Part of the requirement for patient services within Beaumont is to have Beaumont radio at the patient bedside, using Schrack Seconet Visocall IP allowed the radio to be brough across the IP network, where previously it required a completely separate cable infrastructure.
Each bed was also provided with a television with signals being distributed across the IP network offering additional scalable infrastructure savings.
The patient handset allows not only full control of the television and radio systems but also feeds sound to the patient either in handmode or via a headset.A headset jack is provided integrally to the handset.
