Facility:Center for the Future of Surgery
Location: University of San Diego (UCSD), San Diego CA
Challenge: The leadership at the CFS wanted an in-house solution to allow multiple users to simultaneously work on projects, with the ability to also collaborate as a team. The touch-enabled technology had to be highly responsive, while also having the capability to capture video outputs from various medical devices/cameras.
Solution: UCSD – School of Medicine opted for a 3×3 MultiTaction, unlimited touch, interactive video wall. Live video footage can be captured, compared, and analyzed by surgeons and doctors. This setup allows for better instructional and learning techniques in the facility.
The intuitive video wall allows for multiple people to be working simultaneously, while also having the capability to collaborate together. The advanced software solution allows for live data to be cross-referenced with archived data and offers access to online capabilities.
Each of the video wall panels operates on its own, so there is no phantom touching or redundant performances across the system. Since doctors and surgeons are both operating the system, the MultiTaction touch response works with or without medical gloves. The leadership even dubbed this video wall solution as “The Wall Of Knowledge”.
Press and Media Coverage: MultiTaction, the company that manufactures the interactive technology displays, highlighted the project in a recent case study on their website.
The project was also featured in an article on Commercial Integrator magazine, featuring the benefits of this touch sensitive, interactive video wall in a health care education environment.
