November 11, 2016 — Barco recently announced that Nexxis, its IP-based OR imaging management platform, is now operating in over 1,000 operating rooms worldwide.

Nexxis is designed for integration into the digital OR and allows healthcare professionals to seamlessly connect, route and share high-resolution (4K) medical imaging and audio in and between operating rooms — an important asset in enhancing operational efficiency, team collaboration and surgical precision. After its initial rollout in Europe, the solution is gaining popularity in the North America and Asia Pacific markets as well.

Nexxis’ IP-centric approach ensures high-quality imaging and smooth distribution of uncompressed medical video, graphics, audio and computer data throughout the OR, with near-zero latency. In this way, Nexxis meets the imaging needs of today’s increasingly complex operating environments.

“Because of its uncompromised image quality, ease of use, scalability and reliability, Nexxis offers a future-proof solution for video distribution inside and outside the OR,” said Robert Elfrink, medical physicist at the Elkerliek hospital, Helmond, the Netherlands. “Now, our OR healthcare staff can fully concentrate on patient care without having to worry about technical issues.”

Peter Müller, M.D., senior physician trauma surgery at the Augsburg Hospital, Augsburg, Germany, explained how Nexxis contributes to the economic viability of the hospital: “Purchasing an imaging modality for each OR would be both too expensive as well as ineffective. Nexxis, however, allows us to share the devices and use signal sources between ORs.”
