equipped with input terminal for DC12V power supply (AC adaptor is included).
  • Power Supply Activation mode on the main unit linked to centralized power supply ON/OFF
     

 

Touch-Panel LCD Monitor

High resolution 16:9 screen, 3.5-type, approx. 1.15-megadot panel touch panel for multifunctional operating ease.

  • LCD reverse display: The image displayed on the LCD monitor can be reversed vertically and horizontally. The camera head can be reversed vertically to match installation conditions.

* When the image is reversed, the recorded image will remain in its original orientation

  • 13 User buttons: In addition to one hard key, 12 User buttons are displayed. Functions can be allocated to each. Four Scene File buttons also allow easy switching of the scene setting
  • Focus Assist: Focusing is aided by a Peaking Display (emphasizing in-focus areas by the use of coloring)

 

Touch Panel

Reliability for Medical Applications

Complies with Medical Standards

Medical Electronic Device Safety Standards (IEC 60601-1) and EMC Standards (IEC60601-1-2).

* In AC 240V/60Hz it does not comply with this standard.

Lens Protector

A lens protector (MC Protector/Accessory) for the front panel of the Compact Camera Head is included as standard equipment. Protects the lens from splashes.

Lens Protector

Control Section Membrane Sheet

The control section of the Recorder uses switches covered by a membrane sheet. The surface has few bumps and indentations, so cleaning is easy with an ethanol disinfectant.

 

High-quality Image Acquisition and Video Recording

29.5 mm Wide-Angle Optical 20x Zoom Lens

29.5 mm Wide-Angle Lens achieves 29.5 mm wide-angle in spite of its compact size.

  • Optical 20x zoom covers a range from 29.5 mm wide angle to 612 mm close ups (35mm equivalent) for various applications.

  • Intelligent (i.Zoom): Allows shooting up to 30x in HD format (22x in 4K) with high resolution.

 

Zoom Lens

 

High-Resolution 4K (UHD) / FHD, Progressive Image Recording

Compact Camera Head features a progressive MOS sensor with a total of 1.276-megapixels. The Recorder supports, in addition to 4K (UHD: 3840 x 2160) 29.97p/23.98p/25p * and FHD (1920 x 1080) 59.94p * images, multiformat image acquisition.

* 4K refers to UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution. The maximum resolution in 4K shooting mode via HDMI/SDI output is FHD (1920 x 1080) 59.94i/50i.

 

Five-Axis Hybrid Image Stabilizer

Stable Images with the Five-Axis Hybrid Image Stabilizer

  • Optical image stabilizer (HD/4K): Equipped with a powerful optical image stabilizer (OIS) system. Images are strongly corrected even in situations where the camera is unstable, such as when mounted onto an arm

  • Five-Axis Hybrid Image Stabilizer (HD): In HD mode, electronic image stabilization is added to the optical image stabilizer (OIS) system to detect and correct motions on five axes, including rolling motion.

 

Adjustable Image Quality under Surgical Light

  • Surgical Light mode: Equipped with a Color Reproduction Matrix mode for use under a surgical light.

  • 16-Axis independent color correction: This function provides an independent effect to each of the 16 phases and saturation levels of video images. With this feature, special surgical colors can be adjusted.

  • Optical ND filter: The optical ND filter can be manually switched (CLEAR, 1/4, 1/16, 1/64). Resolution degradation from closing down the iris is prevented even in the bright lighting of a surgical light. 

Network operation for IP Control and IP Streaming

LAN Terminal for IP Streaming and IP Control

The LAN terminal supports video and audio streaming distribution to networks, as well as file transfers and external control. Access from PCs and tablets is achieved by web browser, with no special app required. Control is also possible by a Panasonic remote camera system IP controller for integrated system operation.

  • IP control: Remote control from a PC, tablet or IP controller enables Rec Start/Stop, Clip Delete, and compact Camera Head control (Zoom, Focus, Iris, and Menu Settings).
  • IP streaming: Video and Audio IP streaming supported. Signals can be received and monitored by PCs, tablets, and IP decoders.
