The Sri Aurobindo Institute of Medical Sciences
India - The Sri Aurobindo Institute of Medical Sciences (SAIMS) situated at Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India, recently installed an Allen & Heath ZED-420 4 bus analogue USB mixer in its new state-of-the-art interactive seminar suite.

SAIMS provides a wide range of clinical diagnostic facilities and manages major surgical procedures including open heart surgery, neurology & neurosurgery, and knee & hip joint replacement. The Institute's building is also a teaching facility, housing all clinical and non-clinical departments, lecture theatres, fully-equipped labs, dissection halls, a museum, and a library.

Systems integrator, Audio Cratz, was appointed to fulfill the AV requirements for the new centre, specifying Allen & Heath's ZED-420 in the control room to manage the live audio requirements and also capture stereo recording and video feed from the operations.

The latest addition to the building is the Laser 60-capacity interactive seminar suite, where live operations can be streamed from up to three theatres simultaneously. Doctors demonstrate using endoscopic and conference cameras, and students are able to ask questions during the operation.

"Allen & Heath has always designed great quality audio products and we wanted the best for the new centre, which is one of the top seminar facilities in India. We have successfully conducted a number of interactive sessions following the installation, and the system is proving to be very successful," concluded Dr. Vinod Bhandari, chairman, SAIMS.
