Medical Systems

Lives are on the line every day in the healthcare industry where only the most advanced technologies are utilized. Broadata Communications Inc. is proud to say it has led the world in designing and manufacturing advanced solutions for transmitting video, audio, and data over fiber and scaler-converters for surgical applications. BCI has shipped 50,000+ audio, video, and data fiber and scaler/format converter units specifically made for use with surgical applications.

Fiber Optics & Scaler/ format Converters

BCI’s flagship products, the Link Bridge products, include converters that input and output to DVI which support automatic EDID with no EDID learning. The Link Bridge products also boast the capability to transmit bi-directional analog audio, bi-directional video, and bi-directional data all in just one fiber. These latest advances in fiber optic technology allow for shorter downtimes for the surgical OR during installation. The Link Bridge copper and fiber converter/scalar line share one common footprint, thus reducing installation and assembly time while still managing to add several never-before-seen enhancing features to address the specific needs of medical applications. These capabilities and features include:

  • the ability to mix and match video signals without any additional hardware
  • the system’s converter built directly into the box
  • miniature single fiber optic transmission systems
  • simplified installation while still maintaining reduced points of failure
