VIEWMEDIC SMART OR

Multimedia technology is increasingly taking centre stage in the design of modern surgical facilities. Image or video-supported operations are safer and easier, and offer new possibilities in terms of both documentation and interaction.

However, monitoring an increasing number of systems and their complex signal and media distribution is not easy. VIEWMEDIC SMART OR does it for you, monitoring each system and transmitting all signals to an IP network. The staff conducting the OR purposefully control videos, images and data using a simple command centre.

VIEWMEDIC SMART OR manages all OR video sources, displays them on a variety of output devices and provides network-wide access to the images. SMART OR can even archive video streams, or connect with HIS, RIS and PACS.

Basicsystem

SMART OR BASIC SYSTEMS

An OR solution that adapts

SMART OR is practically scalable at will, and is thus compatible with a variety of integration scenarios. All SMART OR solutions work with the same basic software and user interface. This allows users to adjust quickly without extensive retraining, even after changes or expansions to the SMART OR system. There are three basic systems designed to meet individual needs:

ROUTE

ROUTE

SMART OR ROUTE is a single PC solution that allows you to send video signals from different sources (crossbar, scaler, ceiling, room and OR cameras etc.) for display on different devices (monitors, projectors). ROUTE is perfect for situations which do not require a network connection or distribution option.

LOCAL SUITE

LOCAL SUITE

The SMART OR LOCAL SUITEoffers a convenient introduction to professional digital documentation. Up to four users (SMART OR CLIENTS) can use the network to access available media streams from the OR, and even record them locally.It goes without saying that the LOCAL SUITE also provides all ROUTE capabilities.

NETWORK SUITE

NETWORK SUITE

The SMART OR NETWORK SUITE can handle complex integration scenarios including multiple ORs. As many SMART OR CLIENTS as desired can access and share available OR streams. Media content archived on the central network can also be opened and managed using a CLIENT. The NETWORK SUITE’s media archive can be transferred to specialised servers, to better prepare and protect yourorganisation’s data. The NETWORK SUITE also includes all ROUTE capabilities.

“A modular system solution that can be upgraded or expanded at any time – perfect for every requirement.”

Videorouting

INTELLIGENT VIDEO ROUTING

ROUTE

VIEWMEDIC SMART OR’s video routing allows you to centrally direct the images collected from the OR. You can use it to determine which signal will be sent to which monitor, and who can access which live stream.

NETWORK SUITE

NETWORK SUITE

NETWORK SUITE has an integrated authorisation system, which allows the attending doctor to define who may see which live stream via their CLIENT. Up to 16 video streams can be shown simultaneously in HD quality on a single monitor. The ‘On-Air’ display provides the attending doctor with a simple tool for determining if anyone outside the OR is currently accessing the local video signal.

Including clinic-wide streaming

The number of image-producing devices used in modern ORs is steadily growing. SMART OR makes managing this information easy with clear and concise imaging. A few simple taps on the touch-screen are enough to determine which image will be displayed on which monitor.

Presets allows you to save screen and configuration layouts permanently, so that you can access them at any time. You can save presets specific to a room, an operation or a doctor.

SMART OR offers integrated controls to manage your AV devices, such as crossbars, scalers and converters. In addition, the intuitive user interface grants you direct access to ceiling and room cameras, as well as OR cameras. You can also control swivel functions for any connected PTZ cameras directly using the SMART OR touch panel.

The hardware encoder provides network access to images, streams and information. The streams are thus available, with minimal latency, on all SMART OR CLIENTS.

Videomanagement

CENTRAL VIDEO MANAGEMENT

Stream

VIEWMEDIC SMART OR CLIENT grants access to the live streams created in the OR, and also to archived data saved on the central server. In addition, each CLIENT can start recording streams and export recordings and reports to DVD or USB media.

In areas that require maximum availability and security – mainly operating rooms – the SMART OR CLIENT can be expanded to include a ‘FAIL OVER FUNCTION.’ This expansion ensures that all essential CLIENT output remains available even if the network or the server are down.

Access your data at any time, with a SMART OR CLIENT

SMART OR CLIENTS are the user interface designed to work with the SMART OR system. The CLIENTS use the network to access central video management functions. Every CLIENT user can access and display prepared live images or archive material via the touch screen. So, for example, the chief physician can observe the OR without actually being in the room.

The CLIENTS also have access to an integrated recording function: CLIENT users can thus record and archive video streams. Live recordings can be accessed and replayed at any time. The CLIENT is a great tool for writing reports quickly and efficiently when used in connection with our optional plug-ins HL7 CONNECT and DICOM CONNECT (pages 8 and 9), which allow you to access all patient information. You can then print the report, or burn it to a DVD along with any relevant image and video files.

Encoder

QUALITY WITH H.264 ENCODE

ENCODE

The VIEWMEDIC SMART OR hardware encoder reduces the incoming video streams to a fraction of their original size. The streams it creates are then available instantly via the network.

SMART OR HARDWARE - ENCODER

The hardware video encoder automatically reduces incoming image and video files from image-producing devices to a fraction of their original file size. It als converts the image data to a MPEG4/H.264 live stream with full HD quality.

The encoder is so efficient that it is able to reduce the file to around 3 per cent of its original size. For example, an uncompressed data stream at 700 Gbytes can be reduced to just 20 Gbytes after the hardware encoding process.

Hardware Encoder

Another advantage of the system: Compressed video streams are available milliseconds after compression, and can be opened in real time. This means that not only can the chief physician watch the operation ‘live’ from his office, it could also be transmitted for an audience sitting in an associated lecture hall, who are thus able to experience the operation as though they were there.

With NETWORK SUITE, the number of hardware encoders able to stream video and audio data into the network is almost unlimited. This modular construction means that all available video streams can be opened by all CLIENTS in real time and watched simultaneously.

Kompressionsbenchmark

The hardware encoder can also save high quality, individual images from a video, which can then be used, for example, in a report or during a patient consultation. In addition, the encoder also has an audio input, and is thus able to record audio signals such as those from a microphone. The signals are then compressed with the live images.

Archiving

SMART ARCHIVING

Archive

The VIEWMEDIC SMART OR NVR archives live images from the OR together with a patient’s vital signs, and stores them on a central server. The recordings can then be accessed by any connected CLIENT at any time.

SMART OR NVR records live images in HD quality

The SMART OR NVR (Network Video Recorder) is responsible for archiving, replaying and exporting audio and video streams. Optionally, it can also archive audio data (commentary and so on).

The quality of the recording is determined by the SMART OR integrated encoder. The advantage: You can select the rate of video compression, from highly compressed to lossless compression, and you can change these settings at any time. Resources and network performance are optimised thanks to the distinct separation of tasks between network management (SMART OR NETWORK), hardware video encoder and recording (SMART OR NVR).

 

NET VIDEO RECORDER

Any SMART OR CLIENT can access the data archived in the NVR. Data can then be used, for example, for patient consultations, integrated into reports and diagnostic findings or saved to an external media source (USB or CD/DVD). You can also replay the recording in a lecture hall with access to the network. Here, too, you can display and combine several different video streams.

Depending on server capacity, and the demands on the network, the server component SMART OR NETWORK and NVR can be stored on a single server, or on two different servers. Virtualisation, for example using VMware, is also an option.

DICOM

RIS & PACS WITH DICOM CONNECT

Archive

All your ORs and CLIENTS have access to PACS and RIS data via the VIEWMEDIC SMART OR plug-in DICOM CONNECT. The plug-in integrates patient information and worklists, and also transfers any images and videos taken during a procedure to PACS.

SMART OR DICOM CONNECT

VIEWMEDIC SMART OR DICOM Box

SMART OR DICOM CONNECT connects your SMART OR SUITE to the DICOM world. The DICOM CONNECT interface can be adapted to meet individual and manufacturerspecific data demands. SMART OR transfers video and image data from the OR as modalities to the PACS or RIS network.

The DICOM CONNECT expansion allows SMART OR to accept DICOM worklists. SMART OR then filters all procedures for the modalities in question, and presents them, including patient information, for further processing.

If the image data is included in the modality, then you need only follow a few simple steps to transfer it to the PACS or RIS system. In doing so, you keep the material securely linked to the relevant procedure and patient information. SMART OR system’s intuitive, simple controls ensure that your data is always linked correctly.

The DICOM CONNECT plug-in can even archive video and image contents in HIS, RIS or PACS. The plug-in is based on the latest DICOM format (Supplement 149), and is thus prepared for future expansions.

HL7

PERFECT CONNECTION TO HIS

Archive

Exchanging patient information is easy with HL7. Simply use the VIEWMEDIC SMART OR plug-in, HL7 CONNECT, to link multimedia content, such as images and videos, to patient information in the HIS.

 

SMART OR HL7 CONNECT

SMART OR HL7 CONNECT connects SMART OR with your Hospital Information System (HIS). ‘Health Level Seven’ (or HL7) fosters communication and cooperation – not just between medical institutions, but also between the administration, the attending doctors and all other responsible parties within the hospital.

HL7 allows you to create administrative documents and tasks within the hospital, and share them between different departments.

The HL7 CONNECT plug-in grants all CLIENTS access to data relevant to the video recording. Images or videos created with SMART OR, in return, are easy to connect with your HIS.

The HL7 CONNECT plug-in expedites and simplifies integration of administrative and patient information, a task that would otherwise occupy significant time and resources. SMART OR takes manufacturer-specific installation and local anomalies into account during this process.
