Discover incredibly fine details in true 4K image quality with the small and lightweight camera head featuring IR, NBI and YE observation mode. The Continuous Auto Focus (CAF) and Extended Depth of Field (EDOF) help to minimize distractions and broaden the focus area.

4K 3D Medical LCD Monitor

Benefit from high quality 4K UHD video images in 3D and 2D. The Advanced Image Multiple Enhancer (A.I.M.E) produces sharp, vivid image of structures without increasing noise.
The LMD-XH550MT and LMD-XH320MT have the​ HDR display function and HDR can be used with the combination with OTV-S700.​


Perform 3D procedures without compromises. The autoclavable, rigid ENDOEYE 3D provides comfortable, natural 3D perception with a wide field of view and realistic colors.


The ENDOEYE HD II is a video laparoscope that combines vivid visualization and comfortable control. The advanced chip-on-the-tip technology provides bright and clear images.


The ENDOEYE FLEX 3D delivers HDTV in 3D and is capable of 100° angulation in four directions for an excellent view in all situations, which cannot be achieved with conventional rigid system.

The Future is Digital

It starts with one platform that is tailored​ to your specific requirements. Always have​ access to the latest technology combined​ with system’s backward compatibility with a​ large legacy devices portfolio.​

Simply upgrade functions like 3D and IR to​ grow the system with your individual hospital​ needs via software upgrade to cover patients​ needs across specialties with only one​ system. ​

No need to switch to​ another platform to access new technologies​ soon via software activation.

Experience Sharp Images

True 4K Image Quality
The exclusive 4K image sensor from Sony produces true 4K image quality, enabling the camera head to deliver fine detail.

Continuous Auto Focus (CAF)
The CAF function maintains constant focus and eliminates the need for focus adjustments.

Extended Depth of Field (EDOF)
The EDOF function allows precise endoscopic observations through continuous broad focus and seamless magnification.

"Finally, light and ergonomic as you wish."

The systems are designed for better orientation in surgical plains and decision support for experienced professionals combining capabilities to reduce OR time and decrease incident rates. Young professionals could increase their own confidence level to be able to make the right decision and face a shorter learning curve.

Natural 3D Vision
Designed To Improve Procedure Results

Benefit from realistic 3D vision and a high depth of field. The natural image allows laparoscopy to be performed much more precisely for even better patient outcome.2 3D vision helps to save up to 35% and in average 21% operation time against standard 2D image procedures.3 Better usability will improve not only your surgical confidence but also your overall efficiency by helping to reduce OR time and accelerate patient recovery.3, 4, 5

ENDOEYE Rigid: Stable Horizon Without Compromise

Change the direction of view while maintaining a stable horizon. ENDOEYE Rigid 30° supports your continuous critical view and provides you with an always reliable orientation even at challenging viewing angles with its continuous mechanical rotation function.

ENDOEYE Flex: Flexibility without Compromise

Use the joystick to easily shift the field of view smoothly to the desired location. Get better access to narrow cavities and obtain the best viewing angle quickly of the organ being viewed with the short flexible tip of ENDOEYE Flex.

Fluorescence Imaging in Colectomy

How IR can support your clinical performance in colectomy:

  • Increased quality of blood perfusion assessment.
  • Better amendment of resection margin.
  • Significant reduction in anastomotic leakage.7,8,9,10

Economical benefits:

  • Better perfusion identification can prevent high-cost reoperations and reduce mortality.8
  • Better recognition of well-perfused areas and ischemic parts lowers risk of anastomotic leakage and prevents increase of hospital stay.9,10

Fluorescence Imaging in Cholecystectomy

How IR can support your clinical performance in cholecystectomy:

  • Easier identification of biliary structures.
  • Clear visualization of structures including fatty tissues during complicated cases.
  • Fewer bile duct injuries with IR than with white light.11,12,13

Economical benefits:

  • Save operation time in complicated cases such as acute cholecystitis and pancreatitis using IR.14
  • Better identification of vital structures can lower the risk of mortality and reduce total costs of hospital stay11,12
  • Decreased total length of hospital stay.13

Yellow Enhancement ​

Introducing Yellow Enhancement (YE), a powerful new feature in VISERA ELITE III. Designed to support structure identification, YE emphasizes yellow, enhancing contrast and making orange-yellow tissue appear clearly yellow. Perfect for hospitals with multiple specialties, VISERA ELITE III offers immediate decision support without the need for dye administration. Experience the versatility and convenience of YE with Camera head and ENDOEYE, no additional preparation steps required.
