Provena United Samaritans Medical Center

The Provena Conference room was specifically engineered to enhance communication in meetings and presentations. The boardroom multimedia presentation system includes:

  • Video presentation system
  • Crestron control system
  • 17” wide touch screen
  • Integrated lighting control
  • Overhead document camera
  • Video annotation

The multimedia meeting experience begins with the push of a single button on the touchpanel. The lights dim to a pre-set low lumination for presentation viewing. The projector and screen descends from the ceiling and the hidden equipment rack components are powered up.

A Complete System

The state-of-the-art conference and presentation system has multiple A/V inputs throughout the room, an overhead sound system and wireless boundary microphones used for conferencing. A unique feature above the presenter’s desk is a high resolution document camera, hidden in the ceiling. The media center is a complete presentation solution that integrates conventional A/V controls, PC and desktop conferencing, video displays and annotation.

No PC Required

To simplify and streamline the technology in the Provena conference room, the control panel has touch-panel interaction for control of A/V equipment and runs a Windows XP embedded operating system. An integrated multimedia PC eliminates the need for an additional computer to run presentations and allows direct access to the internet. Users can easily access presentations from USB jump drives (plug and play) or retrieve content from the server via the network. Multiple video windows can be displayed in full motion. All visuals are displayed on the main video projection screen or viewable on an additional 40” LCD flat panel at the rear of the room.
