OLC Education and Conference Center in Rosemont, IL, recently purchased two Hitachi SK-3020P HDTV studio cameras and one DK-H32 HDTV robotic remote box camera.

The facility hosts doctors from around the world 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 look over the surgeon’s shoulder at the work being performed, while keeping close-ups in focus.

The SK-3020P 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.

ROSCOR in Mount Prospect, IL, sold the cameras.
