HD training for cardiac surgeons
A Dutch company organises international postgraduate education programmes for cardiologists, run by the firm's Director, cardiologist Ton Hooghoudt MD PhD.
The Netherlands – Medical Audiovisual Services Holland BV (MASH), which specialises in the scientific preparation, production, postproduction, multiplication and distribution of postgraduate education material in videotape, CD-video and DVD, also organises international postgraduate education programmes for cardiologists, run by the firm’s Director, cardiologist Ton Hooghoudt MD PhD.
The MASH studio is fully equipped for high-end broadcast video production, and the firm has recently upgraded its video facilities from Analog Betacam/DVCPRO to High Definition (HD), because the higher resolution of 1,080 scan lines – compared with the normal 625 scan lines of a non-HDTV image – ensures crisper image quality.
The firm’s new system, from Sony, includes an HDW-2000 HDCAM camcorder, BVM-D20 multi-format monitor, and XPRI HD non-linear editing system, to provide complete in-house processing of HDCAM recordings, in high as well as standard definition.
