Barco is making available its “end-to-end” 4K video package designed for operating room use. The system includes the firm’s Nexxis “OR-over-IP” networking capabilities that stream live uncompressed 4K video, as well as two 4K monitors as displays. The MDSC-8232 is a 32″ 4K monitor intended for laparoscopic visualization, as well as for use within the interventional radiology control room, while the MDSC-8258 is a 58″ 4K monitor able to bring together a variety of data sources to display on one screen. The result is ultra high definition images that are displayed in real time both within the OR and outside of it.
The MDSC-8232 is available with a built-in Nexxis video decoder, while a separate decoder can be used as well. The system has already been tested successfully during actual procedures and is now being made available for wider use.
