NDS Surgical Imaging advances secure multi-destination video streaming beyond the operating room
San Jose, CA, December 15, 2014 — NDS Surgical Imaging (NDSsi) has introduced ExpandOR™, the industry’s first multi-node, bi-directional HD video/audio streaming device designed for the healthcare environment. Allowing secure streaming to multiple destinations simultaneously, ExpandOR helps increase clinical staff efficiency via enhanced hospital-wide communication with the operating room, as well as external targeted locations such as educational facilities.
ExpandOR streams HD-quality imaging up to 1080p@60Hz, and allows easy capture of clinical video and still images, as well as data storage via a USB connection. The secure multi-node functionality of ExpandOR allows the user to choose specific IP addresses, thereby streaming content to approved audiences only. With greater control over audience selection, procedural data and patient privacy are better protected.
Suitable for full-duplex HD video/audio conferencing applications, ExpandOR offers a DVI-D input, DVI-D and S-Video outputs, and supports RTSP/RTP/UDP streaming protocols. Open source firmware allows viewing of the video stream on laptops and PCs. The product’s compact, small-footprint design enables easy placement, saves space, and helps increase OR efficiency.
A standalone medical-grade streaming appliance certified for patient vicinity use, ExpandOR offers an optional password protected login, as well as a privacy mode feature, which allows OR staff to prevent the transmission of sensitive patient information at the touch of a button.
