Endoscopic technology developer Karl Storz Endoscopy-America, Inc. has established a reseller agreement with Rivulet Communications, which produces high-definition medical video technology for hospital IP networks.

The partnership will combine Karl Storz OR1 integrated operating room technology with Rivulet’s IP Video Transport and Storage applications to provide complete OR and video solutions and will enable Karl Storz to resell Rivulet’s complete networking product line. It allows both companies to jointly sell, market, and promote their products and services for integrated operating room solutions in the United States.

Combining the two companies’ platforms will enable hospitals to incorporate various applications for IP transport of medical-grade video into integrated operating room environments, demonstrate new surgical techniques in real time, use live two-way video interactions with other departments to streamline transfer of information and support decision making, manage visual consultations on desktop PCs, and store videos on the network for analysis, editing, and review.
