Seamless system allows medical school to go global

Stanford lecture capture technology is user-friendly, far-reaching
University Business, September 2012

At the Stanford University School of Medicine’s new learning center, one system of capturing lectures does it all—from scheduling and recording an event to distribution of audio and video files.

“When you’re training future medical doctors, it’s important to ensure they have all the tools and resources to become the best physicians they can be,’’ says Trent Tanaka, Director of AV Technology at the school.

That was the university’s goal two years ago when it opened the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge, which houses the newest and highest tech classrooms at the school. Each of its 20-plus learning spaces is outfitted with HD cameras and projectors, interconnected by an AV system that reaches throughout the building.

With the Stanford-created MediaFlow system—the winner of AMX’s Innovation and Automation Control Award—event organizers and lecturers don’t have to worry about set-up, archiving or distribution. All they have to do is turn on a microphone. Even better, the end result can be released internationally.

“MediaFlow helps us not only to capture the core medical courses for review, study, or discussion, it also allows any event, presentation, or conference in our spaces to be accessed worldwide,’’ says Tanaka.
