Computers

Each Sound system comes with at least 2 computers, an Acquisition Station and a SoundBank Server. The computers are connected through the local hospital network. Additional computers may be included in the order as well as copies of eFilm that can be placed on the hospital’s computers.

  • SmartDR Acquisition Comptuer – acquires images for review, basic viewing, and transferring your DICOM radiographs to the SoundBank Server.
  • SoundBank Server – Your local DICOM server allowing you store DICOM images of any kind (x-rays, ultrasounds, CT, MR, etc), view images at any eFilm workstation, and automatically transfer images to Antech Imaging Services.
  • Sound ReadyView Workstation: an all-in-one computer with a stand-alone license of eFilm 4.0 pre-loaded. This station can also be used as a hospital workstation.

SmartPACS

Setting up your SmartPACS includes both the physical connection and the basic Windows setup. SmartPACS is designed to operate without any additional input devices (monitor, mouse, keyboard, etc.).

SmartPACS needs a network connection and a place to sit on a shelf. We recommend placing the SmartPACS in your network closet or by your existing PM Server.

No Battery backup is included. Sound does not recommend a battery backup. If the clinic chooses to do so, we recommend not installing the backup software as it an conflict with the functionality of the SmartPACS. If a clinic chooses to add a battery backup, they assume all liability.

  • SoundBank – A stand alone or headless server. It can be accessed via Remote Desktop Connection
