NCSBN and its 61 member boards of nursing are involved with many activities that enhance public protection and nursing regulation. NCSBN's current activities, including addressing the nursing shortage, updates on federal and state news related to public protection, and other external and media-related projects require great flexibility in communications. The system that NCSBN decided to install in their new space can allow for virtually any form of interactive presentation, video or audio conference. The Sharp LCD projector can project both sides or any videoconference and or any data or video source on the 7' Draper Signature projection screen with beautiful clarity and brightness. Fixed Elmo videoconferencing cameras in both the front and back of the room capture video for transmission via the Tandberg 6000 videoconference unit. Eighteen AKG gooseneck microphones and three hanging microphone guarantee all participants at the table and podium can be heard locally and on the far side of the videoconference. The Samsung XGA document camera provides speakers and participants the ability to display both documents and objects both locally and to the far side of any videoconference. Other room capabilities include CD, MP3, DVD, VHS, electronic whiteboard, and computer data display. All system components are controlled via a Crestron control system with Isys™ 12" Tilt Touchpanel giving virtually anyone the ability to utilize all the available communication systems in the room with a wonderfully easy user interface. Network access from the system is also available through the many network inputs in the table, podium and system rack.
