Abstract: KARL STORZ presents its new full HD camera platform IMAGE 1 SPIESTM, a new milestone in endoscopic imaging. IMAGE 1 SPIESTM stands for Storz professional image enhancement system and provides users with versatile visualization options for operation and diagnosis. Three innovative technologies for visualization are integrated in the new camera system: SPIES CLARATM, SPIES CHROMATM and SPIES SPECTRATM. SPIES CLARATM provides homogeneous illumination of the endoscopic image by brightening dark areas. This is determined dynamically, in order to make up the optimum image brightness. SPIES CHROMATM is a technology for contrast enhancement, it which display of structures is intensified. With the third technology, SPIES SPECTRATM, certain areas of the color spectrum are more strongly emphasized with a color shift. The goal of all SPIESTM visualization modes is that, by differentiating tissue structures from one another, the user gets the best possible support in the operating room. A simple differentiation of the tissue structures will ultimately lead to safer and more efficiently performed operations.
