LONG BEACH, CALIF. -- The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) presented late-breaking clinical trials and first reports of advances in Cardiovascular medicine to delegates attending the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2010 scientific symposium last week in a never-before-experienced high-definition format, provided by PSAV® Presentation Services. CRF was the first organization in the country to use a massive 150-foot arched screen platform with high-resolution blended imagery support developed by the event-technology provider to present information on a wide range of significant topics in the field of Interventional Cardiology.
"The information that was presented at TCT 2010 will directly affect the way that people with cardiovascular disease are treated in the near future," said Johnnie White, CRF Executive Director, Meetings and Educational Activities. "Through an innovative partnership with PSAV, we were able to develop a multi-media platform that enabled the message from the global medical community to come to life. It was dramatic, impactful and most definitely memorable."
White said this was the first time in history that such technology was made available to the medical meetings industry.
"We couldn't be more pleased with the performance and appearance of the presentation screen, that I formerly nicknamed the 'JW'" he said. "The seamless wall-to-wall video pallet that PSAV designed was outstanding. Using vibrant graphics, HD video and cinema projection devices they were able to bring live surgeries to our audience and present late-breaking trial data in a truly unique and informative way. This event truly changed the way in which medical symposiums will be presented going forward."
Since its inception in 1991, CRF has played a major role in realizing dramatic improvements in the lives of countless numbers of patients by establishing the safe use of new technologies and therapies in interventional cardiovascular medicine. Data presented at TCT is expected to influence the practice of medicine and have an immediate impact on guidelines and patient care.
