4K Camera Head

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.


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.

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.

Advanced Imaging — For Improved Surgical Outcome

The EDOF function allows precise​ endoscopic observations through​ continuous broad focus and​ seamless magnification.​

Visualize the most minute vascular and mucosal patterns and with the help of Narrow Band Imaging (NBI).

Focus on your procedures in a constant sharp picture through 4K CMOS and the unique Continuous Auto Focus (CAF) and Extended Depth of field (EDOF) functions.

Discover impressive fluorescence guided surgery for better perfusion control and easier identification of biliary structures. Choose the IR gain that suits best and experience three selectable IR modes.
