PROJECT FACTFILE

• Client: The Medical City • Segment: Healthcare • Location: Manila, Philippines • Distributor: Fil-Nippon Technology Supply, Inc., • System Integrator: NeoTech Asia Distribution Inc. • Task: To install a flexible video switching system with user-friendly control • Solution Highlights: ATEN VM1600, VM7604, VM7804, VM8804, VE810, VE600A

ocated in Metro Manila, The Medical City (TMC) is a tertiary care hospital with over forty years experience in hospital operation and administration. Its world-class healthcare complex serves some 40,000 in-patients and 400,000 out-patients annually. TMC also offers a full range of specialist medical services including the Liver Center and Orthopedic Center. In line with the hospital’s mission to provide high quality healthcare services, TMC embarked on a project to set up a simulation training centre for laparoscopy surgeries. Named CASSTI (Center for Advanced Skills, Simulation and Training Innovation), the centre houses actual units of the laparoscopic machines in the simulation rooms, a lecture theatre, a lounge area, a lobby area, a control room and conference rooms. The layout in the simulation rooms are modelled from real clinics so as to facilitate true-to-life training experience.

Seamless Video Switching

With all these avant-garde medical equipment in place, it is only logical that the hospital also wanted a robust, reliable and flexible video display technology to complement the overall training experience. Hence, the client’s initial brief to system integrator was a flexible video switching system that has the ability to interoperate between HDMI displays and DVI sources, plus, the hospital also wanted full 1080p HD quality. Striving for the best-in-class yet affordable technology, TMC selected Fil-Nippon Technology Supply, Inc., to supply the

necessary ATEN solutions for this project. A key solution will be the ATEN VM1600, a 16×16 Modular matrix switch with seamless switching. Combining two VM7604 (4-port DVI input boards) and two VM7804 (4-port HDMI input boards) with two VM8804 (4-port HDMI output boards), the matrix is used together with eleven VE810 (HDMI Extenders over Dual CAT5e with IR) and six VE600A (DVI Extenders over Dual CAT5e) to support Full HD video over long distances. With the ATEN solution, users can live stream videos with no distortion in video quality. Last but not least, the solution also
