Live Surgery Transmission with VCI and Cisco C90

Medicinteknikdagarna has since 2004 been the annual national meeting place for medical technology and IT for the actors involved in health care, research and business in Sweden. The conference usually attracts between 350-500 attendees and a large number of exhibitors. Medicinteknikdagarna is arranged by the Swedish Society for Medical Engineering and Physics (MTF) together with, among others, the University of Linköping, Östergötland County Council, Swedish Research Council, VINNOVA and the Foundation for Strategic Research.

The University Hospital in Linköping transmitted a live surgery to the conference using two Cisco C90 codecs and a VCI panel to control which sources that should be sent from the hospital to the audience (the VCI panel was located in the congress hall, and was used to control the Cisco codec in the hospital remotely!). The picture below shows one video stream with the patient and the surgeon in the operating theatre and one video stream from the hospitals PACS system containing 3D ultrasound of the patient's heart.
