Paper Abstract

Present endoscopic systems for routine use are mostly based on Standard Definition TV and analog data transmission for image acquisition and presentation. Accordingly, the intrinsic optical quality of most endoscopes in terms of spatial and dynamic resolution as well as color quality is not fully exploited by this technology. Our newly developed high-definition TV system takes advantage of cutting-edge digital and analog processing stages, combined with real- time digital image processing algorithms, to achieve a substantially improved overall image quality.
