Topcon Introduces New Wireless Review Station for its Non-mydriatic Retinal Camera Systems
Product: Wireless Review Station
Top Line: Topcon Medical Systems (TMS) is introducing a wireless review station that can be used with the TRC-NW300 and TRC-NW8 non-mydriatic capture systems running Imagenet 5. The station allows eyecare professionals to review patients’ retinal images from anywhere in their offices, even when going from room to room.
Close Up: The device allows reviewing images from an Imagenet 5 capture station via Wi-Fi up to a distance of 30 ft. The transfer period is only five seconds when saving captured images in JPEG format. The wireless review station can be left permanently in an exam room or can be mobile from room to room in a 30 ft. radius. Commercially available monitor, keyboard and mouse can be added by the user for his/her convenience.
Vital Stats: The wireless review station includes a Wi-Fi capable Imagenet System Notebook with Imagenet 5 review software. The first wireless review station to be used in an office requires the use of a wireless router which is connected via USB to the capture station. Additional wireless review stations do not need extra routers. Several wireless review stations can be used at the same facility.
