eInfochips, a leading product design company, today launched the Andromeda Reference Platform for medical imaging and telemedicine designers. The Andromeda video processing system is an app-ready development platform for medical imaging systems including endoscopy, angiography, mammography, arthroscopy and ultrasound. For telemedicine engineers, Andromeda also is a wireless-ready platform for applications that connect doctors, patients and families together on a network. For both medical imaging and telemedicine design teams, Andromeda accelerates prototype development while reducing costs.
According to Frank Berry, founder and senior analyst at IT Brand Pulse, "Medical imaging companies are focused on out-innovating each other. Reference platforms like Andromeda allow design teams to maintain that focus, and to get innovative products to market faster."
