Our Metropolitan Building Simulation Rooms ("Safe Hospital") are equipped with two Logitech C930e webcams ($85 each), Active USB extension cables, and Dell Optiplex 3010 and 7100 desktop computers which were in our existing inventory (no additional cost). The cameras are currently wall-mounted with options for ceiling mount should faculty prefer. Total cost per room, assuming computers were to be purchased and Kaltura was already available, is approximately $1,200.
There is a similar setup in our Anesthesia Simulation space and also a simple "mobile cart" with a desktop and single webcam for use anywhere in the building.
Our Davenport Hall NP Simulation Rooms are equipped with a single Vaddio ConferenceSHOT AV bundle (USB camera with separate ceiling microphone, $2,700 each), Active USB extension cables, Dell laptops (from existing inventory) and (pending installation) wall-mounted PTZ controls. In Davenport we will also have three mobile carts with 65" Sony TVs ($1,550 each), Vaddio HuddleSHOT cameras ($1,370 each). Total cost per mobile cart was $3,900.
