CuratOR Caliop


The constantly growing number of medical devices and equipment used in the OR is a major challenge for OR and nursing staff. This is because, even in stressful situations, they have to be able to operate the equipment without making an error. Different user interfaces and systems that are not compatible with one another sometimes force the OR team into using awkward workflows.

With CuratOR Caliop, EIZO has developed an integration software that centralizes key OR-workflows on a single platform.

  • Simple and intuitive menu navigation
  • Manufacturer-independent integration
  • Designed for use with mouse and touchscreen as well as remotely (foot switch / endoscope head buttons)
  • Only one user interface is necessary
  • Modules can be added on and additional elements can be purchased later
  • Saves time and money
  • Uncomplicated administration


Comprehensive integration

CuratOR Caliop supports manufacturer-indepentent integration and seamless interaction between the connected OR-components. With its simple and intuitive menu navigation, they can be easily operated from a central location. Additionally, the system offers comprehensive video management functionality and facilitates precise workflow planning.

Verified Usability

The intuitive operation and user-friendliness of the Caliop software achieved an SUS-Score of 81.1 out 100 possible points, representing „very good“ to „excellent“ usability.
• 96% of the experts had a positive overall impression of the system
• 100% of subjects found the system easy to learn
• 100% of the experts felt confident working with the system
• 40% reduction in task performance time after only one usage

Modular design

Caliop consists of a range of software elements that can be individually purchased in accordance with local needs. Collectively, these elements form the foundation of the modules, the logical functional blocks of the software. In this way, Caliop can easily be adapted to local requirements and expanded as new needs arise.

Basic Functions

Irrespective of the locally installed elements, Caliop supports OR- workflows with a range of basic functions such as the dashboard, stopwatches and timers, and a choice of design schemes.

Video management (Caliop vm)

In addition to these basic functions, the Caliop vm element enables video management functionality for all available sources.
All image and video sources connected to the EIZO system are displayed in clearly arranged, designated thumbnail images. Caliop also presents display elements connected to the system, such as external monitors and the supported layout configurations.
Video sources can be selected and assigned to the desired monitor or layout through a simple mouse click or touch screen operation. Existing connections are indicated visually. The size of the displayed sources and targets can be easily adapted using the scaling buttons.

Documentation und archiving (Caliop doc)

With its Patient Management, Recording and Archiving modules, the Caliop doc element facilitates procedural documentation and the archiving of all available video sources.
The Patient Management module offers access to patient lists, manual creation of new patient data, and the ability to manage this data.
The Recording module supports quick orientation through the thumbnail images presented for each video source connected to the EIZO system. The recording of the respective video sources can be started and stopped using the associated buttons. Additioanl buttons allow users to create snapshots during a recorded procedure.
The Archiving module shows all images captured within the system. Viewing preferences for the archived images can be established via the module bar. From this list of recordings, users can individually select and display the images to be archived with a simple mouse click or touch screen operation.

Connection (Caliop con)

The Caliop con element establishes the software connection to the DICOM worklist and PACS or HL7 systems.
The Connection module allows Caliop doc to be integrated into the hospital information system. Patient data are thus available in Caliop without media discontinuity. As such, recorded videos and snapshots can be linked to the patient data in the hospital information system and archived. The connection via DICOM worklist and HL7 supports the selection of patient data from the hospital’s IT infrastructure. DICOM storage is used to export images generated during surgery. It is also supports connections to non-medical archives.



Miscellaneous Basic functions

Displays general information, such as the name of the hospital, displays selection of available background images

Stopwatch and timer:
Multiple timers and countdowns can be set and running at the same time


Video Management:
Manages all video sources and targets, assigns source to desired destination by click/touch operation, layout selection, supports image scaling to display size through buttons for adapting to the varying number of input signals, optional remote control functions (e.g. endoscopic camera head buttons or foot switches)

Patient Management:
Manages patient data, enables manual creation of patient data, downloads the patient list* from HIS via DICOM or HL7 (*in conjuction with Caliop con)

Records video sequences from selected sources, concurrent screenshot function

Displays and stores selected videos and images, supports various user viewing preferences, 3 storage options (USB medium, PACS*, different hospital archiving destinations*)
(*in conjuction with Caliop con)

Connection to the hospital’s data interfaces using DICOM worklist and HL7, export using DICOM storage or connection to non-medical archive
