All-in-One Medical Grade 4K Video Routing & Recording Solution
The market proven Evolution4K platform has expanded to become a scalable 4K video-over-IP routing solution. The touch screen user interface controls 4K surgical video routing, manages patent workflow, streams live video, and integrates with the Hospital Information System/PACS via the DICOM & HL7 standards. The Evolution4K IP is fully customizable using the platform-independent NDS API, allowing our partners to create a unique solution that is truly their own. Featuring a built-in SDVoE decoder that enables 4K video recording and archiving of any video source in the room.
Next Generation Hybrid Video Management Platform
The next generation VIMA 4K is based upon a modular architecture incorporating multiple 4K video management technologies. It’s a unique hybrid of a HDMI 2.0 matrix router and modern 4K video-over-IP technology. It also is capable of streaming live video, managing patent workflow, and integrating with the Hospital Information System/PACS via the DICOM & HL7 standards. The VIMA 4K is fully customizable using the platform-independent NDS API, allowing our partners to create a unique solution that is truly their own. It supports all 4K signal types including 12G-SDI, DisplayPort, and HDMI 2.0.
Video Image Management and Acquisition
VIMA™ combines an HDMI video matrix with pro-AV HDBaseT technology to benefit from long distance video transmission and power-over-ethernet capabilities using a CAT cabling infrastructure. It also incorporates HD video recording and interfaces with the hospital information system to access the DICOM patient worklist and push recorded content to PACS for archiving.
Medical Grade Video Scaling and Conversion
ScaleOR is a medical-grade video scaling device for use in healthcare environments. It provides the user with the flexibility to choose the appropriate input module per their needs to accommodate either analog or digital signal conversions and scaling. The video input is scaled and converted to 3G-SDI and DVI-D simultaneously. The scaled output format is selectable using a dip-switch setting or by using the on-screen-display menu (OSD). From the OSD menu, users can access advanced features such as RGB gain, brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, zoom, and scaling settings.
The 4 Medical IT Alliance
Adopting the SDVoE video technology for our IP solutions allowed us to co-found the 4 Medical IT alliance; an international collaboration and strategic partnership of medical technology companies and innovators committed to the development of an eco-system to create modern, safe and connected operating room environments.
- Big Blue Solutions Limited – A design company that has created Digital OR systems for leading endoscopic companies
- Zeevee Inc. – A founding member of the SDVoE Alliance and leading manufacturer in medical grade SDVoE endpoints
- Netgear Inc. – Also a founding member of the SDVoE Alliance and manufacturers of IP switches designed specifically for video over IP
Together we have created a complete eco-system for our OEMS and integrators to create leading edge technology operating room control providing seamless switching of lossless video, full workflow software with documentation, image grabbing and clip recording, and the ability to interoperate with any third party system over a standard IP 10 GbE VLAN network.
Our systems are full stack solutions meaning our customers can customize our software or make use of our robust and comprehensive API to develop their own application layer.
