ThirdEye HD EVO UNI systems

You can use our ThirdEye dental cameras both in your own dental office, in the dental office of one of your colleagues, at educational training courses or at dental congresses in your own country or abroad. All you need is one of our ThirdEye dental camera sets (camera, mini camera stand, cable and connection box), some Impregum® for temporary mounting of the miniature camera stand and some cable ties to fix the camera cable along the dental light linkage. A full-hd video monitor and/or a full-hd video projector should be available anywhere in the world. If you want to record the live transmission on site, you can use a small and lightweight dvr (=digital video recorder) or record it on your laptop´s hard disc (with capture card)

The whole system easily fits in your hand baggage and doesn´t weigh more than 2 kilograms !

 

One word regarding the 4K hype.
In our opinion 4K cameras/monitors do not make sense in a dental office. That´s because of the physiology of our human eyes.
The reason: To see the difference between full-HD and 4k images/videos on a 25" monitor (22 inches being the diameter of the average dental monitor !) the dentist has to watch the screen from a distance of 1,5 ft or 46cm to see any difference between full-HD and 4k. For 22" monitors it is even closer. For more informations about that issue, please read the following article:

http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/by-size/size-to-distance-relationship

On the other hand 4K is not 4K. If a sports camera (action cam) delivers 4k videos at a high compression, you´ll see artifacts like pixelatin on your monitor later, which will degrade the overall image quality. Much more important than pixel numbers in dentistry is a good white balance (manual or automatic) for perfect reproduction of colors on your monitor !

Monitors

We strongly recommend using full-HD monitors or tv devices with a 1.920x1.080 pixels resolution

Modern monitors or tv devices normally have both component(YUV), HDMI  and VGA/DVI inputs.

If you buy a new dental unit we do not recommend buying an integrated monitor. Why ?
A monitor, which is new and up-to-date today might be old-fashioned next year. If you have a monitor installed, that came with the dental unit, you might not be able to exchange the monitor against a better one.

 

Where to place the monitor in the surgery ?

The position of the monitor in your surgery depends on your wishes and your requirements. You want to use the monitor to show intraoral details (cavities, bleeding gums, crowns...) to your patients ? In this case the monitor should be mounted to the dental light tubing beside the dental chair. If you have enough space on the ceiling above or on the wall opposite the dental chair, then you might decide to buy a big screen LCD or plasma tv. That´s a good idea, if you want to show your patients some DVD videos for relaxation.

Attention: Plasma monitor screens may not be hang horizontally beneath the ceiling  !

You want to use the monitor merely as your preview monitor during treatments or surgeries ?  In that case we recommend to place the monitor on a cabinet or cart behind the head rest of the dental chair. Thus both the dentist and his/her dental assistant have the best view during the surgery.

Monitor mountings

There are many possibilities to integrate a monitor in the dental surgery.

  • Wall mount

    view according to placement, behind the patient´s head, opposite the patient or lateral of dental chair

  • Ceiling mount ( best view for the patient only; good for showing DVD videos or video presentations)

  • mounted to dental light tubing (perfect view for dentist, assistant and patient)

A good buying source for monitor mounts apart from dental suppliers you can find at www.monitorhalterung.de (German website, we can help finding the right monitor mount!)

 

HD video recordings without computer

To archive your video recordings and photos without a computer you have the following options :

  • semi-professional/amateur digital full-HD video recorder with (internal or external hard disk) = DVR, inexpensive

  • professional digital full-HD recorder with hard disk (mostly used by broadcast companies), very expensive

  • using an internal microSD card for full-HD video recordings and photos (ThirdEyeUNI and ThirdEyeEVO), free

HD video recordings to computer hard disk 

If you want to connect the ThirdEyeHD or ThirdEyeUNI dental camera to your computer, view the camera images on a computer monitor and save the recorded videos directly to the computer hard disk, we recommend an external digital full-HD video recorder with USB2.0 output (or USB3.0, thunderbold) or a built in video capture card with capability to record full-HD videos (e.g. PCIe)
If you want to capture high definition signals with our ThirdEyeHD dental camera you´ll need a HD-capable video capture card or external device. There are not many of these cards or external devices available yet.

Please let us know your application and your budget and we will recommend you the best video capture card or digital video recorder.

 

 

Editing and archiving photos

To archive and edit the grabbed photos you´ll need a so-called imaging software. There are many dental office softwares, which have an imaging solution included already. Every manufacturer of intraoral cameras supplies such a software, too. An economy-priced alternative for archiving and editing your grabbed images is the ACDSee® software

 

Editing and archiving videos

There are many video editing softwares on the market,  which are capable to edit full-hd videos. 
They reach from cheap to very expensive. It´s up to your requirements and your ambition, which one to choose. Here are only some of the available video editing softwares. Good and cheap choices are Video Studio (Magix) or Vegas Video Studio (Sony). For the professional video editor we recommend Apple´s Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere CS, Canopus Edius or Sony Vegas Pro (which is my favorite). These softwares can fulfill any wish of any video editing maniac. 

All for free are IMovie for Apple computers and for Windows Movie Maker for Windows systems.
