Christie DWU700-GS

Christie has announced that India’s Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MoHFW) has acquired 49 units of the DWU700-GS 1DLP laser projectors for its National Medical College Network (NMCN). The fleet of GS series projectors will be installed and maintained by Christie’s Indian partner, Yash Technologies.

The projection systems will be deployed at government medical colleges across the country as part of the health ministry’s initiative to interlink its healthcare institutions and create a national task force on telemedicine to address the scarcity of medical professionals in rural India.

A spokesman from Yash Technologies said the MoHFW’s decision to acquire the projectors is in line with its objective of interlinking medical colleges across India with the purpose of e-Education and National Rural Telemedicine Network for e-Healthcare delivery. The representative said: “The Christie GS Series was selected due to its performance, long-life illumination and lower cost of operation. These laser projectors will serve the NMCN well in the years ahead, and help them achieve cost savings in areas such as lamp replacements and maintenance.”

Michael Bosworth, executive director for APAC, enterprise, Christie, commented: “We are honoured that the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare has chosen our GS Series for deployment at its medical colleges across India in an effort to better provide healthcare services through telemedicine. It is gratifying to see that our visual solutions can play an important and meaningful role in the remote diagnosis and treatment of patients in areas where there’s a shortage of medical professionals.”
