When Advanced Medical Transport (AMT) wanted to build a new simulation and training center at its Peoria-based headquarters, the premier provider of emergency and scheduled ambulance services in Central and Western Illinois selected Pearl Technology to provide the new state-of-the-art facilities audiovisual components. Needing cameras that were not only miniature in size but flexible in operation, Pearl Technology, a custom audiovisual integration technology and services company, selected the CV630-IP PTZ and CV503 Miniature Full-HD cameras from Marshall Electronics, a leading manufacturer of broadcast and proAV cameras and equipment.
AMT’s new training facility is equipped with some of the most advanced simulation technology, providing instructors, EMTs and trainees the opportunity to develop and practice physical skills, critical thinking, decision-making, collaboration and communication in a safe yet realistic environment. The new facility also allows for the dedicated recording and playback of all audio and video and can also stream the simulations in a live environment. The space features four spaces, all of which have Marshall cameras, hidden microphones to capture room audio and in-ceiling speakers to allow for paging from the control room back into the small simulation room.
For Jeremy Caldera, Senior Vice President, Audiovisual Solutions, Pearl Technology, the decision to go with Marshall was made based on previous experience. “I selected Marshall because I’ve done other medical simulation facilities over the years using their cameras and the results have been great. The Marshall cameras have always exceeded our expectations with crisp, clear pictures,” says Caldera. “I’m a big fan of their products. The versatility of the miniature and PTZ cameras allows me to have a lot of flexibility in the space. The ability to have multiple control stations with multiple Marshall PTZ controllers helps as well.”
