4K video recording
The HVO-4000MT records detail-packed 4K (3840 x 2160) video using Sony's XAVC S codec and efficient
MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression for extremely high quality images with four times the resolution of Full HD.
Recording bitrate is selectable to suit various requirements for picture quality and recording length.
Simultaneous recording in 4K and 2K (Full HD)
The same video footage is recorded simultaneously in 4K and 2K (Full HD). Down-converted from the
captured 4K video, this 2K material is ideal for everyday sharing and playback on standard PCs.
Simultaneous recording on internal HDD and external media
Video files can be recorded simultaneously onto the internal hard disk drive and an external USB HDD, USB
flash drive or network server. This shortens workflow, with no need to export or copy videos to an external
device after recording on the internal HDD.
Long recording time
The recorder’s high-capacity 4TB disk drive allows long duration video recording, even in 4K. Three image
quality settings (Standard/High/Best) permit between 46 and 119 hours of 4K video recording (or between
311 and 634 hours of Full HD video recording). Individual recordings can be up to 24 hours long.
Networked data transfers via CIFS
Recorded data can be uploaded over the hospital network from the operating room to a computer using
CIFS (Common Internet File System) for convenient centralised storage and sharing.
3.5" colour LCD
The front panel's 3.5" colour LCD screen allows current input image and status, playback images and
recorder settings to be reviewed without the need for an external display.
Light, compact design
Designed for easy integration a medical cart, the space-saving recorder is 76mm slimmer and weighs 1.9 kg
less than previous models (HVO-1000MD and HVO-3000MT).
Low power consumption
The recorder consumes approximately 65W less power than previous models (HVO-1000MD and HVO3000MT).
Touch panel support
Adding an optional USB external touch panel monitor (commercially available) simplifies data input (for
example, entering the patient’s ID, name, gender and date of birth).
