Digital Imaging Capture Solution
AVerMedia Video Capture Solution for Medical Image Application
The Present day hospital has various medical imaging devices in its diagnostic and examination rooms, which provide the diagnostic data necessary for the effective treatment of the hospital’s patients. The data collected by these devices must be transmitted to a workstation for processing and analysis, and stored on the hospital’s servers. However, most of the devices output to non-standard imaging resolutions, requiring additional proprietary hardware for each device, adding considerably to the expense and complexity of the overall imaging system.
In order to reduce such expenses, the hospital normally requires an external video capture solution which could read all the video and images produced by the existing devices regardless of their resolution. A significant challenge in this situation is the fact that most medical imaging devices still use analog output. Non-standard analog signals are more complex to process than digital signals, and the unique timing of the signal must be taken into account. The hospital requires a solution that could accommodate any of the very specific timing parameters of the currently used devices both analog and digital, while also being compatible with any devices purchased in the future. This solution need to consist of a single device able to connect physically with all the hospital’s medical imaging equipment in order to capture SD, full HD, 3D video and images, and then transmit them at high speed to a workstation.
With AVerMedia deep experience in video processing, hardware and software integration, and product customization to present a single device solution to meet the hospital’s needs. The CU511B USB 3.0 video Capture Box can be installed in the hospital’s diagnostic rooms. Six different input interfaces (HDMI, DVI, VGA, S-video, Composite, and 3G-SDI) enable the CU511B to connect physically to every one of the hospital’s imaging devices. With 8-bit HD/SD video support, video resolution adjustment tool to modify the resolution (up to 1920 x 1200 @ 60 fps, with a video timing of up to 162 MHz), and a driver and SDK customization option by AVerMedia , the CU511B can successfully capture all the video and images output from each device regardless of their native resolutions and output formats.
Connecting each device directly to the CU511B enables the hospital’s imaging devices to be centralized, reducing system complexity and the system’s physical footprint. The CU511B connected with high speed USB 3.0 port of the diagnostic room’s medical workstation, where data from it could be stored, analyzed, and uploaded to the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) of each patient, which is stored on the hospital’s main servers.
Product Introduction (Option PCIe)- AVerMedia CD530
AVerMedia CD530 is a 1080p PCIe video capture card equipped with multiple video interfaces, which can be widely adopted by most medical devices. It is designed to provide the high signal adaptation allowing the complete customization of the captured resolution under 1920 x 1200, through AVerMedia Resolution Adjustment Tool. CD530 is featured by its connectivity to the signal interfaces of HDMI, DVI and VGA.
Most of the medical image equipments output non-standard image resolutions, requiring additional proprietary hardware for each device, adding considerably to the expense and complexity of the overall medical imaging system. In order to acquire video from any unique resolution, AVerMedia introduces software-based Resolution Adjustment Tool, which can dynamically generate resolution table to fit any video output sources from the medical image machines, supporting from 640×480 to 1920×1200@60p maximum. The tool allows the user to capture hundreds of different resolution, as they need.
AVerMedia also provides the developers with all essential tools to create powerful applications without additional cost for Microsoft® Windows and Linux based platforms. AVerMedia SDK is a feature-rich development toolkit, which offers the industrial customers a complete set of functional modules to flexibly and efficiently develop their vertical applications. AVerMedia specialized medical SDK solutions will help to reduce the development time and cost.
