Medical procedural and diagnostic equipment depend on crystal clear visualization from rapid, continuous video data feeds

Medically-certified video extenders transfer data from specialized equipment to high resolution monitors with high bandwidth, pinpoint accuracy and near-zero latency. Whether the visualization screens are nearby or at a distance, Vitex video extenders offer the highest quality to ensure reliability and throughput.

High res, crisp pictures help medical practitioners make the right decisions

Robotic surgical systems and diagnostic cardiology and neurology imaging equipment depend on the rapid transmission and processing of enormous amounts of critical data to create detailed imaging for surgeons and diagnosticians. Continuously transmitted, the data must be immediately and clearly displayed on a complex arrangement of screens and monitors.

Vitex video extenders deliver rapid transmission of high bandwidth data to create accurate, uncompressed, laser-sharp images with 4K/8K resolutions. Performance for critical, invasive procedures is seamless and uninterrupted.

Two common solutions for medical imaging

Straight fiber video extenders

Each fiber cable (available in multiple lengths) has a dongle at either end that plugs a source and a display side in the protocol that you need (VGA, DVI, KVM, HDMI, DisplayPort and USB).  This simple, plug-and-play solution offers EMI shielding (or immunity) and data security with minimal connections.

Detachable fiber video extenders

Designed for complex connections, this is an assembly that offers more flexibility If your source and monitor have different connections, say DVI at one end and connecting to DisplayPort or HDMI, the assembly would have modules that plug directly into the ports and the cables plug into the dongles. For settings with small wireways, the detachable cables are much easier to feed through walls without the dongle ends attached.  And, if you need to move the equipment or perform servicing, it’s easy to disconnect and reattach the cables as needed quickly.

Both options offer complete input/output electrical isolation, immunity to electromagnetic isolation (EMI), superior data security (over copper) and incredibly easy installation, troubleshooting and maintenance.

IEC certified for all medical electrical equipment

Vitex develops and supplies optical products that offer safety and reliability with high performance.  This includes products for the medical device OEM market that must be compliant with IEC/EN 60601-1 and IEC/EN 60601-1-2 for medical electrical equipment.

Data transmission-based healthcare equipment depends on a robust facility network

It’s not just medical visualization systems that are more demanding of quality data transmission.  Hospital infrastructures are expanding and with it are the capabilities and reliance on high capacity, shielded, secure networks. Whether it’s new construction or facility upgrades, bandwidth, cabling,  clarity, flexibility and security are critical for operational and connectivity and patient care.

Fiber optic transceivers, cables and components power medical center networks and medical devices to solve the limitations of copper wire cabling:

  • No electromagnetic interference with other electrical devices
  • Robust – resistant to high temperatures, water and radiation
  • Fast and reliable transmission for continuous, high volume data and longer distances
  • Galvanic isolation
  • Secure – very difficult to split
  • Non-toxic
  • Flexible, strong, slim form factor and lightweight – perfect for tight bends and tight spaces
  • Low maintenance
