4K cameras — bringing Hollywood to the Sunshine Coast

Thursday, 30 March, 2017

The Sunshine Coast Private Hospital, Qld, has announced an Australian first with its inclusion of specialist Ultra High-Definition (4K) cameras to its operating theatres. In a win for patients and doctors alike, the million-dollar system offers four times the resolution of the conventional high definition screens surgeons use and 64 times as many colours. Ultra High-Definition (4K) is currently used to film Hollywood blockbusters.

Sunshine Coast orthopaedic surgeon Dr George Parker explained, “The clarity, contrast and colour are far better (with 4K cameras) and there is a greater depth of field. You can more easily differentiate between different tissues and ligaments. This is incredibly important as greater resolution is directly related to better patient outcomes. During surgery, just a few millimetres can make a big difference,” he said.
