McLeansboro, IL (July 22, 2020)—With the pandemic still in full swing around the United States, increasing numbers of people are getting COVID-19 tests for the virus. Helping answer the call for that, mobile command center equipment manufacturer Draxxon has introduced a new DX-1000 Advanced Virology Testing Platform truck, outfitted with extensive technology, including a Yamaha Unified Communications’ CS-700 Video Sound Bar, allowing medical personnel working at rapid testing sites to interact with each other inside and outside the unit safely while speeding up setup, operation and data collection.
The AVTP is a multipurpose platform designed to be deployed to the middle of an outbreak or event. Agencies can send healthcare officials to investigate, communicate and mitigate the problem. Once on-site, sample collection and rapid testing can begin within minutes.
The Yamaha CS-700 is integrated into Draxxon’s DX-INTERCHANGE System, which provides video and audio communication between personnel inside and outside the AVTP. Using the unit’s conferencing system at sites where rapid COVID-19 tests are offered, personnel are able to work together in real time while maintaining safe social distancing.
The AVTP features two CS-700 devices; one is installed inside the vehicle, and a second unit is integrated into the vehicle’s rear DX-Outdoor Work Station, which provides medical personnel interacting with the public the same access to information and relevant data provided to personnel working inside. The CS-700 features an adaptive beamforming microphone array for captured conversation even when the vehicle is on and the air conditioning unit is running. Four Yamaha speaker elements provide audio intelligibility and a wide-angle HD camera allows personnel to see each other, including those working 6 feet apart outside the vehicle. As a result, personnel are able to maintain safe, real-time communication and rapid response that’s critical for testing.
