Introducing AI-powered innovation in the operating room

Our commitment to advancing surgical precision and patient care drives us forward. We are starting up this brand-new project with NVIDIA and SoftAcuity to develop two groundbreaking AI-powered products that will enhance our Nexxis portfolio.

The new products will integrate NVIDIA’s Jetson Orin and IGX Orin system-on-module, and feature generative AI voice control, advanced computing, and AI-powered data analytics capabilities. Both new products will seamlessly integrate into our Nexxis ecosystem, providing high-speed connectivity and computing power.

Empowering surgical teams around the world

Based on these NVIDIA Holoscan-powered products, we plan to build a future-proof platform, capable of hosting multiple AI and data analytics applications for medical environments. The products will offer a simple and flexible setup to allow easy deployment of validated AI applications.

“Barco’s history is strongly connected with high-quality visualization and fast, powerful computer processing,” says Johan Fornier, our Executive VP for Surgical and Modality. “Our collaboration with NVIDIA and SoftAcuity will help prepare our Nexxis portfolio for a smart, AI-powered future, where surgical and interventional workflows are more flexible and more efficient for healthcare professionals and their patients.”
