NDS Surgical Imaging Introduces the First Medical-Grade Video Scaling Appliance Designed for the OR Suite
"ScaleOR is another example of how NDSsi listens to its customers and designs products to solve industry challenges and streamline OR efficiency," said Jens Ruppert, Vice President & General Manager, Surgical Business Unit at NDSsi. "Until now, OR staff had to work with numerous devices to deal with the signal complexities of video conversion and scaling. By using interchangeable modules, ScaleOR provides an easy-to-use universal solution, enabling multiple tasks from one compact device."
Available input modules for the ScaleOR product are DVI-D, 3G-SDI, VGA/RGB/SOG, and S-video/Composite. These modules are automatically detected by the base unit to identify the incoming signal type. The input video is then converted and scaled for up to three simultaneous output formats: 3G-SDI, DVI-D, and DVI over single fiber. The scaled output format is compatible with HD monitors and other HD equipment, and is selectable by the user via a dip-switch setting or on-screen-display menu.
The user also has control over advanced features such as RGB gain, brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, zoom, and scaling settings through the on-screen-display menu. With IEC/EN/UL/CSA 60601 approvals, ScaleOR meets the stringent electrical safety requirements of the surgical operating room and similarly restrictive locations.
