November 16, 2015 — NDS Surgical Imaging will preview its new patent-pending ZeroWire Mobile integrated cordless display solution at the MEDICA event in Dusseldorf, Germany.

The system, to be released in 2016, offers untethered mobility of high-definition (HD) imaging in a self-powered system. Utilizing a discreet embedded wireless transmitter/receiver built into the company’s Radiance Ultra surgical displays and mounted on a specially designed roll-stand, the ZeroWire Mobile solution delivers full HD video wirelessly with complete freedom of movement within the procedure room. A dual-battery power source is engineered with a wall-mounted two- or four-bay battery charging system providing hot-swap capability for extended operational requirements.

The display system eliminates cables, which represent a potential tripping hazard, and helps enable greater procedure room efficiency through ease of movement and re-positioning. In addition, by allowing quick movement from room to room, ZeroWire Mobile may help facilities reduce cleaning and turnaround time.

The NDS technology preview will also feature the addition of large format 32-inch displays to the Radiance Ultra family, to be released in 2016. These include the Radiance Ultra 4K 32-inch, offering superb image clarity at 4K resolution (3840x2160 pixels, Ultra-HD), with 4x 3G-SDI, display port and HDMI inputs. The Radiance Ultra TruColor 32-inch display features Ultra-Wide-Gamut technology, broadening the color spectrum for more life-like images, and NDS’s proprietary Medi-Match color calibration technology for smooth motion and accurate color representation of anatomy. The Radiance Ultra 32-inch HD and 27-inch HD monitors will also be showcased.

The Radiance Ultra family of displays features seamless, edge-to-edge glass for easy cleaning and a 10-year scratch-resistant glass guarantee. NDS will also highlight its newly upgraded EndoVue 21-inch monitor, a slim display specially designed for the value segment markets.

NDS’s suite of medical-grade video processing products simplify operating room (OR) integration and streamline image management. ConductOR is a configurable audio and video routing solution, enabling the routing of virtually any medical imaging source to the surgeon’s field of view and beyond. ScaleOR is a video converter/scaler solution designed specifically for the endoscopy environment; it easily connects equipment with incompatible signal input and output resolutions, and is ideal for upgrading clinical facilities to HD video. ExpandOR is the first medical-grade video IP streaming technology to allow secure bi-directional HD video/audio streaming to multiple destinations simultaneously, according to the company.

The ZeroWire G2 external wireless HD video transmission platform is compatible with NDS surgical displays, and utilizes an advanced point-to-point tracking system to keep the transmitter and receiver pair locked together, avoiding signal loss when units are moved and repositioned during a clinical procedure.
