Improved System Performance
Keep It Simple.
The front-runner in medical imaging cameras had a big problem- customers were beginning to return product because viewed images were off-color and color drifted over time. Access Optics brought its unique expertise in thin film coating to bear on the problem. The results were picture perfect.
The subtle interplay between imaging optics, illumination devices and video equipment can produce very sophisticated imaging issues. These issues create patient risk when they occur in a medical environment.
With years of experience in thin film applications, Access Optics quickly diagnosed the customer’s problems and identified design and specification factors contributing to color run-off and image instability. The solution: a new illumination filter involving a robust design, improved materials and 21st century thin film coating processes which led to steep slopes, high and neutral in-band transmission and superior thermal rejection characteristics.
With Access Optics‘s help, the endoscope manufacturer achieved high-definition, high-fidelity surgical images. The solution also eliminated end-user returns and complaints, and created for the company a new advantageous selling feature for its video imaging equipment.
