Prague, November 6, 2013. During the State of the Art medical conference on urogynecology and reconstruction pelvis surgery that took place in Zlín on 1st and 2nd November UltraGrid was used for video transmission of several surgeries using UltraGrid technology.

On 1st November the CESNET provided the conference participants with the moderated interactive live surgery broadcast. The operating doctors – heads of gynecology departments from across the Czech Republic – thus were able to react immediately to the questions from the conference hall where their surgeries performed in Regional Tomáš Baťa hospital were projected in HD and displayed in 2D and 3D formats. The broadcast included surgeries performed simultaneously in up to three operating theaters. Due to ethical reasons the broadcast was only opened for specialists gathered in the Congress Center Zlín.

The transmission was performed with a use of UltraGrid techno­logy that enables the video transmissions realization on a common PC or Mac computer hardware with a latency less than 100 ms, either by a non-compressed video or by a video compression accelerated on graphical cards while the quality of compressed video is visually non-distinguishable from a non-compressed video. For a long time the CESNET Association has been involved in the development of HD video transmission applications that can be used in the medicine. In particular in the area of on-line surgery broadcasts CESNET is one of the world leaders. Its achievements in this area are regularly presented on important technical forums. CESNET also collaborates with leading medical centers worldwide.
