Control HD pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras through our software interface using a mouse. The VALT software can also create or jump to predefined positions “presets” when our system is paired with PTZ enabled cameras.
Group multiple cameras or encoders together into a single room. Grouped cameras start recording together and playback in a synchronized fashion together.
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.
With comprehensive user management rights, a detailed audit log and optional encryption our video solution offers some of the most advanced security features in the market. These built-in features can help maintain your clinics’ compliance standards (HIPAA/HITECH).
Using digital video for operating room training helps learners of every level integrate the full clinical learning experience. Using video for recording and observation allows for a more detailed clinical skills assessment, allows instructors to highlight any part of a clinical simulation during the debrief, and permits institutions to build a digital video library of clinical simulations for future viewing.
The VALT (Video Audio Learning Tool) solution from IVS is a user-friendly and inexpensive clinical simulation management application. The VALT system can be used to live-stream or record video from any simulation room, even remotely. VALT uses far less hardware than most systems. Instead, all video content is sent to a central server, removing the need for recording equipment to be placed in each room. The VALT video solution for operating room simulations is easily scaled up from small, one-room installations to multiple-room installs supporting dozens of cameras.
VALT uses both fixed and movable PTZ high-definition IP cameras. Multiple cameras can be placed in each room to provide different viewing angles. Our top-end cameras are paired with auto-gain microphones that remove most background noise and eliminate hum altogether. Combined they provide unparalleled video quality.
Our typical install for recording operating room clinical simulations contains storage space for around 16,000 hours of video, although more storage can be added if needed. Video is recorded in standard .mp4 format and can be viewed by any authorized person using nothing more than a common internet browser, such as Chrome, Safari, or Firefox — no special viewing equipment is required.
A remote viewer can start and stop any recording session, or a special button placed in the simulation room can be used for the same purpose. All video content is immediately available on the network, with no delays due to video rendering or formatting.
VALT software is extremely powerful, yet easy to use. Administrators can annotate individual video segments with notes, alter settings that determine how long video is stored on the central server, and determine which persons have access. Each clinical skills recording is also tagged with metadata, making it easy to locate and access individual sessions from the video library.
With VALT, it is easy to record operating room clinical simulations off-site. The Beam mobile capture application allows you to set up off-site and record the simulation or training event with a tablet or smartphone. When you return to the main server, the video content syncs and uploads automatically.
IVS can provide a complete turnkey solution that can be implemented by any internal IT department or by a third-party integrator. We work closely with every customer to ensure a successful installation of the VALT digital video solution. Contact us at IVS to request a quote or to schedule a product demonstration.
