Anevia Hospitality Equips Australian Cancer Centre

News Image
Anevia Hospitality has announced that Australian cancer treatment and research facility Chris O’Brien Lifehouse has deployed its Flamingo suite as part of a new multiscreen project.
Opened on Tuesday, 5 November 2013 in the presence of Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse is a cancer treatment and research facility based in Sydney.
The facility selected Oneview Healthcare, a global provider of technology and patient engagement solutions for the healthcare sector, and Anevia to roll out a cutting-edge infotainment solution.
Anevia and Oneview joined forces to utilise Anevia’s Flamingo MT; a multiscreen transcoder that turns IPTV streams into multiscreen format so that live TV becomes available on tablets.
Using Anevia’s multiscreen technology also meant that the new service would seamlessly adapt to existing Wi-Fi settings and bandwidth constraints. As a result, patients can now access up to 17 live TV channels through 45 Android tablets running on Window 8 Professional.
"Anevia’s multiscreen expertise was crucial in meeting the functional requirements and overcoming the technological challenges at stake...not to mention how impressed we were with the scalability and wealth of innovative features offered by Flamingo MT," says Mark McCloskey, President and Founder of Oneview Healthcare.
Vincent Meddour, Sales Director Hospitality & Corporate at Anevia added: "Multiscreen delivered to the patient bedside: this is a major first for healthcare, and certainly one to inspire many more. We look forward to pioneering multiscreen with more healthcare facilities."
