Hitachi delivers HD cameras to medical center

The OLC Education and Conference Center, a meeting and training facility in Rosemont, IL, recently purchased two Hitachi SK-3020P HDTV studio cameras and one DK-H32 HDTV robotic remote box. The cameras were sold through Hitachi dealer ROSCOR, based in Mount Prospect, IL.

Formerly known as Orthopaedic Learning Center (OLC), the facility hosts doctors who convene to observe prominent surgeons perform open and arthroscopically assisted orthopedic surgery demonstrations and other advanced surgical procedures.

During these surgical demonstrations in OLC’s HD studio, the Hitachi DK-H32 is positioned on a 10ft jib arm that extends directly above the operating table enabling viewers to see over the surgeon’s shoulder at the work he or she is performing, while keeping close-ups in focus. The two SK-3020P HDTV studio cameras dolly around the operating table to capture the entire presentation and surgical procedure.

The 1080i presentations can be viewed on large HD LCD displays in OLC’s Bioskills Lab, lecture rooms and classrooms. OLC can also conduct real-time, two-way video conferences with other facilities worldwide, as well as broadcast via satellite or Internet to global audiences.

Video signals from the Hitachi cameras, as well as fluoroscopes, X-rays, remote video cameras and other imaging devices, are electronically routed with a QuStream HD router, switched on a Ross Synergy 1.5 ME HD video switcher, and recorded in multiple formats including: 1080i, DVCProHD, JPEG2000, SDI, DVCAM, and MPEG-2 and MPEG-4.
