• The new HRM (Health Remote Monitoring) technology developed by Videoworks was unveiled during a press conference on September 29
  • The stand was equipped with a 5G wireless connection simulating the condition of a yacht on the high seas
  • Important innovations in the development of user interfaces with HTML5 technology
  • New lighting systems featuring RGB technology turns a yacht into a nightclub without excessive impact on appearance, ensuring spaces remain multifunctional

More than 25 years of experience and hundreds of innovative audio/video, entertainment, IT and lighting & comfort systems installed on board superyachts sailing all over the world. With these premises, Videoworks has been again at the Monaco Yacht Show September 27 – 30, presenting a series of innovations ranging from Remote Health Monitoring to new uses for on-board equipment and devices and innovative entertainment.


A completely new development was unveiled at this year’s show is HRM (Health Remote Monitoring) technology, permitting remote monitoring of health parameters via broadband connections. The system can provide the owners’ or guests’ own personal physician with real-time information on their health, offering a reasonably complete clinical picture (for instance, by transmitting blood pressure, heartbeat and blood oxygenation data) so that the doctor can determine whether the patient can be treated on board, will soon require further examination in a hospital, or requires emergency intervention.

What makes this service truly original is the direct connection with the patient’s personal physician, rather than with a service centre, as is commonly the case of telemedicine, in which the patient’s data is analysed by whichever doctor is on duty. This preserves the patient’s privacy and, above all, ensures direct communication with his or her own doctor, who is familiar with the patient’s pathologies and state of health.

The development of this new technology is made even more efficient thanks to the 5G and the new connections guaranteed by the LEO (Low Earth Orbit) satellite system, one of the innovations that Videoworks is able to guarantee on board, with a connection just as stable and fast as we are used to having at home or in the office.

During the Videoworks press conference at the Monaco Yacht Show, and for the duration of the boat show, visitors were able to test the HRM system by measuring their blood oxygen level and heart rate using a classic pulse oximeter, reproducing what the system does on board. The recorded saturation value appeared on a screen, which can be reproduced on the smartphone or tablet of the person undergoing the test thanks to a QR Code provided upon completion of the test. This demonstrates how the patient’s personal physician back at home can access the data quickly and securely, while protecting the patient’s privacy. Owners and guests can be connected with their own personal physician, anywhere and any time!

The monitoring system was described in detail in the press conference with the participation of Professor Luchetti Gentiloni of the Polytechnic University of Italy’s Marche region, a leading physician in general medicine and first aid, explaining the benefits of HRM and how it works in lay terms. In addition to this, multifunctional furniture modules called ”Life Modules”, designed by FM Architettura D’Interni, were also unveiled for the very first time.
