Valentia Kinection

Valentia Kinection is open source community project. Purpose of Kinection is to provide user ability to publish Kinect data on socket, which then can be utilised on remote clients or HTML5 web pages using socket.

Project Description
Valentia Kinection serves as a pathway for transmission of data from Kinetic device to the web client. The service extracts data from the device and helps publish it on web sockets, which can then be accessed on web clients via HTML 5 supporting browser such as Safari. Kinect Service Manager operates as a client/server application that provides a platform to the three basic components of the service to communicate with each other, which are:

Kinect device
Kinection utility
Web client
Kinection first utilizes the attached Kinect sensor to accumulate image, depth and skeleton data, then filters this data and publishes it on web sockets. The service employs Microsoft Kinect SDK, which offers drivers and rich APIs for raw sensor streams and human motion tracking, to extract the image, depth and skeletal data from the sensor and publishes this data on the web using the SuperWebSocket. The web client caters for viewing Kinect data both in the form of Raw Data (joints ID) and Visual Skeleton (skeletal image).

Kinection allows you to stream Kinect color, depth and skeleton from one PC to another PC or a Windows Phone or iPhone/iPad or any other compatible device via websockets. Please review the client sample page for more details on how to use Kinection.

With Way2Care, physicians and other caregivers can roam throughout a defined work area and sign on to different workstations simply by tapping their badge against a workstation card reader. Way2Care can even use the same badge that’s used for building access—making that one ID card the only ID card your employees carry.

How Way2Care works as an advanced authentication solution

This streamlined solution for advanced authentication is created specifically to keep healthcare organizations in compliance, enabling hospital IT personnel to simultaneously lock down the desktop while supporting and enhancing clinical workflows.
Works with your existing badges.
The solution provides support for a wide variety of proximity card technologies including HID Prox, HID iCLASS, Casi-Rusco Prox, Indala Prox, Kantech, AWID, Mifare, and others.
Centrally controlled authentication grace periods.
The duration of the grace period is centrally controlled and can be set for the enterprise or by workstation group.
One tap to lock/log-off.
The solution can be configured to lock the workstation or require sign out of all applications gracefully with the tap of a badge.
Simplifies re-authentication.
The physician or nurse can simply tap their proximity badge on the reader to log on. If the authentication grace period has expired, a two-part authentication is then required.


expreSSO streamlines the organizational rollout of single sign-on with a powerful wizard tool. This tool grants healthcare organizations total ownership and control of how single sign-on is deployed and maintained hospital-wide through a cost-effective “Do It Yourself” approach.

expreSSO works as a single sign-on solution with:

Expedited clinical workflows on personal and shared workstations.
Quick, controlled access to patient data with a single set of credentials with automated sign-on.
Streamlined re-authentication means you can more quickly take care of business—such as ordering and administering medications and signing clinical documentation.
Automated log-offs help protect against unauthorized access to patient data.
A seamless, easy-to-use solution with easy installation, administration, and application integration makes the transition to single sign-on happen with little to no disruption.


Uniquely designed for healthcare, proVision enables organizations to automatically provision applications and easily create user accounts for employees and outside users who require access to computer resources. proVision provides near real-time status of a user’s electronic identities and includes rich delegation features to enable self-service capabilities for non-technical users. Simply put, proVision allows IT administrators to effectively track users and application accounts across the enterprise.

How proVision works as an identity management solution

proVision requests can be completed the same day.
Turnaround time on provisioning requests can be reduced from weeks to the same day.
Supports security and audit ratings.
Minimizes risk of unauthorized access by imposing consistent processes for managing system users.
Low IT costs and support.
Keep hands-on IT support and errors low with a consistent provisioning process for all computer users.
Supports compliance efforts.
Organizations can implement privacy policies that adhere to HIPAA, JCAHO, and other regulatory compliance. With comprehensive “fine-grain" provisioning, proVision makes it possible to automatically provision applications from corporate e-mail to the most complex clinical systems, with the necessary account attributes.
