Sony launches first 4K surgical recorder10 March 2016
Sony Professional Solutions Europe has launched a full 4K IP Solution, allowing hospitals to utilise the latest imaging technologies. The solution includes Sony’s new Medical 4K Recorder and Content Management System, which enable images to be viewed on-site, recorded, and managed over an Ethernet network using the recently announced 4K surgical monitors (55in LMD-X550MD and 31in LMD-X310MD).
The new HVO-4000MT Medical 4K Recorder is a 4K, 3D and 2D medical grade video recorder that’s intended to record 4K video and still images from endoscopic and laparoscopic camera systems, surgical microscopes and other compatible imaging systems.
Images captured with the HVO-4000MT can be used for patient records, training or educational purposes. The compact, portable recorder is suitable for use in hospital operating rooms, medical imaging centres, surgical centres, clinics, doctors’ offices and similar healthcare environments.
The HVO-4000MT is designed to comply with medical safety standards and is optimised for medical applications. This equipment can capture prolonged high-quality video from high-resolution cameras focused on the operating field. By connecting the recorder to a network, images can be uploaded and viewed by other medical personnel outside of the operating room as well.
The new CMDS-MS20MD Content Management System enables network-based searching and management of recorded 4K video data from medical 4K recorders and other recording devices. The new application efficiently streamlines the storage, management and archive of 4K /HD medical video and still image files.
It can manage video content created by medical recorders, as well as providing video editing functionality. Streamed video content can also be captured live directly from connected IP cameras and live encoders.
