China Market Report for Image Capture and Recording Devices 2016 – MedCore
The popularity of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is continually growing as the utilization of MIS has
resulted in reduced patient stays and costs, which have been accompanied by improvements in operating
room efficiency. To view the operating field during an MIS procedure, a surgeon uses a surgical camera in
combination with an endoscope, which is inserted into the patient. Still images and videos from these
endoscopic cameras and from overhead cameras are then captured by an image capture and recording
device. This allows images and videos from an operation to be reviewed at a later date. As a result, most
image capture devices are bought as a platform coupled with a surgical camera and a surgical light source.

China Market Report for Image Capture and Recording Devices
There is a wide range of products offered by the various players in this market. Very basic systems are
much lower in cost and have the ability to record images in HD; however, they cannot record video in HD
and have no integration ability.
Mid-level devices are able to record all input in HD and can be connected to patient information systems,
which can tie in the new images with hospital records. These systems are usually customizable, so usually
the need of the hospital will determine the price range as a result of the number of features associated with
More advanced systems offer additional features such as dual channel recording (so two different imaging
systems can be recorded at the same time), DICOM and PACS compatibility and secure wireless system
connectivity within hospitals. One feature that is becoming more prominent with these systems is their
ability to share pictures to secure applications on tablets so physicians are able to view them at any point
without relying on hard physical copies. The physician also has the ability to edit and manipulate the

China Market Report for Surgical Light Sources 2016 – MedCore
Surgical light sources provide illumination for endoscopic cameras, surgical headlights and surgical
microscopes. The concentrated light is transmitted from a base unit to the destination through a fiber optic
cable made up of very pure glass fibers. The base unit contains the illuminating bulb, which can vary from
one light source to another. During minimally invasive surgery (MIS) procedures, endoscopic cameras
rely on light from the light source, as there is essentially no background illumination. Generally, overhead
surgical lighting is adequate in invasive, open procedures. However, if additional illumination is required,
a surgical headlight can be worn by the surgeon. The majority of surgical headlights use xenon. Therefore,
surgical light sources are used in both MIS and open surgeries.

European Markets for Hybrid Operating Suites 2016 – MedCore
Some integrated operating theaters (OTs) can include an imaging system such as a C-arm, which allows for intra-operative imaging, or a navigation system; these are referred to as hybrid theaters. Surgical displays are utilized in essentially all operating theaters (OTs) in Europe. They are used for displaying images and videos captured by surgical cameras as well as procedure-related information.
