Stryker Endoscopy Launches the World’s First High-Definition Wireless Surgical Display

I just stumbled across this and was really amazed by it. These companies have worked out a way to get a 1080p image transmitted wirelessly for less clutter in the OR. This could definitely be something we'll see available for dentists and consumers in the future. Here is the press release:

Santa Clara, Calif. – December 30, 2008 – AMIMON Inc. is pleased to announce that Stryker Endoscopy, a division of Stryker Corporation, has launched the world’s first high-definition (HD) wireless video display for the operating room. Stryker Endoscopy’s WiSeTM HDTV is embedded with AMIMON’s wireless HD technology. AMIMON has granted Stryker Endoscopy exclusive access to AMIMON’s technology for the medical endoscopy market.

“Stryker Endoscopy is known for providing Best-in-Class high-definition visualization for surgeons,” said William Chang, Stryker Endoscopy’s Vice President of Research & Development and Chief Technology Officer. “Only AMIMON’s High-Definition Wireless Technology is capable of transmitting the surgical video with no perceptible lag or interference throughout the entire operating room. This will allow surgeons greater flexibility in positioning the surgical display while operating. In addition, the hospitals and surgery centers will save the hassle and cost of routing DVI cables through the ceilings and overhead booms.”

“AMIMON’s High-Definition Wireless Technology is gaining strong industry support and is setting the standard for wireless HDTV connectivity,” said Noam Geri, AMIMON’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. “Several major CE manufacturers are currently offering a full range of products based on AMIMON’s technology.
