Mount Sinai Hospital Enhances Doctor Training With HaiVision’s SHARE-HD Network Video Recorder

MONTREAL and CHICAGO — Dec. 2, 2009 — HaiVision Network Video today announced that Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto is using the SHARE-HD network video recorder within the Sydney and Florence Cooper Family Education Centre as an educational tool for medical students and hospital staff. HaiVision’s SHARE-HD enables convenient capture, management, and playback of video from practice sessions, making it easy for supervisors to observe training remotely and later, to review and analyze recorded video with students.

“The SHARE-HD system is a flexible and expandable system providing immediate significant operational benefits and allows for a robust foundation for further use of high-quality video in the future,” said Danny Santa Ana, video media specialist in the Graphics and New Media department at Mount Sinai. “HaiVision has been a valuable partner in providing advanced systems that help us to train better doctors.”

HaiVision’s SHARE-HD network video recorder takes full advantage of the benefits of performance network video encoders, decoders, set-top boxes, and soft player environments to enable straightforward capture, management, and playout of multiple industry-standard H.264 HD or SD video streams. The SHARE-HD system allows staff at the Cooper Centre to record and playout video anywhere, without requiring complex installation or configuration, and without compromising the privacy or security of recorded video.

Controlled via its Web interface or remotely through third-party control systems, SHARE-HD captures multiple streams synchronously and can replay these multi-stream sessions to performance decoders, set-top boxes, or soft players throughout the facility. The HaiVision system enables supervisors to watch student practice sessions across six rooms from a single location rather than move from room to room, and it also provides convenient review functionality that simplifies analysis and student instruction. Over a student’s four-year term at the Hospital, supervisors can return to video and use the SHARE-HD scrub bar to focus on and compare specific aspects of the student’s performance.

“We designed SHARE-HD specifically to meet the challenges of demanding markets, and it’s an ideal fit for advanced medical training applications, such as those at Mount Sinai,” said Peter Maag, senior vice president at HaiVision Network Video. “Offering a combination of high video quality, ease of use, and extensibility, the SHARE-HD enables the hospital to institute state-of-the-art training with minimal management and maintenance.”
