Sony launches new telehealth camera system at Australian Healthcare Week

25-27 March at the Australian Technology Park at Stand 45

Sony Australia and New Zealand today announced it will officially launch its new telehealth camera system at its stand (number 45) during Australian Healthcare Week from 25-27 Marchat the Australian Technology Park in Eveleigh, New South Wales.


The new Sony telehealth camera system has evolved out of the success of the first Sony telehealth camera system, currently in use at over 270 medical and clinical facilities across Australia. Simple to set up and operate, the camera produces high quality video and audio, enabling unparalleled remote diagnosis and consultation.


The new telehealth camera system from Sony has been designed in close consultation with medical professionals who utilise a range of telehealth systems on a daily basis. The new model incorporates several improved features and benefits.


Main benefits of the new Sony telehealth camera system

·       Security and Privacy

The Sony telehealth camera utilises a proven Sony security network camera that allows only authorised users to access the system. This gives the healthcare professional at the patient’s side total control of the system and ensures privacy.


·       Cost effective and easy to install

As an integrated “all in one” solution, the Sony telehealth camera system greatly reduces installation time and overall cost.


·       Simplicity of use

The Sony telehealth camera system incorporates single button operation, making it easy for healthcare professionals to operate under any conditions. There is no additional training required for healthcare professionals at the patient’s side.


·       Powerful optical zoom and high quality image resolution

The Sony telehealth camera system has a powerful 36x optical zoom that allows the healthcare professional or specialist to easily and efficiently view the area of interest and effectively assist with diagnosis.


·       Versatile integration

The Sony telehealth camera system has been primarily designed to operate as a standalone system. It can also be easily integrated with existing videoconference equipment.


In addition to the new telehealth camera system, the Sony stand at Australian Healthcare Week will also be highlighting the company’s capabilities in mobile and modular healthcare solutions. This includes building vehicles that provide mobile preventive treatments (including mammography, TB and diabetic), mobile specialised treatments (including MRI, PET/CT, surgery, CT and Cath-Lab)and full mobile disaster management (including complete mobile hospitals). Sony will also have its patient touchscreen infotainment solution, on display for visitors to interact with as installed at the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse.


Telehealth is one of the fastest growing areas in healthcare. With its focus on providing medical advice, health and medical education over distance, it plays an important role in critical and emergency healthcare today, especially in remote or rural areas.
