 DVD Recorder
ERI Inc (Union, Iowa), a distributor and service provider for Panasonic, Sony, and Mitsubishi medical imaging equipment, offers Panasonic’s LQ-MD800 DVD recorder. It directly records into available space, eliminating the fear of recording over previous recordings. Recording and play can be controlled from the ultrasound machine, and the RS-232C/USB cables can be used to send patient names and IDs for use as program titles. The LQ-MD800 protects recorded images and records Doppler sounds from ultrasound equipment in high quality audio. A list of recordings—including the date and time they were recorded—is available at the push of a button. Special features include repeat-play and image editing capabilities.
