The VALT software integrates with the latest IP camera technology. Observe in real-time or review recorded high-definition video in 1080p resolution. Auto-gaining discrete microphones provide high-quality perfectly synchronized audio.
All of the videos are stored and managed by a built-in searchable database. Tag videos with data such as student name or session type for easy lookup and review.
A single software instance can support an unlimited number of cameras, users, and departments while keeping content segmented and secure.
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 compliance standards (HIPAA/HITECH).
Health sciences are applied sciences that investigate the use of technology, science, math, and engineering in healthcare delivery. Examples of health science disciplines include audiology, forensic medicine, geriatrics, nephrology, oncology, and pathology. Health science education is an integral part of the curriculum of medical students, and campuses are using technology such as digital video to create health science simulations to aid in the learning process. Simulations teach trainees to work through a large number of scenarios — both in the home environment or in healthcare settings.
IVS digital video is used to record health science simulations, providing students with accurate analysis and feedback on their methodology and skills. Recordings can be annotated with notes, video “markers”, and repeatedly reviewed, enabling instructors to effectively target the students’ behaviors.
Using multiple cameras enables multi-angle recording, and any number of health science simulation rooms can be simultaneously recorded. Recordings are categorized into a digital video library of simulated learning experiences, instantly viewable by any authorized user.
IVS VALT is an affordable recording solution for recording health science simulations. The VALT (Video Audio Learning Tool) system uses a central server to store all video content, eliminating the need for in-room recording equipment. Our lightweight IP cameras are paired with high-quality auto-gaining microphones that eliminate both hum and any background noise. Place multiple cameras in any given room to obtain a wide-array of recording angles.
Our pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras may be adjusted to record any angle and can be both fixed or moveable. Video can be started and stopped instantly from within the room, or by a remote observer who is viewing the recording in real-time. The real-time viewing feature also allows instructors to chat with students during the health simulation via the “talkback” feature. “Talkback” allows live instructor communication during the simulation without physically interrupting the session.
Our video for healthcare labs and focus groups is rendered in standard .MP4 format and uses h.264 compression, minimizing demands on the network. No lag time means that your recorded video is immediately available for viewing.
Viewers only require a simple internet browser to review recorded health science simulations. A typical VALT installation has storage space for nearly 20,000 hours of high-definition video, and if needed additional storage is available. Our health science recording software affixes each video segment with metadata, making it easy to look up locate and organize video sessions.
Need to record an applied science simulation away from campus? Our new Beam mobile capture app makes it easy. Beam turns a smartphone or tablet into a mobile video studio allowing instructors to capture video of health science labs at any location. Video recorded with Beam automatically syncs with the main VALT server on campus, seamlessly adding your recorded simulation sessions into the video library.
If your department is interested in using digital video to capture health science simulations and labs, IVS can provide a complete turnkey solution that can be implemented by any internal IT department or by a third-party integrator. IVS works closely with every customer to guarantee a successful installation of the VALT digital video system. Contact us at IVS to schedule a product demonstration or to request a quote.
