Video Integration for Care Homes and how this is now fundamental.
Video communications have been around for a long time now. Many long-distance relationships benefited from early platforms such as Skype. Video conversations have become part of life. They keep couples communicating on long trips. Grandparents can keep up to date with growing grandchildren. Cousins can chat face to face. It’s a now vital part of keeping families and friends together even when they are miles apart. We did for a while there become a bit blasé about it.
And then came COVID-19 and the new world of group conversations. Before it was a great distance that would keep us from talking face to face. Now it is the fear of infecting the people we love with a virus we still don’t understand. Now, even if your loved ones are only around the corner, it feels a world away. We are fortunate to live in a world of video communications and to have the means to make the experience better.
Video Communications for Care Homes
With this in mind, we have looked into many bundled-up solutions for Zoom and Microsoft Teams. Zoom is now the video calling software of choice in many homes. It is for this reason that we choose to offer this out to Care Homes across the country.
The all-in-one D Ten screen is simply connected to mains power, the system then detects any Wi-Fi networks. Once connected to the internet and the Zoom client is launched, it’s ready to go. The touch-enabled screen will enable the user to launch or join the call, via the standard Zoom user-interface.
The onboard 16-microphone array with DSP, and 4K wide-angle camera with digital field of view (120 degrees), will provide the best possible call experience. The D Ten solution is non-intrusive; presented as a single touch screen from 28” to 75”. It is very easy to install onto a wall or mobile kart. No all-in-one offering is as effective, and as easy to use as the D TEN range
Digital Signage for Care Homes
AV integration solutions will now be more popular than ever in care homes across the UK.
Digital signage assists with the daily running of care homes. It plays a pivotal role in helping residents with dementia. The signage can reinforce daily routines throughout the facility.
As an example, small glass trinket cases are outside each resident’s room. These cases hold photos and ornaments so the resident can associate to their room or suite. Digital signage screens can receive regular updates from the family. This means updated photos and images and even video clips.
Digital signage is also a way to manage flow and wayfinding for common areas. They can display activity schedules and menus. The multifunctional signage can also run marketing for the home. When an area or room is vacant, a default promotional video can run.
Perception Integrate supports the entire management system. We offer template creation and run full training on-site enabling staff to update, edit and publish content when needed.
