Valt for Simulation

Here at IVS we’ve approached the simulation video observation, recording and debriefing challenge from a different perspective. We’re a video company that truly listens to our clinical education customers.  We’ve taken their feedback and developed a new tool to address an old challenge.

At it’s core the VALT solution is an incredibly simple but powerful tool.  The interface can be learned in minutes and the basic observation and recording tasks are often picked up intuitively without any extensive training or tech support.  We aim to minimize complexity and points of failure so that your recording system is always there when you need it for critical educational tasks.

That simplicity does not come at the cost of enterprise level features though. With VALT you can scale to any number of cameras and users all while incurring no per client, confusing ‘pay per feature’ license structures or budget crushing annual maintenance contracts.  We have built in critical data security measures and integrate into your existing user management and authentication systems to efficiently manage multiple departments, programs and ever changing groups of users.

Easy

Learn to use Valt within minutes. Basic observation and recording tasks can be done intuitively without extensive training or tech support. The interface is easy to use, with a browser-based system for simplified deployment.

Affordable

Valt costs up to 50% less than other AV simulation solutions, and ongoing maintenance costs are typically 90% less than other systems. It also eliminates client software or per user/workstation license costs.

Secure

The robust user permission structure and audit trail mean you can track every view and share of the video. Plus, different departments and programs can share hardware while keeping live sessions and video assets securely separate.

Reliable

Valt is there when you need it for critical educational tasks. It features robust enterprise components to minimize points of failure, ensuring you get one of the most advanced and reliable systems available. 

Scalable

Use Valt with one camera or hundreds of cameras. Valt can handle unlimited users and programs. Put it to work in one department or throughout your entire system, while managing costs and simplifying support and maintenance. 

Flexible

Customize it so you see only the features and functions you need to use.

Integration & Features

The VALT system can capture content being displayed on virtually any screen (vital sign monitors, software screen, mobile device data) and synchronize it seamlessly with HD video cameras arranged in many different configurations to match changing room configuration or scenarios.  To make high volume OSCE prep rounds a breeze, the recordings can even be triggered from the rooms with student id cards or scheduled in advance.  VALT also allows supervisors to observe & talk back into simulation rooms from any authorized computer.

Camera Grouping

Group multiple cameras or encoders together into a single room.  Grouped cameras start recording together and playback in a synchronized fashion together.

Button & LED

Start and stop recording with the push of a button or the swipe of a RFID card reader.  The system also integrates LEDs providing a visual indicator as to when a recording is active.

HDMI Encoder

The software integrates seamlessly with 3rd party HDMI encoding hardware.  Allowing users to capture Laptop / PC content such as PowerPoint’s and Vital Monitors and automatically pair and synchronize it with video cameras.

Scheduler

This allows users to schedule recordings in advance.  The schedule can be set to automatically recur on a daily, weekly or monthly basis allowing for complete automation of the recording process. The scheduler also integrates with PTZ cameras to automatically reposition the camera to the area of interest at the beginning of the scheduled recording(s).

Beam for Mobile Simulations

We’ve also enabled our clients to literally take video recording into their own hands with our BEAM application.  This iOS app can turn an Apple device into a truly mobile AV capture point that can provide unique in-situ perspectives or record simulations out in the field.  The same powerful security, data capture and sharing features come along to ensure the video is still easy to manage and secure.

 

Capture Content Anywhere

Easily capture and stream video content from any iOS device.

HD Video Capture

Record in resolutions up to 1080P using either the front or rear camera.

Upload

The Beam application can be set to upload captured videos either automatically or on-demand.

Ease of Use

The mobile capture application is easy to deploy and use.  The video management and sharing can be completely automated using our back end Valt application.
