The ARRISCOPE is the world’s first high-definition, fully digital surgical microscope for stereoscopic viewing. For the first time in surgical microscopy, the operator’s visualization of the surgical site is not via an optical image path; instead the surgeon sees in his binocular a high-quality 3D digital image.

The digital image can be recorded and multiplied without any quality losses. Surgical assistants, students and staff can therefore follow an operation procedure in all its details and in three dimensions, bringing immense advantages for education and training.
On top of its immediate benefits, the digital platform offers the promise of further enhancements as new options to enrich the digital microscope image are developed.
As a global leader in motion picture technology, with nearly 100 years of innovative product development experience, ARRI is uniquely qualified to also play a pioneering role in medical digital image acquisition.
Used for many Oscar®-winning movies, the ARRI ALEXA digital camera system is the core engine of the ARRISCOPE, delivering high-contrast, sharp and brilliant high-definition images of the surgical field.
From the sensor the raw image signal goes into a high-performance computer, where all of the image processing takes place. This efficient image processing unit does not convert the raw sensor data into a 3D video signal until any color conversion for different display devices or sensitometric optimization has been carried out. By manipulating the images in their raw state, full image quality is maintained and a perfect picture is seen on all displays.
The world’s first digital binocular gives surgeons new freedom.
The custom-developed ARRI CMOS sensor is unique in its optimal balance between image sharpness on the one hand and high dynamic range, high sensitivity and a low noise floor on the other. This results in the best overall image quality for medical purposes, as proven by the sensor’s many cinematic applications. The sensor even has a higher simultaneous dynamic range and a wider spectral sensitivity than the human eye, allowing the possibility of enriching the visible image with additional information coming from invisible radiation such as IR.
The novel, multispectral LED illumination system of the ARRISCOPE delivers very bright and highly uniform illumination, optimized for representation on a video monitor. The cold light, without any UV or IR components, protects the patient by avoiding heat impairment.
Color temperature can be adjusted by the multispectral LED, allowing the image representation to be optimized.
The ARRISCOPE 6-axis stand is vibration-cushioned, moves easily, stabilizes immediately after positioning and features an optimized transient response. The state-of-the-art, pneumatic-driven mechanism is perfectly balanced, enabling smooth, precise movements for enhanced surgeon comfort and therefore ideal patient care.
