Grâce à une technologie plus précise de l’imagerie, il est possible de diagnostiquer une maladie, de sauver des vies et d’améliorer les thérapies. La médecine moderne dépend de l’imagerie numérique pour établir des diagnostics ou superviser en temps réel les interventions chirurgicales.
Various imaging systems such as endoscopes, microscopes, X-ray devices, CTs, MRIs or operating room monitoring cameras are used in medical applications. The video sources are based on different interfaces, resolutions, video standards, control options, etc. A major challenge is to install all these video sources in the clinical environment, provide the most diverse cable concepts, operate the cameras, transport, display, document and archive image and video data or, for example, to make the data visible for remote diagnosis.
This was exactly the focus for STEMMER IMAGING's newly developed concepts and products such as, the »Medical Video Server«, making it possible to record, manage and display any common video source and to distribute the data via LAN/WAN. Whether SD or HD, analogue or digital – we have the right solutions for you.
Another example are our FGI modules: small, modular GigE interfaces for transporting different video source data to a Gigabit Ethernet network. Currently, we already supply modules for Sony auto-focus integrated zoom cameras which are frequently used in surgical light cameras and operating theatre monitoring cameras, for example. This interface not only provides image transfer but also integrates complete camera control and power supply. Thus, no complex cabling with many different special cables is required: one single network cable will be sufficient. Control and visualization are also done via the network.
The modular conception of the FGI modules allows for easy adaptation to other image sources and for functional extension, such as image data compression for HD video streaming via network.
