We strive to deliver peace of mind to patients and health care professionals all over the world protecting human health through surgical procedures.
We aim to become a pioneer of novel operating room that only we can create leveraging all the product, technology and service assets from Sony and Olympus, which are based on their core technologies of digital imaging and healthcare network.
Sony Olympus Medical Solutions was established to bring innovation to medical devices and operating rooms while contributing to both healthcare professionals and people receiving healthcare. Our uniqueness derives from our synergies gained from Sony's cutting-edge imaging technology and Olympus's achievements in medical devices beyond the boundaries of industrial fields.
Sony has the necessary technologies to create unconventional rigid endoscopes. For example, imaging and reproducing technology with high definition 4K ( *) videos and 3D, laser technology that helps see lesions, and image processing technology that visualizes the results. Furthermore, Sony is familiar with robotics required for the drive and control of the devices.
On the other hand, Olympus, known as the worldwide leader in developing endoscopes, has accumulated their proprietary technology and expertise. Networks with healthcare professionals enhance the analysis for the needs and significant insights of healthcare trends.
Sony and Olympus collaborate to complement their technologies and knowledge, enabling creation of surgical devices and system integration of operating rooms that were initially impossible individually.* 4K: Four times the resolution of full HD. Provides high definition even in magnified views.
In alliance with Sony Corporation and Olympus Corporation, we have developed a "4K Surgical Endoscopy System".
Sony Olympus Medical Solutions has brought together the core technologies and expertise of Sony (image sensors, image and signal processing, optical transmission, 4K imaging) and Olympus (medical products R&D, deep understanding of the needs of the medical community) and combined them to optimize its constituent elements and the entire video processing technology for medical devices in the development of products. Specifically, we led R&D for the centerpiece products of this system, including the "eye" of the endoscope - the 4K camera head - and the 4K camera control unit that manages the captured images.
This product will be sold through Olympus's sales channels, as an offering in Olympus's line of surgical endoscopy systems. For more information, visit the Olympus website.
Sony Imaging Products & Solutions Inc. ("Sony"), Olympus Corporation, and Sony Olympus Medical Solutions Inc. jointly developed the ORBEYE Surgical Microscope, incorporating 4K 3D video technology as well as high-definition and three-dimensional digital images to support precision surgery. Olympus Corporation announced the launch of this product.
Sony Olympus Medical Solutions has brought together the core technologies of Sony and Olympus and led fundamental R&D for the entire system including the lens, light source, and image sensor for image input, as well as the monitor and recorder for image output. Combining the 4K 3D video and miniaturization technologies of Sony and expertise of the surgical microscope business and medical device development in addition to the needs/techniques of the medical community of Olympus, Sony Olympus Medical Solutions has optimized its constituent elements and the video processing technology in 4K 3D surgical microscope systems.
