Edwards Lifesciences, headquartered in Irvine, California, is a medical technology company specializing in solutions for cardiovascular disease. They are considered a global leader in medical innovations for structural heart disease and monitoring devices that improve patient outcomes and enhance lives.
Following the success of implementing an in-house video production studio at their headquarters, Edwards Lifesciences brought the Fluid Sound team back to integrate the use of a Microsoft Teams Room with their new video production capabilities. This would give the company the ability to conduct offsite interviews with remote employees at any of their global offices, so that both the near end presenter in the local recording studio and the far end participants could be recorded along with various shared content.
Even though Edwards Lifesciences was already using and familiar with Microsoft Teams for internal communications, they wanted to utilize Teams software to create a Microsoft Teams Room with video conferencing capabilities. This would give them the ability to host and record offsite interviews with remote workers and far end participants.
A Crestron Flex unified communications engine and touch screen was added to the company’s existing video production system, which allowed video conferences and shared content to be recorded. The Crestron unified communications system did not require any additional or expensive control system programming, which is typically seen with larger video conferencing systems.
A NewTek NC1 I/O module was also added to expand the video inputs available to record into the NewTek TriCaster TC1’s main video production console. Seeing that that the expansion module also has the ability to output any content available from the main video production console, far end participants in conference calls can have a wide array of video content shared with them.
