The "Renaissance Project" at the Toledo Hospital and Toledo Children's Hospital was the largest and most ambitious construction venture in the history of ProMedica Health System, a northwest Ohio not-for-profit health care organization that operates the facilities.
As Toledo Hospital went through the most ambitious construction project in its system’s history, it needed to consider the safety of its staff and patients as it looked to update its legacy Panasonic equipment with a new state-of-the-art digital video surveillance system.
Toledo Hospital decided to stay with Panasonic and selected a matrix system that included three WJ-SX650 mid-range analog matrix switchers, WJ-MPU955A management central processing unit for the matrix systems, and twenty 16-channel WJ-HD316A DVRs. The system ties together more than 160 PTZ dome Panasonic cameras, monitors and displays.
Toledo Hospital has found that over the 26 years of use, its Panasonic equipment maintained the same level of performance. It was serviceable, and it still delivered high image quality. The new system came online without missing a beat or losing monitoring capability by keeping the old command center operational during the transition to the new one.
