OMER, Israel, June 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medigus Ltd. (Nasdaq:MDGS) (TASE:MDGS), a medical device company developing minimally invasive endosurgical tools and a leader in direct visualization technology, announced today the addition of micro ScoutCam(TM) 3.45 to its micro ScoutCam(TM) portfolio of products. micro ScoutCam 3.45 is a CMOS video camera that adapts Medigus' proprietary technology to offer a cost-effective option to manufacturers of inspectional devices looking for quality images from a micro camera to visually access small or narrow spaces in the human body or in industrial settings but have been limited due to cost.
"We anticipate that our latest offering will be attractive for companies that are currently unable to meet their product design goals due to price barriers on existing microvisual technology. micro ScoutCam 3.45 delivers a balance of size, image quality and price that can easily be tailored to meet a range of customer needs", said Yaron Silberman, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Medigus. "Due to the camera's intuitive design, it is ready for integration into various existing devices, thereby potentially offering further savings."
micro ScoutCam 3.45 boasts a high-end objective and a CMOS sensor that is specifically designed for miniature dimensions. The camera head is already equipped with optics within a small diameter, making it particularly well-suited for incorporation into flexible or rigid endoscopic devices.
