NEW YORK, NY, April 5, 2010 – Reinforcing its leadership in the rapidly growing telemedicine market, TANDBERG today expanded its award-winning telehealth offerings with the introduction of the new TANDBERG Clinical Presence System (CPS). Available in the U.S. and Canada, the CPS is the first teleconferencing solution designed collaboratively with medical professionals to offer the functionality and flexibility needed for use in medical institutions at the point of care.
With specialists sometimes unavailable in emergency rooms and rural areas, many patients are forced to wait until one can arrive, or have to be transported to a hospital where a specialist is present. This increases costs for patients and hospitals, but more importantly, wastes critical time for the delivery of care. The TANDBERG CPS allows specialists to be instantly available at the point of care via video, helping speed the administration of medicines and life-saving treatments.
"The TANDBERG CPS is the next generation in video communication for point of care," said Andrew W. Davis, senior partner, Wainhouse Research. "TANDBERG again proves they are a driving force in telemedicine – providing the image quality, system dependability, and device interoperability the company is known for. The CPS is a unique industrial design that reflects the specific requirements of medical professionals."
"TANDBERG has long been the leader in connecting doctors to patients through teleconferencing solutions, helping provide instant and accurate care to patients via video," said Joel Brunson, President, Public Sector at TANDBERG. "The introduction of the TANDBERG CPS will help bring video to the forefront of modern medicine by allowing more patients to receive the best possible care even when a specialist is miles away."
Key features of the TANDBERG CPS:
- High definition video quality: A 1080p full high-definition system with PrecisionHD 12x optical zoom camera provide the clearest possible picture and position for maximum field of view
- Optional power configurations: Wireless and rechargeable battery versions of the CPS provide increased mobility and range
- Modular storage options: Multiple optional storage configurations provide medical professionals with the ability to store and transport medical devices, laptops, PCs, keyboards and light sources
- Ruggedized exterior: Tactile membrane control on front panel and disposable splash guards ensure increased sterility and durability needed in telemedicine environments
