Epiphan's Mediphan technology named a "potentially life-saving innovation" by the Space Foundation
OTTAWA, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Mediphan, a division of Epiphan Systems Inc, an innovator in professional audio video capture and streaming technologies, has been inducted into the Space Foundation's Space Technology Hall of Fame. The Space Technology Hall of Fame recognizes technologies that improve life on Earth but were originally developed for or dramatically improved by space applications. The induction was held on April 11, 2013 during the 29th National Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Mediphan was created by Epiphan Systems as a special unit to develop audio video capture, streaming, recording, and replay products and technologies for telemedicine and remote guidance applications. Mediphan's products, DistanceDoc and MedRecorder, allow doctors to remotely view and record remote medical displays for diagnosis and medical training purposes.
Initially, Mediphan screen capture, streaming, and recording technology was developed and used to remotely train astronauts on the use of ultrasound equipment. Today, that same Mediphan-Epiphan technology is used in multiple medical equipment OEMs in many end markets such as ultrasound, defibrillation, eye care, pacemakers, gynecology, and pathology. Furthermore, the technology is being used across several product lines of Epiphan Systems' VGA/DVI/HDMI video display frame grabbers, multimedia display broadcast streaming systems, recording systems, and accessories.
Epiphan and Mediphan screen capture technologies are used in these products available to the general public:
DVI2USB 3.0, which adds telemedicine capability to existing medical equipment by
allowing users to share medical images and live video over
communication software such as Skype or WebEx. Lecture Recorder x2, which can capture any HD medical display and SD Camera to record and
stream them directly over the internet.
VGADVI Recorder Pro, which brings 2 SD and 2 HD channels enabling the viewing, recording, and streaming of multiple medical displays and cameras.
VGA GRID, which captures and combines multiple SD, HD and higher resolution channels at very high frame rates into a complete control panel view of cameras and medical equipment displays.
