NAI Technology Products showcased its MDR Video and its MDR Xpress at the 2008 Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) meeting Seattle.
MDR Video provides video recording to DVD with image quality and output which is equal to that of the original exam data. Each DVD (or CD) is recorded in a DICOM format from a high-resolution video source. Full resolution RGB, VGA and monochrome video sources up to 2048 x 2048 matrix and 160 Mhz pixel clock frequency are recorded in full motion.
Robert Neary, director, strategic business development, told Health Imaging News that MDR Video integrates with existing modality exposure controls for automatic, simultaneous image capture, of still images and cine loops at the touch of a button. Users can also use MDR's convenient hand or footswitch capture options.
MDR Xpress—the company’s DICOM server product—does not have the video conversion capability but takes images from DICOM modality and burns it to a CD/DVD with a label, he added. It records DICOM images in their original digital format, allowing for easy image viewing on any PC or laptop using the MDR DICOM Viewer application burned on each disc. According to Neary, Xpress will be available in September 2008.
Additionally, the company showcased its MDR Publisher, which debuted at RSNA 2007 and is now commercially available. MDR Publisher is an automated enterprise class disc publishing system featuring an integrated high performance DICOM image server and dual DVD/CDR burners with full color graphics label printing.
Showing for the first time at SIIM was the company’s web user interface for Publisher, which enables a user to control the MDR Publisher from any PC, Neary concluded.
