Olympus CV-1500 Video Processors

The EVIS X1 CV-1500 Video System Center combines video processor and LED light source in one box, resulting in a more compact and lightweight design. Additionally, cross compatibility between EVIS EXERA III and EVIS LUCERA ELITE lead to a vastly extended portfolio of compatible endoscopes. The CV-1500 features multiple special observation modes that support physicians in every step during endoscopic procedures.




EVIS X1 CV-1500 Video Processors

A Unified Platform with 5 LED Spectrum Technology


A Unified Platform with 5 LED Spectrum Technology
By integrating the LED light source with the video processer, Olympus has developed a powerful system that is much more compact and lightweight than the predecessors*1.

Broad Compatibility
The CV-1500 can be connected to many different types of endoscopes, providing access to a wide variety of endoscopy-supporting functions.

Enhanced Observations
In addition to conventional white light and NBI (Narrow Band Imaging) and AFI (Auto Fluorescence Imaging) observation, the CV-1500 offers three other powerful enhanced observations to improve diagnostic and therapeutic capability:

  • TXI (Texture & Color Enhancement Imaging) optimizes the structure, color tone and brightness of the mucosal surface.
  • RDI (Red Dichromatic Imaging) improves visibility of deep blood vessels and bleeding points.
  • BAI-MAC (Brightness Adjustment Imaging with MAintenance of Contrast) improves brightness in darker portions.


Intuitive, User-friendly Functions
With One-Touch Connector for quick, easy connection and no need for white balance adjustment*2, setup is simplified,with the aim of streamlining workflow and accelerating procedure time. Touch-sensitive panel facilitates intuitiveoperation, while convenient functions like Pre-freeze and MyCV mode ensure user-friendly working environment.

Downtime is reduced thanks to the use of LED bulbs that last years without needing replacement.

Classification (Medical Electrical Equipment)

Type of protection against electric shock

Class I

Degree of protection against electric shock of applied part

Depend on applied part.

(The degree of protection against electric shock of this product is BF type if the mounting part to be connected to this product is BF type. However CF type is not subject to combination in this product.)

Degree or protection against explosion

The video system center should be kept away from flammable gases.

Digital signal output


User settings

The function settings for up to 20 users can be stored.

Color tone adjustment

Adjust the color tone of each endoscopic image for White light observation mode, NBI observation mode, and RDI observation mode.

  • Red adjustment : ±8 steps
  • Blue adjustment : ±8 steps
  • Chroma adjustment : ±8 steps

Automatic gain control (AGC)

The image can be electronically amplified when the light is inadequate due to the distal end of the endoscope being too far from the object.


  • H (High) : Darkens the dark part and brightens the bright part.
  • L (Low) : Brightens the dark part and darkens the bright part.


Brightness adjustment with maintenance of contrast


The iris modes can be switched.

  • Auto : The brightness is adjusted based on the brightest part of the central part and the average

brightness of the periphery part.

  • Peak : The brightness is adjusted based on the brightest part of the endoscopic image.
  • Average :The brightness is adjusted based on the average brightness of the endoscopic image.

Image enhancement settings

Fine patterns or edges in the endoscopic images can be enhanced electrically to increase the image sharpness.

  • Enhancement type A : Emphasizes the pattern and contour of the endoscopic image.
  • Enhancement type B : Emphasizes the finer parts than structure emphasis type A.

Switching the enhancement modes

The enhancement level can be selected from 3 levels (OFF, 1, 2, and 3)

Image size selection

The size of the endoscopic image can be selected from 2 modes. (Except SDTV)

Electric zoom

Switch between mode 1, mode 2, and mode 3.


Switch between PIP and POP.

Aspect ratio

Switch between 16:9 and 4:3. (Except SDTV)


Freeze the endoscopic image.


The image with the least blur is selected from the images captured in the set time period before freeze operation and displayed.

Optical-digital observation

The optical-digital observation can be performed. The endoscope compatible with the optical-digital observation is required.

  • NBI observation : This observation mode uses the narrow band light.
  • RDI observation : This observation mode uses the red dichromatic lights.
  • AFI observation : This observation mode uses the blue light.
  • TXI observation : This observation mode enhances color, texture and brightness.

Beginning and ending examination

Beginning and ending examination timing can be set interlock with the particular operation.

Custom switch

Assign specific functions to the following buttons.

  • Remote switches (Up to 5)
  • Foot switches (Up to 2)
