UCLA Medical Center specifies Linx 8x8 DVI Matrix Switcher

ALAMEDA, CA--When the UCLA Medical Center designed their Neurological Operating Suite the mission requirement was for an all-digital HD path between sources and displays. High-tech medicine demands top quality video and graphics imaging. To route high resolution digital signals form sources to displays, Roderick Plummer, chief design engineer at Karl Storz Endoscopy, specified a Linx 8x8 DVI Matrix Switcher.

Sources include an Endoscopic Camera with a resolution of 1080p, a Room Overview camera at 1080i, a Surgical In-light camera, a Stereo Tactical Surgical Navigation system, and a PACs PC for medical images like patient x-rays. Content includes video, images from the medical cameras, computer images such as three-dimensional renderings of human anatomy.

The equipment previously used had proven inconsistent in performance as well as difficult to use. One major issue was that the various signal sources presented a wide range of resolutions and EDID protocols. So a switcher with advanced EDID management capabilities was needed. The Linx's Total EDID Manager software tremendously simplified the operation. With the signals routed through the Linx to an RGB Spectrum Media Wall processor, it provides UCLA accurate, jitter-free images 24/7, 365 days a year.

System installation was performed by AVI-SPL.
