Redefining the image of endoscopy
The endogo® Portable Endoscopic Camera is the world’s first battery operated, portable, hand-held endoscopic video camera with integrated viewing and archiving capability which fits in the palm of your hand. The endogo® can be used with current optical flexible or rigid endoscopes in any clinical setting requiring simple, inexpensive, and easy to use video endoscopy with/without archiving the examination. Once the camera is turned on, it is ready for live viewing of an examination on the 2.4” TFT flip screen. Examination may continue without recording or the user may take video or still photos of the area to be examined.
Video compression in DV quality is performed using MPEG-4 video compression. Stills are compressed using a JPEG compression algorithm: both are industry standard methods for data compression. After use, images may be transported from the removable flash RAM drive (SD RAM) or transmitted via USB-2 to another computing device.
Image viewing can also be performed live via the USB-2 cable to a computing device or via the AV output to a compatible video monitor.* Voice recordings may also be captured while recording to annotate clinical findings.
*WARNING Accessory equipment connected to the analog and digital interfaces must be certified according to the respective IEC standards. Any person who connects additional equipment to the signal output configures a medical system, and is therefore responsible for ensuring that the system complies with the requirements of the system standard IEC 60601-1.
