Medical monitors for endoscopy
Monitors play a very important role in the chain of endoscopic imaging.
All the medical monitors in the portfolio of Richard Wolf undergo an array of comprehensive tests in order to guarantee optimum system compatibility with the ENDOCAM endoscopy camera.
The portfolio ranges from very bright 26" monitors with LED backlight and digital fiber inputs, through 32" 3D monitors, to the compact 15" LCD which operates as a second observation monitor. All medical monitors have Full HD images in HD quality.
There is a large range of assembly options: directly on the RIWOmobil equipment cart, on special swivel arms or on ceiling mounts.
ZeroWire - Medical grade wireless transmission of HD signals in the operating room
ZeroWire enhances flexibility and ergonomic convenience in the operating room with flexible positioning of an additional monitor. No more signal cables required. Transmission takes place from the transmitter module (TX) to the receiver (RX). The image source for the transmitter is e.g. an HD ENDOCAM and the receiver passes its signal on to an LCD monitor. This creates an invisible HD link with a range of up to 10 meters without entailing the risk of stumbling over cables.
ZeroWire is the only technically refined HD wireless system which transmits in real time without interference.
Compatibility with the two formats HDTV and HD Medical
ZeroWire is compatible with all HD ENDOCAM cameras. The transmitter has a DVI and an HDI-SDI input. Assembly of the ZeroWire is simple and does not require specialist personnel. The assembly tools are optimized for combination with NDS monitors, but in some cases they are also suitable for use with SONY monitors.
ZeroWire is always used when a cable solution is not the method of choice, is too complex or too expensive. One example would therefore be transmissions from the endoscopic video cart to:
- LCDs at ceiling mounts, if an LCD is retrospectively installed in the operating room and effective cable management is not possible
- LCDs on mobile mounts which are to be positioned flexibly in the operating room
- LCDs, which are mounted on the wall and routing a new cable would be too expensive
- Permanently connecting an HD documentation system which is installed at a fixed point in a room to the hospital network
