Barco technology takes operating rooms to the next level


Al-Hada Military Hospital, located northwest of the Taif region, is one of Saudi Arabia’s main military hospitals. Employing over 160 physicians, the hospital provides state-of-the-art healthcare across a wide range of disciplines. In order to deliver the very best care possible, Al-Hada Military Hospital invests heavily in cutting-edge technology and medical equipment. When the hospital management decided to transform eleven of its operating rooms into digital operating rooms, they called in the help of Gulf Medical Co. Ltd to supply state-of-the-art turnkey solutions.

Why Barco?

  • Ease of use
  • High-resolution images/videos

Share uncompressed high-resolution images

Gulf Medical’s Territory Manager commented: “The surgeons wanted a flexible solution that would allow them to see, use and switch video on any display in the OR, without disruption, to help them work more efficiently. We knew that Barco’s video-over-IP technology would enable them to share uncompressed, high-resolution videos with near-zero latency.” Gulf Medical set up Barco’s Nexxis video-over-IP technology in eight ORs as an integrated part of the Karl Storz OR1 Fusion Solution. Thanks to the OR1 Fusion fully integrated operating room solution, the surgeons can now interact and communicate between ORs and auditoriums to share insights with peers, ask second opinions or even train colleagues or students.

Excellent images

In addition to the Nexxis technology, Gulf Medical Solutions also installed 16 MDSC-2226 and 5 MDSC-2242 surgical displays with built-in Nexxis decoders, which are fully compatible with the OR1 Fusion. Their ease of use and cleanability make them a perfect fit for operating rooms. Most importantly, the displays provide the surgeons at the Al-Hada Military Hospital ORs with accurate, realistic images in full HD resolution with an excellent viewing angle. The video-over-IP solution, combined with the Karl Storz OR1 Fusion, transform traditional ORs into truly digital ORs where surgeons can focus completely on operational procedures to ensure the best possible outcomes.
