Case Study: Collaboration is the Latest Weapon in the War on Cancer

Upgrading Audio-Visual System is Key to Better Outcomes

When a major cancer hospital in North Texas decided to become more collaborative, they turned to Netsync for a video conferencing system that would support audio-video presentations in their boardroom.

Technology at the Forefront of the Fight

After working with the hospital to determine their needs and expectations, Netsync began with the installation of three LCD monitors in the room: two 55″ LCD models for the side, and a main 86″ LCD monitor. Below that main LCD, Netsync installed a Cisco Quad Camera for pickup and automated camera movement.

For audio pickup, Netsync installed a Cisco ceiling microphone above the main LCD. They also put in two ceiling speakers for broadcasting codec audio. This would distribute audio from remote conference participants and audio provided by content sources.

Content sharing was managed through the Cisco Telepresence Touch 10 panel. Two clickers were supplied for use at the conference table, enabled by Barco ClickShare. Finally, a Mersive Pod was installed behind the main LCD, providing a network connection for access by the room participants. As well, NetSync worked with the client to modify some of the equipment in a way that would better suit their needs.

Greater Collaboration for Greater Success

Because of these upgrades, the hospital’s doctors were able to collaborate more easily and more efficiently with each other and with specialists from all over the world, resulting in better patient care and outcomes. In a space like cancer care, where lives are literally on the line, installations like this are of critical importance.
