– Onboards new partners across India, Thailand, Taiwan, Philippines, Vietnam, Australia
– Partnerships to leverage Barco’s leadership across Video-over-IP platform, Nexxis™ and Surgical Displays
– Unique technology platform specifically designed for integration into digital OR
The partners include SigmaJones AV in India, Heytech in Thailand, GET Medical in Taiwan, MedEqual in Philippines, Cetech in Vietnam and Rutledge AV, A Diversified Company in Australia. With these partnerships, Barco aims to expand its presence in the surgical sector across the APAC region and deliver cutting-edge surgical displays to digital operating rooms thereby increasing awareness for the solutions available to facilitate better and efficient healthcare.
Elaborating on the partnership, Rachel Coxon, Vice President of Healthcare APAC, Barco said, “We at Barco believe that efficient and future-ready healthcare should be accessible across as many avenues as possible and these partnerships bear testament to that. Nexxis™ can dramatically improve the scope and efficiency of an operating room and allows OR staff to concentrate on patient care instead of dealing with technical issues. We are looking forward to our partners taking the product to ORs across their regions. The solution avoids latency and artefacts, allows remote collaboration and efficient workflow while leaving room for organisational preferences.”
She further added “Patient safety and uptime is utmost priority in an operating room. Changing between surgical procedures and preferences requires trained personnel and proven technology. That’s where Nexxis HD and 4K video integration with perfect color reproduction provides surgeons with best-in-class image quality, near-zero latency, right depth and color perception to enable safe and efficient procedures.”
To ensure that the solution is efficiently integrated into the healthcare system of its beneficiaries, the partners underwent intensive training this week in Singapore and Melbourne. Commenting on the sessions, Pieter Peene, Program Manager, Nexxis™, Barco said, “When it concerns a solution as technologically advanced and diverse as Nexxis™, undergoing training further equips our partners with product segmentation, technical troubleshooting, service and other technical aspects. We are pleased to announce that all the partners took an active part in the sessions and gained adept knowledge of the solution. We look forward to the efficient adoption of the solution in the operating rooms across the partner countries.”
Nexxis™ provides a frame rate of 60Hz to present fluid video from HD up to 4K/UHD. The high quality and accuracy of the images help reduce eye fatigue during long surgical procedures. The solution uses the best available color reproduction methods like 4:4:4 chroma and has automatic color gamut selection to match the camera source and configure the display.
