Wallingford, Conn. and Orlando, FL – February 22, 2011 – Enterprise IP video leader VBrick Systems today announced from the HIMSS11 Annual Conference & Exhibition that it has implemented a streaming IP video system at the Veterans’ Administration Caribbean Healthcare System Medical Center in Puerto Rico. The Medical Center is using VBrick’s award-winning enterprise IP video solution to distribute live and on-demand rich media content over its LAN and WAN to hundreds of patients, employees and visitors.
VBrick’s Enterprise Media System (VEMS), which manages and controls video content throughout the network, and VBrick’s network video appliances, enable the VA to schedule and deliver highly customized rich media content to specific areas of the hospital at select times. This highly automated solution for delivering content to hospital staff and patients not only eliminates the burden on the IT and networking staff to manage video distribution, but ensures that hospital visitors can consume the kind of content—from news to entertainment to information about the hospital and its services—at the time and place most convenient for them.
“Hospitals and healthcare facilities continue to demand a more streamlined and fully integrated system for delivering the rich media content that both informs patients and entertains their visitors, and VBrick has met this demand fully,” said Michael Rubin, Vice President, Marketing VBrick Systems. “We are excited the VA Caribbean Healthcare System is realizing the full potential of this powerful system for delivering rich media communications.”
The Veterans Caribbean Healthcare System purchased four elements of VBrick’s IP Video platform: network video appliances that capture the video stream; set top boxes that play the streams on displays; video-on-demand servers that playback the stored content; and the VBrick Enterprise Media System software that provides a unified portal for accessing live and on-demand media files and managing the end-to-end experience.
