Recording Solution for Clinical Skills Training

Clinical skills training is an essential part of many clinical educational programs, and IVS is a market leader when it comes to audio video capture and observation for this application. VALT (Video Audio Learning Tool) helps increase patient satisfaction through the optimization of staff resources and by accelerating the care provided by student clinicians. Students learn at a faster rate as instructors are able to provide better coaching and analysis of the work and are able to view “best use” examples from the video library. Student progress is validated and documented via the video library which allows for staff members to share progress and gain insight from fellow staff members quickly and easily. The IVS solution incorporates the latest technologies in video observation and capture, making it attractive to students who are seeking out programs that have access to the best technology.

Staff members are able to do more with less with the ability to observe live sessions and video recordings from their desktop or laptop computer. Since sessions can be viewed from any location on the network, observation rooms may be converted into additional therapy rooms. The VALT solution brings everything to the network providing a flexible solution with less hardware and fewer physical connections which can lower acquisition and support costs.

HD Camera Support

Our software integrates with the full line of Axis IP cameras. We can capture and stream HD content at resolutions beyond 1080p. 

Multi View

Quickly change views from single camera to 2×2 to 3×3. Users are able to observe up to nine rooms simultaneously.   


Built on top of a hardened Linux server operating system and a proven application stack, the VALT software is one of the most reliable video recording applications on the market.

Browser Interface

Easy to use intuitive browser-based software interface works on PC or mobile devices. This simplifies deployment and allows users to debrief and observe videos from any authorized device.

LDAP Integration

Automatically import LDAP users into the system and assign them to the proper VALT user group. This allows users to use their same network login information to access our system while completely automating the user management process.


Enterprise class video engine can support up to 500 concurrent remote connections. Multiple users watching live or recorded video will not cause any performance issues for our systems.

Integration & Features

At its 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 technical 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.

Deployment is also a breeze, VALT utilizes a browser-based client so no software or plug-ins are required. And this simplicity does not come at the cost of enterprise-level features. Our user management and security/permission structure make it simple to keep video segmented by departments or ensure sensitive patient data is secured. With VALT you can scale to any number of cameras and users all while incurring no per client license structures or budget-crushing annual maintenance contracts. 

Camera Grouping

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


This feature allows faculty to “talkback” into any room to provide feedback or coaching to the student clinician. This is often transmitted into a wireless earpiece so only the clinician in the room can hear the feedback.


Tag specific points within a recording either during live observation or during the review process. These points can have searchable descriptions associated with them. These “markers” allow users to easily jump right to that point in the video similar to chapters in a DVD.

MP4 File Format

Our system records in a standard MP4 file format. Videos are ready to be exported as soon as you press stop and no additional rendering or re-encoding time is required. Videos can easily be shared with other individuals without the need for proprietary players.

Beam for Mobile Recording

In clinical skills applications mobile recording is often a requirement. IVS developed Beam for two specific customer applications. One common requirement that we hear is to be able to record videos in the field at off-site locations or out in the community, keeping them secure until they are uploaded to the main system. Another is the ability to have mobile “live” cameras on premise that can be taken to rooms or locations where there are no cameras permanently installed. Beam addresses both of these applications with ease.

Beam turns any iPad or iPhone into a secure mobile recording platform. Users are able to easily launch and describe recordings in the field. The Beam iOS application integrates seamlessly with VALT, automating the management process for any videos recorded using Beam.

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.


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.
