Vancouver Coastal Health Hyperbaric Chamber
Commercial Case Study
Product Installed: NetworkHD 400 Series
ABOUT THE INSTALL
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a type of treatment used to speed up healing of many ailments. It involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized environment. In a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber, the air pressure is increased two to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, lungs can gather much more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. For Vancouver Coastal Health, being able to offer this course of treatments is important to their patients in many ways and several scenarios.
Unfortunately, their existing chamber needed modernizing and the delivery of video and audio content was needed to be brought up to speed with the current technology levels. With patients depending on this life saving technology, the goal was to improve the quality of the video and audio being presented to patients, simplify the ability for redirection of video and audio, increase the reliability of distributing the media and allow the video to be interconnected with other devices (e.g. computer based custom software).
With testing and technical input from the team at WyreStorm, the NetworkHD AV over IP solution was chosen. With its 4K HDR video distribution, multichannel audio support, low latency, RS-232, IR and compatibility with the 3rd party control, the NetworkHD 400 Series solution was the perfect fit for this scenario. The final deployment consisted of 11 WyreStorm NetworkHD 400 encoders which were used to distribute High Definition content from cable boxes, computers, and DVD players to 14 NetworkHD decoders, connected to multiple displays over 3 zones.
