Deployed by systems integrator 4D Sistem Tic, the Exterity IPTV system facilitates the delivery of educational material to 85 patient rooms, six public areas and 28 staff desktops. Additionally, the system provides in-room entertainment for its patients, including both domestic and foreign TV channels, which plays a significant role in ensuring the comfort of guests by creating a more comfortable environment. The Exterity IP video system also delivers prepared presentations and training videos to enable staff to quickly access medical information when tending to a patient, or refresh their training at their convenience from a desktop computer.
Colin Farquhar, CEO at Exterity, explained: “Today’s patients are tech-savvy and expect to have TV and video in their rooms. At the same time, the care requirements for patients can change very quickly, and hospital staff need to always be aware of the latest procedures and medical breakthroughs. It’s great to be working closely with TOBB ETÜ Hospital to help its staff meet and exceed the needs of its patients using our technology. Being able to deliver both entertainment and training via the same system also showcases the versatility of IP video.”
