DepthView - Surgical Visualization Camera with Enhanced Depth of Field


High resolution and high depth of field are often conflicting requirements in surgical imaging. As a replacement to surgical microscopes, INO has developed a digital camera technology with three fold improvement of depth of field suitable for real-time surgical visualization. 


  • Frame rate: 60 Hz
  • Image resolution: Full HD
  • Depth of field enhancement factor: 3X
  • Working distance: 32 cm


  • Neurosurgery
  • Ophthalmic surgery
  • Spinal surgery
  • Head and neck surgery


  • Depth of field enhancement factor
  • Frame rate
  • Working distance
  • Field of view
  • Zoom lens

Resolution vs depth of field tradeoff

In optical imaging systems, a high resolution is obtained by using high numerical aperture lens. However, increasing the lens numerical aperture creates a shallow depth of field. Resolution and depth of field are therefore conflicting requirements.

Through a combination of  digital processing and novel objective design, INO has developed an imaging system that  delivers 3 times the depth of field while maintaining the same resolution and operating at 60 frames per second.
