The Sony MCC500MD (MCC-500MD) medical video camera is the latest edition to Sony’s comprehensive line-up. This affordably priced camera features the latest generation image sensor technology for better low light sensitivity than traditional 1/3 sized image sensor technology for superb image reproduction capability. The camera consists of a compact camera control unit and one camera head with 1/2.9-type single (1920 x 1080) Exmor™ CMOS sensor, featuring 2.07 million pixels. By combining the Exmor image sensor with Sony’s image processing technologies, the MCC-500MD provides an excellent sensitivity of F5.6, a remarkable signal-to noise ratio of 55db, and a high horizontal resolution of 900 TV lines or more.
The MCC500MD (MCC-500MD) has enough output flexibility to fit a range of medical environments, with HDMI, HD-SDI (3G-SDI), S Video, and Composite video connectivity. Furthermore, Full HD (1920 x 1080) quality 60-fps progressive scan technology results in smooth images with reduced blur when HDMI or HD-SDI is used – ideal for viewing fast- moving images. All of the camera’s outputs are active simultaneously, so it is ideal for use with 2nd or 3rd monitors in the operating room. Together with Sony’s medical-grade recorders and monitors, the MCC-500MD is the ideal solution for capturing and recording microsurgery applications. The MCC-500MD’s compact and light-weight design allows the camera’s C-mount head to be easily mounted on most existing surgical microscopes.
