Health Center in Germany Deploys IndigoVision Technology

One of Europe’s most modern health centers has brought in IndigoVision to ensure that staff are able to monitor high dependency patients across a large suite of rooms and carry out analysis work. The new IP video system replaces ageing analogue equipment that was becoming maintenance intensive and failure prone.

Located in Southern Germany in the village of Kork, part of the city of Kehl, the Health Centre has commissioned IndigoVision to incorporate the latest surveillance technology into its medical diagnosis system, to aid in the diagnosis and evaluation of patients. The surveillance system was jointly developed by IndigoVision’s authorised partner Deininger Elektronik GmbH and the Centre itself.

High quality, full-frame rate video and audio means that high dependency patients can be carefully monitored and analysed. IndigoVision’s system comes with a unique guarantee of no dropped video frames under any condition, and fully synchronised audio and video. This ensures that the clinicians do not miss anything when analysing the video. Clinic staff monitor the live cameras and analyse recorded footage using ‘Control Center’, the user interface to IndigoVision’s Security Management Solution SMS4TM.

Workstations can be located at any point on the network thanks to the fully distributed system and architecture. ‘Control Center’ is licensed on an unrestricted basis, enabling the clinic to install any number of workstations for no more than the cost of an entry-level PC. Currently, eight workstations are located at different nurse stations around the clinic, each monitoring eight rooms. Additional workstations are used for medical analysis.

All 64 patient rooms are fitted with an IR-sensitive day/night analogue PTZ camera, with patient privacy options, connected to the network via an IndigoVision encoder module which converts the video feed to digital using advanced compression techniques. IndigoVision’s ability to stream very high-quality video using minimum bandwidth meant the clinic could install the IP video system on its existing IT network. Video and audio from all the cameras is recorded on IndigoVision standalone network video recorders (NVR-AS 3000s) installed in the clinic’s data centre. Video clips can be easily exported for permanent archive.
