Stratford Hospital has recently undergone a major multi-million pound renovation and extension to help provide the best healthcare facilities for patients.
Construction included a new 3-storey hospital for ambulant care incorporating a cancer treatment unit, outpatient facility and eye unit.
As part of the new build provision was needed for various AV systems and technologies to be deployed and Adaptive IT were successful in winning the project.
Three main areas needed AV provision:
MDT Room – For multi-site remote meetings undertaken by specialist staff. Users needed to be able to communicate between locations to alleviate the need for travel but also had to be able to see medical images in sufficient quality.
Digital Signage Solution – information, news and other SWFT related messages needed to be displayed in communal areas.
Presentation Suite – This can be split into two separate or one communal space so a suitable display system needed to be employed depending on the type of presentation required and be easy enough for a first time user to interface with.
Adaptive IT's Solution
The solutions comprised of the following:
MDT Room – An enterprise level full HD Polycom 500 Series was teamed with 2x DICOM compliant LED Screens.
Digital Signage – Based on the success of previous SWFT digital signage installations, the BrightSign Signage Platform was installed. BrightSign’s ultimate reliability and robust OS make it the ideal signage solution within any Healthcare environment.
Presentation Systems – 2x 60″ 4K UHD LED LG Screens were wall mounted at each presentation, each with it’s own BenQ Insta Show Wireless Presentation device. This is a “Plug & Play” solution enabling multiple users to present on any device, no matter the OS or hardware platform.
A Smart AV switching solution was also employed to enable the functionality of the rooms to change depending on the room set up.
We have worked extensively for SWFT in the past and we have been involved at every stage in this new build project. It is very satisfying to have seen the site go from initial sketched drawings to the impressive facility it now is.
The solutions we have supplied reflect the requirement for cutting-edge technology that is high quality and intuitive to help a high number of regular and first time users.Jonathan White
