On March 29th 2018, Futudent will triple it’s product portfolio by introducing two new cameras: the microCam and proCam. These newest innovations represent Futudent’s continued commitment to bringing the benefits of video to every dental professional. Video helps dental care providers explain and document more easily than ever before. This in turn helps patients replace fear with understanding and informs better decision-making for their treatment.

The new proCam is the world’s first miniature 4K (3840×2160@30 fps/ 13Mpix stills) dental camera and can be mounted on loupes or chair lights. It captures stunning video and high quality photography without interrupting the procedure, keeping the doctors focus on the patient.

The new microCam is a super-lightweight 18 grams camera, designed for easy loupe-mounted POV filming. It delivers clear full HD (1080p30) images from it’s professional Sony IMX sensor. These two new products join the eduCam to set the new state-of-the-art standard in dental video technology. Futudent founder, Lars Kåhre says, “We are very proud to once again be changing the game and innovating new and powerful ways to help dentists communicate and document better than ever before. Globally, videos are becoming more and more popular for educating patients, communicating with treatment teams, and is a superior tool for documentation. Futudent is dedicated to improving the dental experience for doctors and patients alike, and the proCam and microCam fits seamlessly into everyday dental workflow in all practices.”

Benefits of video
Video is already an integral part of dental education today. Educators and learners use video to demonstrate techniques, evaluate, document and present in universities, CE and private training. Futudent supports these applications, and extends the same benefits to private practice. Video helps dentists visually document and explain cases and treatments to patients and colleagues more easily than a mirror and a still camera. Dentists know that patients who understand their treatment plans are much more likely to accept the new procedure. Video is the easiest way to review treatments with patients and even send visual advice home straight to their smart phones.

Ease-of-use
All Futudent’s cameras are designed to be used on either loupes, chair lights, or a flexible arm, with each having different advantages depending on the application. At 18 grams the microCam is optimised for all day loupe mounting. The 26 gram proCam can also be worn on the loupes, but it’s high 4K resolution means that digital zooming can be used to capture clear, unpixelated close-up video and photographs from the chair light. The eduCam offers a good compromise of both price and performance.
