ESSENCE – Integrated OR Solutions
AVI-SPL recently announced its latest innovation in surgical video platforms: ESSENCE (Enterprise Surgical Suite with Enhanced Network Control over Ethernet), is a suite of surgical video products that allows staff to control video, audio and data in the OR and lets practitioners remotely collaborate with surgeons.
The ESSENCE line includes three integrated operating rooms systems:
- ESSENCE-Digital: the DVI-D video platform
- ESSENCE-HD: scales all sources in the OR to a high definition 1080p format
- ESSENCE-IP: encodes images up to 4K into an Internet protocol format at the source and distributed at their native resolution without compression for artifact-free video
The ESSENCE video transport platform is an FDA-rated, Class 1 Medical Device that is not only agnostic to medical device manufacturers but also able to support legacy, current and future surgical technology because of its easily scalable design. It combines best practices with an open architecture allowing a variety of devices from different manufacturers, modalities and technologies to work together in one cohesive system.
As with all ESSENCE video platforms, the system is also designed to dramatically reduce the footprint normally associated with traditional AV equipment in the limited space of most ORs.
AVI-SPL’s Medical Team exhibited ESSENCE at the OR Manager Conference September 23-25 in National Harbor, Ma. To learn more about AVI-SPL’s healthcare solutions, visit AVI-SPL’s Healthcare page.
