EVIS X1™ Video System Center

The EVIS X1 CV-1500 Video System Center combines video processor and LED light source in one box, resulting in a compact and lightweight design.1 The CV-1500 features multiple special observation modes that support physicians in every step during endoscopic procedures.

Key Benefits

In addition to conventional white light and NBI™ (Narrow Band Imaging™) technology, the CV-1500 offers three other powerful enhanced observations to improve diagnostic and therapeutic capability:

  • TXI™ Technology (Texture & Color Enhancement Imaging) optimizes the structure, color tone and brightness of the mucosal surface.2
  • RDI™ Technology (Red Dichromatic Imaging) improves visibility of deep blood vessels and bleeding points.2
  • BAI-MAC™ (Brightness Adjustment Imaging with MAintenance of Contrast) technology improves brightness in darker portions of the image.2

TXI, RDI, NBI and BAI-MAC technologies are not intended to replace histopathological sampling as a means of diagnosis.

With One-Touch Connector and no need for white balance adjustment,3 setup is simplified, with the aim of streamlining workflow and accelerating procedure time. Touch-sensitive panel facilitates instinctive operation, while convenient functions like Pre-freeze and MyCV mode assist in creating a user-friendly working environment. Downtime may be reduced thanks to the use of LED bulbs that have been designed to last years without needing replacement.4

Complications from an endoscopic procedure may include, but are not limited to, reaction to sedation, bleeding, perforation, infection, and/or pancreatitis. Never apply the endoscope connected to the CV-1500 video system center to the heart or any area near the heart; leakage current from this Type BF-applied part may be dangerous and cause ventricular fibrillation or otherwise seriously affect the cardiac function of the patient. Improper disinfection of the video system center may result in operator and/or patient infection. For complete indications, contraindications, warnings and cautions, please reference the Instructions for Use (IFU) that accompanied the EVIS X1™ CV-1500 video system center.

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.

BAI-MAC™ Technology

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 sharpnes.
· 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 with compatible endoscope.

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