 TIMS Medical Releases TIMS MVP 4.0


(Chelmsford, MA – November 18, 2020) The TIMS Medical® division of Foresight Imaging® (www.tims.com) announces the release of TIMS MVP® 4.0, the 4th generation product for high resolution recording, review, analysis, editing, labeling, graphic annotation, and archiving of medical imaging studies with synchronized audio.

The previous product, TIMS DICOM System 3, was focused on the Modified Barium Swallow (MBS) study for speech pathology and archiving to PACS, and is the most widely deployed product of its kind in the market. With the introduction of TIMS MVP 4.0, the company is adding advanced productivity features for MBS studies, and also adding extensive performance and functionality to target FEES studies (Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing), endoscopy recording, surgical recording, and other non-DICOM centric procedures. These advancements include:

  • A new, high-performance software platform
  • Auto-save: all recordings & changes are saved automatically on-the-fly
  • Non-destructive editing
  • Semi-automated labeling during recording (“Protocol Mode”)
  • High resolution, color 1080p video recording & playback at 30 fps (FEES, endoscopy, surgery)
  • Virtually unlimited video capture length
  • Motion JPEG & MP4 video recording
  • Graphic annotation
  • Archiving to PACS & VNA (DICOM & native formats)
  • High performance editing interface
  • MP4 export for presentations & sharing

“Two years ago, we focused our engineering team to completely re-design and rebuild our TIMS software from the ground up. Our goal was to substantially improve the productivity of our current MBS customers and add new, high-performance capabilities to enable us to satisfy the recording, workflow, and connectivity requirements for the FEES and endoscopy markets,” said Tony Molinari, VP Sales & Marketing. “The result is our new, TIMS MVP 4.0 product. We have been in beta now for over 6 months at multiple customer sites, and the positive feedback has been tremendous. With just our new ‘Protocol Mode’ feature, which streamlines labeling during recording, customers are reporting a savings of over 5 minutes per study compared to TIMS DICOM System 3.”
