“Forget everything you believe about the limitations of remote presence” is the tagline of Nikon’s new partner, Remote Meeting Technologies (RMT). Together RMT and Nikon will launch an HD telepathology system called “Be There Be Anywhere” at the USCAP annual meeting this week. Although Nikon has not been seen as a traditional player in the digital pathology market, they continue to make significant efforts to use digital technology to improve the practice of pathology.
The Be There Be Anywhere HD Telepathology System eliminates the need for special hardware and client software downloads, is easy to use, and is the only Telepathology system on the market (that I’m aware of) to offer true 1920 x 1080 HD resolution of live images. The “Be There Be Anywhere” system can even go with you and be moved to any location with the “Phone Home” module. Phone Home can increase flexibility and reduce the costs necessary to set up and support other locations.
This week I saw a demonstration of “Be There Be Anywhere” and spoke with RMT founder & CEO, Don Marchon. Don, a Hewlett Packard veteran, is very passionate about his products. During our conversation he confidently stated,
We are the best kept secret in telepathology!
Although I only had time for a short demonstration, I was very impressed! Don was using a Nikon 50i microscope, to deliver live, real-time images of a thin prep cytology slide. The 50i was equiped with RMTs iMEDHD package; the key component of Be There Be Anywhere. During the demo we launched our webcams, talked via VOIP, and I watched Don (from the comfort of my living room) deliver a powerpoint presentation via RMT’s web conference that could easily rival WebEx or GoToMeeting. The speed was amazing, but the image quality was like nothing I’ve seen before in telepathology! It really was HD!
Oh, and did I mention that RMT’s solutions are IT friendly? Don, with his wealth of knowledge from Hewlett Packard, designed his products to be secure, scaleable, and able to preform live audits of users and participants.
