Panasonic – Medical Biology Centre, Queen’s University Belfast
When the dissection room in the Medical Biology Centre at Queen’s University Belfast, next to Belfast City Hospital, opened its doors for the new academic year in September 2015, it did so equipped with 18 Full HD, 65-inch multi-touch LCD
Now, 130 students can watch a live demonstration on the screens, whilst simultaneously following the steps on cadavers positioned adjacent to the displays.
LFB70 series professional displays incorporate intuitive touch screen technology, fully interactive whiteboard functionality and the very latest in wireless connectivity to allow students to work more closely as a team.
Built-in whiteboard software enables students to turn on the display and start work right away, without the need to connect a PC. Up to four people can write at the same time, making notes on almost anything, from video and photos to presentations and PDF documents. Pages can be saved, emailed and shared with anyone who missed the lecture.
In addition to office tools and whiteboard technology, the displays can take feeds from a central teaching island, where the lecturer can switch between a desktop visualiser, ceiling-mounted HD camera, PC and tablet.
Future plans for the dissection room include live-streaming lectures to the University’s internal web infrastructure. Already several companies have approached the University for permission to use the room for courses on surgical specialities.
