Product The SwitchPoint Infinity 2 (SPI2) and SwitchPoint Element (SPE), an integrated voice, video, data router and teleconferencing interface for the operating room. The SwitchPoint Infinity 2 (SPI2) and SwitchPoint Element (SPE) are designed as an integrated voice, video, data router and teleconferencing interface for the operating room. The primary intent of the SPI2 and SPE product lines is to allow operating room personnel a center point for controlling all equipment and communication during surgery. The SPI2 and SPE route surgical and non-surgical images throughout the operating room to facilitate operating procedures. All video inputs and video outputs of the router require the use of various signal and cables types. Digital and analog video signals transmit from the auxiliary devices in the room through the SPI2 and SPE router to designated monitors. The primary difference between the SPI2 and SPE systems is that the SPE is a more compact version of the SPI2 offering less video inputs and outputs, and is intended to be used in smaller clinics.
