UTMC Digital Signage Network
In 2008 The University of Toledo acquired the Medical Universities of Ohio and created the University of Toledo Medical Center, a first-class hospital bring first-class physicians and students together to offer world-class care in a world-class facility. A signage network had been set up previously but was experiencing problems with management and uptime. Wide Area Media started out replacing the signage infrastructure and soon tripled the number of displays. Today, the video signage network at UTMC delivers content for a variety of internal marketing, donor appreciation, waiting room engagement and patient television. Wide Area Media continues to expand the UTMC video network into the future.
American Greetings Enterprise Video Network
When American Greetings called us in 2006 to pilot a local streaming infrastructure, we listened to their needs and entered a consulting relationship that has continued to this day. Initially serving corporate communications on-demand videos, Wide Area Media helps American Greetings get their corporate communications out using the Internet as well as their Enterprise infrastructure. Live and on-demand video is becoming an increasingly important part of their internal communications and Wide Area Media continues to support and serve.
Cuyahoga County Grand Jury Video Testimony
When Cuyahoga County was seeking to increase the efficiency and reduce costs in their court system, Wide Area Media worked with over 15 municipalities and the Courts to provide hardware and software allowing Grand Jury witness testimony from police officers to be given from municipal police stations removing the need for long trips across Cuyahoga County to give minutes of testimony. The Grand Jury testimony system is now one of the most used video applications in Cuyahoga County. Wide Area Media continues to work with Cuyahoga County and the courts system providing service, support and implementation.
Premier West Bank Video Training
Premier West Bank, a growing local bank in Medford Oregon was experiencing so much growth they needed to quickly train their employees as far south as Red Bluff California and as far North as Roseburg Oregon. Wide Area Media arrived in Medford and drove up and down Interstate 5 assembling a series of video conferencing carts and training users in each location to transmit and receive multi-point training to all locations simultaneously. Wide Area Media then sat down with Premier West and outlined a future plan making it simple for them to grow and add endpoints without incurring further travel costs
