Image Smiths Calibration Software Validated With Matrox Operating Room Solutions
Image Smiths VeriLUM compatible with Matrox Equinox and Onyx Series OR Solutions
Montreal, Canada, November 14, 2007 — Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of professional graphics solutions, today announced that the Image Smiths VeriLUM® calibration software has been validated and is compatible with Matrox Equinox™ Series graphics extension unit and Onyx™ Series companion display controller board. Using Matrox Equinox and Onyx Series solutions with VeriLUM calibration software helps OR staff view accurate and consistent images between the planning room, control room and the OR.
"We are pleased that we are able to provide OR staff with another solution to equip their digital OR," says Neil Goldstein, president/CEO, Image Smiths, Inc. "Our VeriLUM software combined with Matrox Equinox and Onyx solutions provides DICOM calibrated images for accurate viewing in the OR, where critical decisions are made."
Matrox Equinox connects one or two high resolution displays, keyboard, mouse, and audio to a host PC that is electrically and magnetically isolated up to 250m (820 feet) away, enabling the distribution and routing of data, audio/video and imagery in the OR and other areas while removing the PC from this space. Matrox Onyx–a PCIe, single-slot, fan-less companion display controller board to Matrox Equinox Series–reproduces the Equinox medical display and imaging capabilities onto displays next to the host PC, allowing OR staff to plan and monitor surgeries outside of the OR.
"Matrox is dedicated to developing solutions based on the needs of medical imaging professionals, including OR staff. Our Equinox and Onyx Series solutions helps propel the digital OR forward with accurate and consistent images displayed in the planning and control room, and in the OR," says George Rigas, business development manager for medical imaging, Matrox Graphics, Inc. "Working with Image Smiths in validating their VeriLUM software gives OR staff a reliable package to achieve DICOM-compliant images in their hospital."
