UNC School of Medicine’s mission is to be the nation’s leading public school of medicine. Located in Chapel Hill, NC, the school is committed to scholarship and the scientific medicine of the present and future. It offers education, research opportunities, and patient care. Its 1,600 faculty members and just over 2,000 staff members rely on the School of Medicine IT to provide personalized and innovative IT solutions that support education, research, and patient care and empower students, faculty, and staff to move forward by integrating technology into their everyday lives.
The customer wanted to upgrade and standardize all AV spaces across the School of Medicine. The system needed to be advanced with reliable technology, easy to use, and integrated throughout the campus. According to Sten Swenson, Director of Academic Technology Services at UNC School of Medicine, the system also had to support the specific applications used by the medical students. “The UNC School of Medicine has a 1:1 ratio of iPads to students, and the apps are highly curated for the medical students’ curriculum,” he said. “It is a challenge to find a system compatible with all of our use cases, but Kramer checked all of the boxes and has been a reliable solution.”
Two of Kramer’s wireless solutions, the VIA GO and VIA Connect PLUS stood out from the pack when the UNC IT team received demonstrations from potential electronics partners.
