AVI-SPL Introduces New Operating Room Solution ESSENCE

September 24, 2013 | Telepresence Options


Suite of solutions to be showcased at OR Manager Conference September 23-25

TAMPA, Fla., - September 23, 2013 - AVI-SPL, the world's leading video communications partner, is pleased to announce its latest innovation in surgical video platforms. ESSENCE (Enterprise Surgical System with Enhanced Network Control over Ethernet) is an AVI-SPL family of surgical video products designed around clinical workflows that enables the OR staff to efficiently manage all surgical video, audio and data while allowing medical practitioners outside the OR to observe and collaborate with the surgeon and staff.

A unique combination of both hardware and software solutions, ESSENCE not only provides remote source selection of the OR's medical video but also offers a unified approach to image capture, video recording, archiving, professional editing, video on demand as well as posting images to both system EHR and PACS.�� More than just video streaming; ESSENCE offers two-way connectivity that can link an OR with other clinical specialties for collaborative examination of tissue specimens, provide interactive instruction during live surgical or broadcast new techniques and innovative procedures across the country or the globe.

"ESSENCE is the culmination of a decade of AVI-SPL pioneering Integrated Operating Rooms," said Tony McClain, vice president of AVI-SPL Medical. "ESSENCE allows clinicians to collaborate faster and easier than ever before to improve patient outcomes, which is the ultimate goal."

The Essence line includes three integrated operating rooms systems to choose from; the DVI-D video platform ESSENCE-Digital, the ESSENCE-HD which scales all sources in the OR to a high definition 1080p format and the ESSENCE-IP where images up to 4K are encoded into an internet protocol format at the source and distributed at their native resolution without compression for artifact-free video.�

The ESSENCE video transport platform is an FDA rated, Class 1 Medical Device that is not only agnostic to medical device manufacturers but also able to support legacy, current and future surgical technology because of its easily scalable design.� It combines best practices with an open architecture allowing a variety of devices from different manufactures, modalities and technologies to work together in one cohesive system.� As with all ESSENCE video platforms the system is also designed to dramatically reduce the footprint normally associated with traditional AV equipment in the limited space of most ORs.

AVI-SPL's Medical Team will exhibit at the OR Manager Conference September 23-25 at the Gaylord National Resort in National Harbor, Maryland. Visit booth #234 to learn more about ESSENCE and AVI-SPL's complete portfolio of medical solutions.
