In 1994, Microsoft presented a video demonstration of life in the future during CES. The video features among other things, health care workers communicating via televised panels at the scene of an accident, in the ambulance on the way to the hospital, and in the hospital itself.
Doctor’s are conferencing in via video to help the paramedics diagnose and guide the treatment of the patient.
Twelve years later the technology is starting to catch up with the vision, but its not coming from Microsoft.
LifeSize Communications offers High Definition Video Communications for Healthcare, Business and even Education purposes too.
They offer Video Conferencing Equipment that is not only in high definition but is life size as well. Imagine going to the hospital for a surgery and having a doctor or a team of doctors opt in to a teleconference to consult, or learn or share ideas about practices and procedures from around the world.
