Olympus Scientific Solutions Americas says it will offer the Onsight remote collaboration platform provided by Winnipeg-based Librestream Technologies Inc. to provide additional functionality to its product portfolio.

Using Onsight, Olympus customers in industries including aerospace, manufacturing and oil and gas can share live visuals from remote visual inspection (RVI) and non-destructive testing (NDT) instruments with remote experts for rapid decision making in the field.

The Librestream solution includes Onsight Connect collaboration software and the Onsight 400R Collaboration Hub device to connect to Olympus videoscopes, ultrasound and other test instruments.

An industrial inspection equipment manufacturer headquartered in Japan, Olympus Scientific Solutions Americas is an innovator in the global scientific and imaging marketplace.

"The Onsight platform complements the Olympus product capabilities by enabling remote collaboration across the Olympus RVI and NDT portfolio," Kerry Thacher, president and chief executive officer of Winnipeg-based Librestream, said in a statement.

"Onsight compliments the capabilities of the Olympus Scientific Cloud to deliver a rich collaboration experience. The ability to instantly share visuals of the environment and from Olympus test instruments is important to our customers as they look for ways to leverage experts across their organizations," added Karen Smith, senior vice-president, Strategy & Marketing at Olympus.

"Librestream has over a decade of experience in remote collaboration, especially in low bandwidth environments, which is often where our customers operate," she said.
