“The influential St Marks, a specialist tertiary hospital unit within Northwick Park, use the hall for an annual meeting called Frontiers at which they showcase their latest developments,” explains Alistair Holdoway, managing director of Video South Medical Television.
“They are the UK’s top centre for colorectal procedures and are well known for their research and training. This year, we have installed a complete fibre network transmitting from three endoscopy rooms and two operating theatres in full HD with two way audio. The audience was 160 specialist consultants, who were able to see in greater clarity than ever before what was happening in the theatre.”
“The PT-RZ670 compliments the company’s existing line-up of Solid ShineTM projectors and features 20,000 hours of working life,” comments Panasonic product marketing specialist, Tom Gibson.
“Projectors that don’t have lamps or require filter changes offer significant benefits, reducing the total cost of ownership and maintenance requirement.”
“The shift to laser projection has come at a good time for the NHS,” adds Alistair. “There is a reduced budget for technical support staff, so the fact that it is cheaper to run and has no maintenance burden is a big plus.”
