Medigus Adds New Robust Miniature Camera to Its micro ScoutCam(TM) PortfolioOMER, Israel, Sept. 2, 2015 - 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 a new product to its micro ScoutCam™ portfolio of products — the micro ScoutCam™ 6.5 Lum, an innovative new CMOS video camera that provides intense illumination in a small size which was originally custom-designed for the aeronautics industry. This camera builds on Medigus' proprietary technology with the addition of intense and Fail-Safe illumination capability, which makes it ideal for industrial companies looking to obtain quality images from dark and narrow spaces. In addition, the camera's mechanical rigidity enables it to endure long-term implementation in low or no maintenance environments, including outer space.
"The micro ScoutCam 6.5 Lum delivers a unique solution to an existing challenge faced by many companies in the industrial sector—a current lack of visibility in dark and enclosed areas— which is a challenge and limiting factor for testing and conducting thorough inspections," said Yaron Silberman, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Medigus. "The micro ScoutCam 6.5 Lum consists of six integrated LEDs that provide intense illumination, which are connected in parallel to optimize the camera's reliability and endurance. Additionally, its robust exterior gives the camera durability against severe environments, from inspecting an inner tube to withstanding outer space."
micro ScoutCam 6.5 Lum represents the newest offering in the micro ScoutCam portfolio and is its most mechanically rigid camera to-date. Its robust exterior makes it well-suited for incorporation into flexible or rigid devices within such fields as non-destructive testing, micro drilling inspection, cavities inspection, tube inspection and robotic tooling.
