Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (UHB) required to implement a camera, recording and streaming system within the newly opened medical education skills suite at the University Hospital of Wales.
The new suite consists of a 4-bedded simulated ward, clinical skills room, teaching room, student briefing area, and control room and cSkills was chosen as the solution to provide live streaming and de-briefing facilities within these areas.
The main requirements of the project included:
Working with the main building contractor and the UHB project management and IT teams, we specified the required power and data cabling which would be required to meet the client’s requirements prior to installation, and provided first fix cabling and bracketry installation during the main build process ensuring a clean finish
Below is a summary of the key simulation and training areas:
The system in place now provides a flexible and easy way to record, view live, and playback to aid in simulation and training throughout the medical education skills suite. Various camera groups (up to 4 cameras or streams) where set up initially for each room, the streams of which can be viewed in full screen or a quad split.
cSkills is an IP based system, so changing or adding to the streams that are available within a group is a straightforward process. This provides a great degree of future proofing and flexibility allowing the system to adapt and change as the needs of the suite evolve.
