At IVS, we’ve listened to the feedback of our clinical education customers and developed a new tool that addresses the challenge of simulation video observation, recording, and debriefing: VALT.
The VALT solution is an incredibly simple but powerful tool that can be learned in minutes. Basic observation and recording tasks are often picked up intuitively without the need for any extensive training or technical support. Our interface minimizes 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, however. 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. 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.

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.
VALT costs up to 50% less than other AV simulation solutions and ongoing maintenance costs are typically 90% less than other systems. VALT eliminates client software or per user/workstation license costs.
Track every view and share of the videos with a robust user permissions structure and audit trail. Share hardware between different departments and programs while keeping live sessions and video assets securely separate.
VALT is there when you need it for critical educational tasks. It is one of the most advanced and reliable video recording applications available, featuring robust enterprise components built on top of a hardened Linux operating system and a proven application stack to minimize points of failure.
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.
Customize VALT so you only see the features and functions you need to use.
The VALT system can capture content being displayed on virtually any screen (vital sign monitors, software screens, mobile device data) and synchronize it seamlessly with HD video cameras arranged to match different or changing room configurations or scenarios. The recordings can even be triggered from the rooms with student ID cards or scheduled in advance to make high volume OSCE prep rounds a breeze. VALT also allows supervisors to observe and “talkback” into simulation rooms from any authorized computer.
Group multiple cameras or encoders together into a single room. Grouped cameras start recording together and are enabled for synchronized playback.
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.
VALT integrates seamlessly with third-party HDMI encoding hardware, allowing users to capture laptop/PC content such as vital monitors or PowerPoint presentations and automatically pair and synchronize it with video cameras.
Users can schedule recordings in advance, including on a recurring basis – daily, weekly, or monthly – allowing for complete automation of the recording process. Point-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras can be automatically repositioned to an area of interest at the beginning of any scheduled recording(s).
We’ve also enabled our clients to literally take video recording into their own hands with Beam, our add-on iOS application that can turn any Apple device into a truly mobile AV capture point. Beam can record simulations in the field or provide unique in situ perspectives. Integrating seamlessly with VALT, Beam provides the same powerful security, data capture, and sharing features while still being easy to manage.
Easily capture and stream video content from any iOS device.
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.
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.
