GigE-Vision®-Compliant Receivers for the Networked Operating Room
Posted in Bio-Medical, Electronics & Computers, Electronics, Medical, Diagnostics, Briefs, MDB on Saturday, 01 January 2011

A new type of system offers ultra-low-latency image transmission and low jitter for surgical environments.

When vision system integrators are designing systems for hospital operating rooms, they have a number of technologies to choose from. The video interfacing technology with which the system will transmit imaging data to PCs or other system elements has traditionally been limited to point-to-point connections. However, as medical diagnostics and image-guided surgery grow in sophistication and demand, the need for a networked video architecture in the operating room also grows.
