What is medVC?

medVC is a remote collaboration tool for medical professionals allowing real-time audio-video communication and the usage of specialised medical services. It is designed to be installed in operating rooms, conference rooms and doctors’ offices and makes it possible to send multiple High Definition (HD) video streams coming from cameras, microscopes, endoscopes and other medical equipment. The doctors have the possibility to pause video streams, mark areas of the picture, take snapshots, and collaboratively work on DICOM images. Furthermore, medVC is capable of transmitting stereoscopic (3D) video coming from cutting edge medical devices. All these features make medVC a superb remote collaboration and education tool for medicine.
