Technology for Satellite Surgery-Viewing Locations

Distance learning and telemedicine are becoming increasingly important in academic medical centers. These clients wish to speak with colleagues around the world and to view surgeries in real time. To enable participation from audience members, microphones should be located on the desks. These microphones can be the small, flush-mounted style that can be permanently attached to the desks for security. Loudspeakers can be placed on either side of the projection screen and/or mounted in the ceiling. Electronic annotation devices can be provided to provide the ability to mark over computer or video sources. For rear projection systems, enough space should be given to the projection room to allow for the light path length.
