The new UR-50BD image data recorder from TEAC records lossless images and videos in high definition (HD) quality. This makes it ideal for all medical imaging processes such as ultrasounds, X-rays, endoscopies or video recordings used to aid in operations. Its broad compatibility permits storage and playback on many devices or media. The TEAC UR-50BD is now available from Rutronik. Not only does the UR-50BD support all NTSC/PAL formats but also all HD video and audio formats. This makes it completely compatible with almost all medical imaging procedures used to create recordings. The stills or moving images created can be saved directly in real time onto removable media including the most widely used and cheapest media DVDs, USB sticks and Blu-ray discs. DVI and HDMI interfaces are available for high-definition data archiving. The USB port on the front of the recorder allows for the convenient connection of USB sticks and hard disks. The stand-alone device has an integrated 100 GB HDD hard disk on which backup copies can be stored. CD, DVD and Blu-ray players as well as conventional PCs can be used to replay the recordings. The device is operated via RS-232C and USB. All product information stated in the current press release is based on the franchise situation in Germany. Country specific variations may therefore be possible.
