Designed to deliver a high level of detail for microsurgery applications, the MCC-1000MD camera head combines three Exmor™ R CMOS sensors. This sensor, combined with our leading image-processing technology, means the MCC-1000MD offers the sensitivity of F20, a signal-to-noise ratio of 63 dB, and a horizontal resolution of 1,000 TV lines or more. The MCC-1000MD can capture Full HD images with 1,080 effective scanning lines even in progressive format, allowing you to see details and movement in videos with greater clarity than in interlaced format. Simultaneous video outputs from two MCC-1000MD units can be synchronized, allowing capture of HD 3D stereoscopic video images. These 3D images can be displayed on Sony’s 4K 3D surgical monitors, such as the LMD-X310MT and LMD-X550MT, and can be recorded by our HVO-3300MT 3D medical recorder.
A high sensitivity of F20 means the MCC-1000MD can capture remarkably clear video and still images even in near darkness. This is especially useful for procedures involving areas of the anatomy that are difficult to illuminate during a particularly intricate microsurgery. This level of sensitivity allows the camera to capture more natural colors and suppress noise caused by higher gain. Ideal for ophthalmic posterior surgical procedures that involve the retina and optic nerve areas. The camera can also capture and reproduce very brightly lit areas at standard exposure level.
The MCC-1000MD is designed for modern clinical environments. The Picture Profile function offers a wide range of pre-set image controls. The OR staff can simply select one of the six picture profiles that match various shooting conditions in Ophthalmic surgery. The MCC-1000MD also features other image-adjusting features such as Auto Exposure, Knee, Digital Zoom, Picture Profile, Picture Flip, and GenLock. The Picture Flip function can turn the camera picture horizontally, vertically, or both horizontally and vertically according to the microscope.
The MCC-1000MD has enough output flexibility to connect with medical modalities, with HDMI, HD-SDI (3G-SDI), S-Video, and composite video connectivity built in. This makes it easy to integrate the camera seamlessly into your current set up—whether it’s SD or HD—while ensuring you’re future-proofed for migration to any other workflow. All outputs are simultaneously active, so it can be used with a second or even third monitor in the operating room.
For ophthalmological examination, which requires the use of fluorescein dyes, the MCC-1000MD is equipped with a fluorescein mode that produces optimal image quality when shooting objects that yield fluorescence by reacting to fluorescein. It adjusts the saturation and hue for only the fluorescent color.
The MCC-1000MD can be attached to a range of widely-used surgical microscopes using the optional Sony CCMA-2DAR accessory, a compatible camera adapter. This enables surgeons to acquire 2D video images of ophthalmology and neurology microsurgical procedures in Full HD quality.
The MCC-1000MD can be connected to two foot switches, allowing hands-free control over functions such as switching picture profile and pausing the image on-screen.
Outstanding image quality, sensitivity and versatility make the MCC-1000MD an ideal camera for demanding operating rooms and surgical centers. But its versatility also lends itself to day-to-day use in hospital examination rooms and consultation suites.
