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 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.
