NDS Surgical Imaging Launches Color Correction Technology (CCT), Enhancing Accuracy and Consistency in Surgical Video

San Jose, CA, March 21, 2011 —NDS Surgical Imaging (NDSsi) today launched its proprietary Color Correction Technology (CCT)*. This dynamic color calibration solution is designed to fine tune the color response of surgical displays, uniquely correcting high-definition images in real-time on a pixel-by-pixel basis. The result is accurate, consistent color across all displays, conforming to international standards.

“Subtle differences between screens, and varying spec requirements from region to region have made color consistency a challenge until now,” said Jens Ruppert, Vice President & General Manager, Surgical Business Unit at NDSsi. “With the launch of NDSsi’s Color Correction Technology, we are solving this issue pixel-by-pixel, which is a great advantage to both surgeon and patient.”

Color Correction Technology calibrates a display so that the colors produced correspond to recognized or established standards, such as the BT.709 HDTV color standard, (the global standardized format of HDTV as recommended by The International Telecommunication Union’s radio telecommunications sector (ITU-R)). This correction can occur in real-time, thereby allowing the display to be reconfigured to satisfy the specific needs of the end user.

“It is critically important that surgical video is delivered accurately and reproducibly,” said Ron Hansen, Chief Technology Officer at NDSsi. “Our new Color Correction Technology sets a new benchmark of consistency across all screens, and across all geographies, whether installed on carts or booms, or in different rooms.”

NDSsi plans to make the new Color Correction Technology (CCT) available in all 26” Radiance® G2 surgical displays.
