The video capture of surgery is becoming widely used but the colors reproduced by conventional RGB-based video systems differ from the original. In this work, 6-band multispectral video was applied to the open surgery for highfidelity color reproduction, and medical doctors visually evaluated the reproduced image quality. As a result, 1) the 6- band video system was rated significantly higher in "color reproducibility," "fidelity," and "material appearance." 2) The perceived color differences between 6-band/RGB and 6-band/3-band were significant. 3) Color videos from 6-band data were transmitted via network, and approximately enough quality was obtained with 15Mbps bit rate. These results show the potential of multispectral technology for the improvement of surgical video quality.
