The Dalhousie Medical Education Program’s new high definition video conferencing/distance education system links 19 sites at two university campuses and four New Brunswick hospitals. Mandated to provide all students with a comparable learning experience regardless of their location, the program was established in collaboration with the Government of New Brunswick, the University of New Brunswick and the Horizon Health Network.
In line with the consistent architectural look and feel in all connected teaching rooms, the systems feature two-way interactive HD video conferencing, dynamic microphone queuing, programmable lighting, and live host transfer capability, all enabled via software written by Engineering Harmonics.
