January 6, 2014 — Barco, a visualization technology company, and Brainlab AG, Germany-based medical software technology manufacturer and marketer, announced their collaboration to provide medical content distribution and sharing. Buzz, a digital operating room (OR) by Brainlab, together with Barco’s Nexxis, an IP-centric solution for image and audio management, will provide integration with improved workflow efficiency for better patient care.
 
Brainlab launched Buzz in 2012. Buzz is a centralized information and control hub for the OR that enables easy access to medical image data from hospital information systems (HIS), picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and data enrichment with clinical indication-specific applications. Buzz also provides connectivity with a multitude of video signals and allows surgeons and the surgical team to intuitively route, stream and record audio, image and video content. Under the agreement, Brainlab and Barco will combine Buzz with Nexxis for controlled image distribution. The result is a setup designed to meet the demanding needs of content distribution in ORs.
 
Flexible, Scalable and Open 
Barco’s Nexxis imaging and audio management solution — comprising encoders, decoders and management software — builds on a scalable IP platform, which allows smooth distribution of medical imaging with near-zero latency. 
 
“Nexxis will provide Brainlab users with uncompressed real-time video, audio and advanced image routing capabilities in the OR,” said Rainer Birkenbach, executive vice president, Brainlab. “Because it seamlessly integrates with Buzz digital OR by Brainlab, doctors and patients benefit from enhanced data and information [guidance] that is easily viewed, shared and used for collaboration."
 
System Integrators 
While Brainlab focuses on transforming data to clinically relevant information and usability, the systems integrators are able to offer complex and customized systems and setups; they will integrate Barco’s Nexxis solution for image and audio management and distribution into Brainlab’s Buzz.
