Simulation Recording System

A Simulation Recording System is an audio visual performance analysis system which is used to showcase medical simulation activities during a training module or scenario. These systems are designed so that both the participants in the simulated learning activity and learners not taking part in the scenario can be debriefed on successful actions and potential errors after each module is completed. To immediately see a list of all the major vendors, visit our AudioVisual Recording & Debriefing Systems for Healthcare Simulation page.

Simulation Recording Systems operate through a series of cameras and microphones connected to a healthcare simulation debriefing system that allow instructors to create annotations during each learner’s training activities. Software features make real-time annotation playbacks possible, which helps guide learners and provide them with a sense of what they look like throughout the course of a simulation scenario. Note that your A/V Systems Designer and Integrator may provide your institution with the hardware it needs to operate simulation experiences, and the Simulation Recording Debriefing Systems (hardware and software) are an additional component that enables for GUI-based control of operational management.

These software playbacks are an important aspect of clinical simulation because they allow a single learner to be engaged with a medical manikin during a high-fidelity simulation. Meanwhile, the rest of a learning for research group can watch and evaluate the performance of the learner who is actively engaging in the scenario, without running the risk of not being able to see important elements of the simulation themselves.

Through a “bird’s eye” perspective, all learners are able to gain an expanded perspective of the surgical simulation scenario being experienced, leading to an expanded understanding of many standards and processes regarding patient care. The usage of Nursing Simulation Recording Systems has proven so successful that technicians, designers and simulation enthusiasts have sought to use them to set new training best-practices while using both mobile and fixed facilities.

Leading to such successful outcomes, a standard Simulation in Healthcare Recording System will come with training room, recording room and debriefing room components. In terms of application usage, the products will include recording software, briefing applications and software and audience feedback applications.

Other features typically included with Simulation Recording Systems consist of compact and robust static cameras to deliver high picture quality (1080p), zoom and focus software and optimal viewing angles for areas being observed. Another option is a wireless HD camera which can transmit and record live via wi-fi with practically no time lag (less than .2 seconds). The ability to pan, tilt and zoom are important as well, and cameras can come with a fully-controllable 360° all-round view, 1080p video quality (full HD) and a powerful 30 × optical zoom. These features lead to the optimal viewing of even small details in the training scenario.

Another feature, a video surveillance joystick allows for fast-responding, precise control of all network cameras by their axis. Then, a wireless microphone system will establish a standard system of professional stage audio technology. Upon switching on, a bodypack sender can be immediately ready for operation and comes with batteries or accumulators according to preference.

Lastly, and depending on the field of use, employing ambient microphones as either an alternative, or in addition to the wireless microphones can be useful. Some Simulation Recording Systems will offer all necessary connection availabilities for wired microphone arrangements and will advise learners of the appropriate ambient or interface microphone during a selection.

Simulation Recording System Examples

The company Education Management Solutions, LLC, headquartered in Exton, Pa., has developed another Simulation Recording System: SIMULATIONiQ Enterprise Cloud. This web-based solution gives instructors and educators the ability to manage their simulation center with offside IT infrastructure, including servers and webstorage. This eliminates the need for excessive amounts of hardware, and ensure the timely and guaranteed delivery, management and maintenance of IT services.

Features of the SIMULATIONiQ enterprise cloud software include automatic updates, a lowered total cost of ownership for the highest ROI and a reduced network bandwidth requirement with video and data storage in the cloud. This technology further enables the elimination of IT infrastructure updates and maintenance, a simplified workflow with EMS’ cloud-based resource maintenance and minimizes capital and operational expenses with a smaller IT footprint.

CAE Healthcare, a leading provider of medical simulation products as a division of its parent Aviation Simulation company CAE, provides the LearningSpace a/v recording system for clinical simulation. CAE LearningSpace is a powerful simulation center management solution for medical schools, nurse education programs, allied health and hospital-based simulation programs. The scalable healthcare education platform is user-friendly, web-based and secure. Invest in LearningSpace to gain a 360-degree view of your simulation training environment performance and educational outcomes. Your faculty will deliver more effective video-driven improvement with integrated patient data and facilitator’s notes. Your center director will provide objective, data-driven assessment tools while managing your healthcare simulation training environment more efficiently anytime and from anywhere.

As well, the product and services provider B-Line Medical, headquartered in Washington, DC, was one of the first software companies to bring web-based video capture and debriefing to the healthcare simulation industry. Dedicated to improving health outcomes for almost 15 years, B-Line Medical provides trusted and easy-to-use web-based platforms to help healthcare learners, educators and providers enhance patient safety. B-Line Medical also supports the development of medical simulation through their attendance and sponsorship of leading healthcare simulation conferences, like SimGHOSTS.



The software platforms designed and produced by the company also help to improve the delivery of care across healthcare facilities and systems. In achieving these outcomes, B-Line Medical has installed its SimCapture platform in over 500 institutions and in 35 countries. This platform offers a fully cloud-based software platform, remarkably small onsite audiovisual footprint and affordable subscription pricing. With user-friendly interfaces, robust technical support, meaningful data reporting systems, the technology has led to advanced annotated reviews of simulation training.

Then, in 2018, B-Line Medical launched the SimCapture Pro, followed by the SimCapture EMR. Through these additional, advanced platforms, educators can now build robust EMR forms directly in SimCapture’s Checklist Builder. Tabbed layouts, multiple types of form fields and multi-column options allow end-users to replicate any popular EMR, and users can leverage an existing EMR template to get started or build their own.

Additionally, Distributed by Level 3 Healthcare, a company headquartered in Mesa, AZ, SIMStation is another Simulation Recording System. The software comes equipped with professional wireless microphones used in stage technology, enabling instructors or learners to individually or synchronously record and play back communication of up to 5 training participants. SIMStation also provides a professional ambient microphone, which is capable of acoustically capturing the entire training environment. The compact and lightweight network cameras can be set up unobtrusively in the training room and provide a high-quality HD image.

Bringing this software product to the forefront of Simulation Recording Systems, SIMStation’s Voice Box comes with six network sockets for connection to the control room and up to five network cameras. Also, a wi-fi router for wireless cameras, audio-streaming hardware for Voice-of-God and Voice-to-Patient, as well as high-quality speakers securely encased in foam material inlays, are all integrated.

SIMStation is distributed worldwide, either directly from the company’s individual headquarters in Vienna (for Northern and Western Europe), or through another distributor and partner Level 3 Healthcare. In order to continually discover and learn about the demands for further development of Simulation Recording Systems, SIMStation employees attend in situ training all over the world and take part in national and international simulation events such as the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH), INACSL, SESAM, ASPIH, or SimGHOSTS.
