Award-winning endoscope.

Direct Coupled Interface (DCI) technology from Karl Storz Endoscopy-America, Inc., received a 2000 "New Product of the Year" award at the ninth annual meeting of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons (SLS) and Endo Expo in Orlando, Florida.

DCI capabilities include auto rotation and one-handed push-button control. Its proprietary Auto Rotation System (ARS) technology maintains an upright image orientation at all times, regardless of endoscope position. Surgeons enjoy single-handed control of the entire endoscope camera system without having to rotate the camera in relation to the endoscope eyepiece, leaving a free hand for use with other instruments. And the system's easy-to-handle design replaces the traditional eyepiece assembly with a "snap-in" coupling mechanism between the telescope and camera head.
