Anevia Hospitality Announces First Multiscreen Deployment in Healthcare


Paris, France – Anevia Hospitality, a leader in video streaming and infrastructure solutions for OTT, live TV and video-on- demand (VoD), has announced that Australian cancer treatment and research facility Chris O’Brien Lifehouse has deployed Anevia’s Flamingo suite as part of a comprehensive multiscreen project.

Opened on Tuesday, 5 November 2013 in the presence of Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse is a world-class cancer treatment and research facility based in Sydney, Australia. For such a modern facility being at the very forefront of technology, allowing patients to stay connected with friends, family, health information, education and live TV via tablet devices is essential for improving patient care and comfort. This is why the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse selected Oneview Healthcare, one of the leading global providers of innovative technology and patient engagement solutions for the healthcare sector and Anevia to roll out a cutting-edge infotainment solution.

As part of a comprehensive multiscreen service platform, Anevia and Oneview Healthcare joined forces to make it happen leveraging Anevia’s Flamingo MT: this easy-to-use, feature-rich multiscreen transcoder turns IPTV streams into multiscreen format so that live TV becomes available on tablets. Using Anevia’s multiscreen technology also meant that the new service would seamlessly adapt to existing Wi-Fi settings and bandwidth constraints. As a result patients can now access up to 17 live TV channels through 45 Android tablets running on Window 8 Professional.

“Anevia’s multiscreen expertise was crucial in meeting the functional requirements and overcoming the technological challenges at stake…not to mention how impressed we were with the scalability and wealth of innovative features offered by Flamingo MT,” says Mark McCloskey, President and Founder of Oneview Healthcare.

Vincent Meddour, Sales Director Hospitality & Corporate at Anevia went on to comment: “Multiscreen delivered to the patient bedside: this is a major first for healthcare, and certainly one to inspire many more. We look forward to pioneering multiscreen with more healthcare facilities.”
