KARL STORZ is one of the pioneers in the field of endoscopic imaging. Milestones such as the first FULL HD endoscope camera worldwide was succeeded by the KARL STORZ FULL HD 3D system for endoscopy. Enhanced sensor technology with higher resolution and innovations in display technology as well as high-performance image processing electronics leads to continuous further developments.

The FULL HD system from KARL STORZ is modular in design and can, therefore, be optimally adapted to suit various requirements. This modular design principle makes it easier to expand the system and guarantees a high degree of future-proofing. Various IMAGE1 S™-Technologies enable surgeons to modify the endoscopic image through homogeneous illumination or by increasing the dynamic contrast. In addition, color hue shifting makes it easier to differentiate between tissue types.
Karl Storz has launched the new TELE PACK +
TELE PACK + is an ALL-IN-ONE system that combines a monitor, LED light source, FULL HD camera control unit and documentation with integrated network function in a portable and compact unit. A very strong feature is its compatibility with a wide range of rigid endoscopes, a NEW full HD video rhino- laryngoscope, and single-use video rhino-laryngoscopes. TELE PACK + is suitable for universal use in doctors’ offices, day clinics, emergency rooms, intensive care units and outpatient settings
