NDSsi launches ConnectOR G2 platform for integrating surgical imaging

12 August 2010

NDS Surgical Imaging (NDSsi) has launched ConnectOR G2, its new surgical visualization and informatics platform.

 Based on the NDSsi technology vision of Medical Visualization Informatics (MVI), ConnectOR G2 medical-grade products offer the unique ability to connect PACS imaging, surgical video and medical informatics.

A customizable informatics appliance designed specifically for placement on a cart or boom, ConnectOR G2 offers user-selective multi-display support, HD image routing and HD surgical video streaming over Ethernet or Internet. The device — housed in one compact enclosure — can serve as the visualization informatics backbone for operating theatres and minimally-invasive surgery environments, enhancing clinical workflow and improving overall efficiency.

The ConnectOR G2 platform supports up to ten multiple-format video inputs from a wide array of medical devices and signal types, which can then be routed to three independently switched multi-modality outputs. Examples include viewing live ultrasound alongside HD endoscopy, displaying hi-resolution PACS images from pre-surgical planning alongside HD surgical video, and hi-resolution pathology images alongside HD endoscopy—all on different monitors within the surgical environment.

“With ConnectOR G2, multiple video sources can now be routed instantly to the surgeon’s field of view,” said Jens Ruppert, Vice President & General Manager, Surgical Business Unit at NDSsi. “This technology is an unprecedented leap forward in real-time delivery of critical patient data to all surgical team members. The immediacy of multi-image access, more image content, with cutting-edge HD clarity, is revolutionizing the modern OR.”

The ConnectOR G2 can be used together with NDSsi’s ZeroWire wireless transceivers and Radiance medical monitors for a complete end-to-end surgical visualization system, allowing the easy and fast integration.
