Carle Foundation Hospital

Over the past several years, Zdi has completed projects for this regional healthcare facility in Urbana, Illinois. The quality of Zdi’s work has created a growing, trusted relationship with this institution. When asked to describe the work done by Zdi, the manager of systems and technology explains:

“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.”

Here are summaries for two of those projects.

Auditorium Upgrade
Zdi was initially selected to provide an audiovisual upgrade to the facility’s auditorium—which contained an antiquated sound equipment, 4:3 projector, and phone system. It needed top-notch equipment for medical presentations, guest speakers, and video teleconferencing. Zdi started with a Cisco C20 Codec for the video conferencing solution. To control the video conferencing and other capabilities, two Crestron touch panels were installed. The first was placed in the presenter’s lectern to manage media presentations, visual aids, and video conferencing. The second panel was installed at the back of the hall, for technician troubleshooting and secondary control.


Executive Boardroom Design
The institution’s newly renovated executive boardroom was the next project for Zdi. The design included these elements, all supported by a Cisco C20 Codec:

  • one 28-foot-long board room table with 10 tabletop microphones
  • one lectern
  • one lavaliere and one baton microphone
  • two 50-inch Sharp LCD televisions (mounted on either side of the table)
  • laptop ports for VGA, HDMI, and USB
  • one Blu-ray player
