Olympus CV-180 Processor

  • Olympus Endoscopy Systems

The Olympus CV 180 Video Processor offers a picture-in-picture display for any combination of endoscopic, fluoroscopic, ultrasound, laparoscopic, and images from the endoscope position detecting unit. The Scope IDTM function for easy endoscopy suite management and for next-generation system expansion. It has the Automatic Iris which eliminates the need for switching between Peak and Average required in conventional manual adjustment.


Olympus CV-180 Processor Features

  • Equipped with high-resolution HDTV imaging capability to assure the best possible image quality for endoscopy and laparoscopy
  • Compatible with EVIS 100/130/40 Series and EVIS EXERATM 160 Series scopes as well as bronchoscopes and surgical endoscopes
  • Narrow Band ImagingTM (NBI) to enhance the visibility of fine capillaries and the mucosal tissues in the GI tract
  • Two types of structure enhancement are available — the original Type A for observation of larger mucosal tissues with high contrast, and the new Type B for observation of smaller tissues, such as capillaries
  • Electronic magnification enlarges moving or still images at the touch of a button by 1.2x or 1.5x with no loss of quality
