Sergio Epelbaum Transforms Live Surgical Streaming With Sonora

Prensario Magazine recently published a great article about how Sergio Epelbaum, founder of Argentina’s Vision Producciones, has been using Videon’s VersaStreamer to transform live streaming from the operating room during demonstrations at ophthalmological conferences.  Thanks Prensario!  [Read the Prensario article here in Spanish!]

Sergio founded Vision Producciones 25 years ago, and in the beginning, the company specialized in making surgical videos. He since has expanded the company into an award-winning full-service medical production company that does everything from live streaming of surgical procedures to website design and communications programming for medical journals. 

The magazine article showcases Sergio’s work for FacoExtrema, a huge live streaming event that draws thousands of online viewers — more viewers than there are ophthalmologists across Latin America, actually. Sergio puts a team in the OR to film the surgery and then uses a private network connected by antennas to send video to a local viewing area and streams it live for a worldwide audience. 

The Videon platform gives Sergio several critical benefits. For one, it’s a well-made product that’s available at an affordable price point. Because it supports H.264 and acts simultaneously as an encoder and decoder, the platform saves space while reducing bandwidth, cabling, and power requirements.

Sergio’s story is a great example of how advanced encoding solutions are changing live streaming across industries. Check it out!
