Sony MCC-1000MD (MCC1000MD) Medical Grade Full HD Surgical Camera

The Sony MCC-1000MD  (MCC1000MD) medical HD camera is built on Sony’s expertise and knowledge, accumulated over decades as a world-leading supplier of high-quality broadcast and professional products. This
new medical HD camera features the latest generation image sensor technology – and that makes all the difference – offering outstanding low-light sensitivity compared to traditional cameras on the market.
Discover the amazing difference that Sony’s latest generation HD medical camera can bring to your surgical video. It’s an ultra-sensitive camera for low-light microsurgery conditions.

Designed for microsurgery applications
Because of its high sensitivity to low light, the MCC-1000MD camera is particularly ideal for low-light surgical applications, such as ophthalmic and neurological procedures. The MCC1000MD’s compact and lightweight design allows the camera’s C-mount head to be easily mounted on most existing surgical microscopes. Pair the camera with Sony’s HD medical monitors so that everyone in the O.R. can see the HD surgical footage. Or record the video with Sony medical recorders and share the HD surgical footage with clinicians and colleagues, at conferences and symposiums, and for surgical training and education.

Capture minute surgical details
• The Sony MCC-1000MD medical HD camera is equipped with the latest three-chip technology to deliver higher illumination and excellent color resolution in low light.
• The Sony MCC-1000MD camera head combines (3) 1/2.8-inch type Exmor R™ CMOS sensors, which can capture full HD (1920 x 1080).
• It delivers a signal-to-noise ratio of 63 dB.
• It produces a horizontal resolution of 1000 TV lines or more.

High sensitivity designed for near darkness
With a high sensitivity of F20, the MCC-1000MD can capture remarkably clear video and still images in near darkness for procedures involving areas of the anatomy that are difficult to illuminate during particularly intricate microsurgery. This level of sensitivity allows the camera to capture more natural colors and suppress noise caused by higher gain. It is ideal for ophthalmic posterior surgical procedures that involve the retina and optic nerve areas as well as neurosurgical procedures. The camera can also capture and reproduce very bright lit areas at the standard exposure level.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode
The Sony MCC-1000MD supports HLG and 2.4 wide gamma* in HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode when used in conjunction with an HDR display, offering a wider range of brightness levels to capture surgical images with even greater color contrast and accuracy compared to non-HDR cameras and displays. When in HDR mode, objects with surfaces such as wetness, dark shadows, or glossiness are also visually improved.

Picture profile function
The camera features a Picture Profile menu that adjusts and changes the parameters to determine the characteristics of the image. The MCC-1000MD features six pre-installed picture profiles, which match various shooting conditions in ophthalmic surgery and fluorescein observation.

Useful camera functions
Other image adjustment features include 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.

Various outputs for flexible connectivity
The MCC-1000MD has enough output flexibility to fit into a range of medical environments with HDMI, SDI (3G-SDI), S video, and Composite video. All of the camera’s outputs are active simultaneously, so it can be used with a second or even third monitor in the operating room.

3D surgical images can be captured in 3D
Simultaneous video outputs from (2) Sony MCC-1000MD units can be synchronized, allowing the capture of HD 3D stereoscopic video images. These 3D images can be displayed on Sony’s 3D 4K displays, (LMD-X310MT or LMD-X550MT), and recorded with Sony’s HVO-3300MT medical 3D video recorder
