Carle Foundation Hospital


Over the last several years, Zdi has been given the opportunity to work for Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, Illinois.

Zdi was initially sought out to provide an upgrade to the Auditorium, a space utilized for medical presentations, guest speakers, and Video Teleconferencing. Zdi was asked to replace the existing system, which included antiquated sound equipment, 4:3 projector, and phone system.

Zdi replaced the existing system with a Cisco C20 Codec to provide a more adequate video conferencing solution. To control the video conferencing and other capabilities of the room, two Crestron touch panels were installed; one in the presenter’s podium giving them access to showcase powerpoint presentations, other visual aids, and to control the video conferencing system. The other Crestron touch panel was installed in the back of the hall, for technician troubleshooting and control as well.

Later, Zdi was asked to design the video conferencing system for this institution’s newly renovated Executive Board Room. The design consisted of a twenty eight (28) foot long board room table, with (10) ten table top microphones, (1) one podium, (1) one lavaliere  and (1) one baton microphone accompanied by (2) two 50 inch Sharp LCD televisions (one mounted on either side of the table), laptop hook ups for VGA, HDMI, & USB, and blue ray player all supported by a Cisco C20 Codec.

The quality of work done by Zdi in these projects and more, has created a growing relationship and trust with this organization. When asked to describe the work done by Zdi, the Manager of Systems and Technology stated:

“Zdi has done several large projects for us, and has continually exceeded expectations in terms of recommendations, pricing, and quality of installation. We have had large auditorium upgrades, new installations in new space, and piece-by-piece equipment purchases and upgrades. Each time, Zdi’s advice was based on sensible solutions using today’s technologies, their price point was always competitive, and their installation both friendly and timely. I recommend their work highly.”

Zdi, Inc. prides itself on the quality and integrity of our work. As we continue to work with this and other clients, we look to design custom solutions that will meet and exceed their expectations.
