Cardiology workshop

Cardiology workshop

January 2017

We continue to support local medical communities by bringing live transmissions of cardiology interventions to the specialists from the local hospitals in the South Moravian region of the Czech republic. We have transmitted three cases during the St. Anne 2017 cardiology workshop including a not planned transmission of acute heart attack treatment. From a technical point of view, we are starting to bring HEVC video coding into production with the UltraGrid to allow for higher video quality on commodity network links available especially in local hospitals.

NITS symposium

NITS symposium

December 2016

On Friday 9th December we have transmitted two unique cases of non-intubated thoracic surgeries from the University Hospital Brno to the participants of the NITS symposium held in the Masaryk University campus. Both cases showcased a unique method of lung wedge resection and lobectomy presented by specialists from the National Taiwan University Hospital in Taipei. The non-intubated method of the surgeries was carried out on such a large scale for the very first time in the Czech republic providing the patient the most considerate treatment available. The transmissions using the UltraGrid platform left a very good impression in terms of both images quality (namely from the laparoscopic camera) and the interactivity.

"We’ve been using UltraGrid for the past few years now, primarily for demonstrations at some big events, and showcasing it to universities within the UK, whom have begun looking at the value of UltraGrid with in their own institutions. Being able to showcase video up to 4k using a solution that it easily attainable and free to use is a huge benefit to the UK education and research sector."

Emma Smith

"At the New World Symphony, Ultragrid is our tool of choice for high-resolution video streaming as it offers a high degree of flexibility and reliability. It is amazing what you are able to achieve with consumer computer components and the software. The Ultragrid team is also hugely supportive and willing to help new users get off the ground quickly."

"We use Ultragrid to present networked performances of dance and music, using high bandwidth networks between Barcelona and other cities across the world."

"Within LiveMediaStreamer framework project we can use UltraGrid as a far-end client, as a transmitter and/or receiver, in order to reach mimimum delay. We have tested other clients but this is the only one that lets achieve minimum overall latency when mixing different sources. Indeed we both CESNET and i2CAT Foundation carried out a TNA with results explained in our News section."

"We used Ultragrid to conduct a distributed performance between us in Las Vegas and the UK. The students performed and interacted with each other through large life size projection screens. There were two live performances and the event was also streamed online. Here's a link to our website providing a description and an archive of the streamed event.

Although our first project involved performing arts, we seek other institutions to collaborate in any space."

"UltraGrid is SFJAZZ’s “go-to” platform for artistic collaboration on the Research Education Network. We have executed distributed performances with higher education jazz studies programs across the nation, master-class with peering institutions, and mass performance and workshop distribution with interactive elements involving public libraries. The support from the UG Team is nothing short of phenomenal. UltraGrid is the SFJAZZ standard."
