Optivision supplies MPEG video products to Olympus

The German division of Japanese firm Olympus Optical has selected streaming MPEG video products from Palo Alto, CA-based Optivision for use in a next-generation, network-centric medical imaging application. Olympus’ Germany Video Systems Integration (VSI) initiative is intended to provide widespread user access to live and archived medical images within hospitals and to remote medical service providers. The VSI project will also provide telemedicine, teleconferencing, and training capabilities using intranet-, LAN-, and WAN-based technologies. The VSI system comprises an analog video-switching network integrated with a hospital’s IP-based computer network and is linked with Olympus endoscopic and medical imaging devices in various exam and treatment rooms.
