Technology for Health Sciences and Healthcare Spaces
Well-designed AV systems make it possible to present high quality audio and video in spaces that require effective information sharing. For health sciences and healthcare environments, the highest demands are placed on the signal integrity, image quality, data security, and reliability of each part of the signal chain. Extron-engineered solutions play a crucial role in these spaces, including operating suites, simulation labs, observation rooms, and surgical education centers. AV system designers can select from our vast range of technologies to create ideal solutions for hospitals, medical universities, and other health sciences or healthcare facilities.

An Expandable Technology Ecosystem
Introducing Extron products into health sciences and healthcare spaces creates an interactive ecosystem between user and technology. Our control, signal distribution, lecture capture, and signal processing solutions work hand-in-hand with LMS, human patient simulators, medical equipment, and capture and debriefing systems to create a productive, seamless user experience. And as your technological infrastructure expands, your Extron system expands along with it. Our Pro AV over IP solutions make augmenting your signal distribution system a hassle-free process, without adding operational complexity.
When AV is incorporated in critical environments, the integrity of even the smallest of details must be maintained. Whether collating live cameras and patient data on a single screen for a surgeon in an operating room, simultaneously presenting surgical cameras, patient charts, and vital signs on a multi-screen videowall in an observation room, or distributing content facility wide in a medical university, Extron has products to fit the application.
For nearly 30 years, we have been engineering products that deliver uncompromising image quality and performance. Extron engineers have crafted switching, signal distribution, and image processing technologies that set the industry benchmark for visual performance. As a result, we have become an industry leader in image handling, designing best-in-class products renowned for their quality, reliability, and ease of use.
Extron understands that protecting patient data is a priority of any system that is HIPAA or PIPEDA compliant. As more and more customers specify networked AV systems, they look to us to provide solutions that are as secure as possible. That’s why at Extron, security is never an afterthought. Our products are secure by design, and we are steadfastly committed to making our hardware and software technologies the most secure in the industry. We focus on security in the same way we do other technologies, always pursuing improvement and innovation.
Control and Automation
Our AV system control and automation solutions are scalable to support systems of any size and complexity. Our thoughtfully designed and intuitive interfaces take the guesswork out of AV control. They enable users to walk into an environment and easily manage source equipment, displays, and any other controllable device in the space. Extron Room Scheduling, occupancy sensors, and automation systems work in the background to prepare a room by turning on lights, lowering shades, and powering up presentation systems. When the meeting is done, users can simply walk out of the room, knowing that the same automations work in reverse and even alert the maintenance crew that the room needs cleaning.
Collaboration and UC Integration
Organizations are continually rethinking how to best leverage space and technology to enable their workforce to collaborate. Today's collaborators expect to be able to work together in small groups, participate in conference calls, connect via video chat, and share content from their laptop, tablet, or phone. These expectations remain the same for offsite users as well as local users.
Extron collaboration technology supports workspaces by creating environments that are easy to use, schedule, and manage remotely. In addition, we have the system design expertise, customer support, and enterprise software solutions to help ensure their effectiveness. Whether a large conference room, a training room, or small huddle space, Extron provides the right communication and collaboration technologies to streamline and enhance information sharing.
Extron Technologies for Healthcare Systems
Many of our AV switching, distribution, processing, and control products are certified for use in highly secure government environments, and that same level of information integrity applies equally to Healthcare installations. Below are just some of the products that are in use in medical environments around the world.
