Dana-Farber Cancer Institute has once again teamed up with VideoLink to upgrade their ReadyCam® on-site studio with a new HD camera system featuring leading-edge Enhanced IP™ transmission technology. This new system will eliminate the need for dedicated fiber lines and allow Dana-Farber to share the latest cancer treatments and research with audiences around the world via the internet.

The new HD ReadyCam® allows Dana-Farber cancer experts to comment on breaking news stories and share related medical news anywhere in the world without leaving Dana-Farber. The state-of-the-art TV studio and editing facility is conveniently located within Dana-Farber in Boston.

“We are pleased to provide Dana-Farber with an upgraded HD ReadyCam® studio that will allow their staff to quickly and easily share expertise and cutting-edge research over the internet,” says Rich Silton, President and CEO, VideoLink. “Dana-Farber is recognized internationally for first-class cancer care. We are excited to partner again with them to provide reliable access to national and international broadcast networks as well as video production resources.”

“Having the ability to feed live interviews directly to television stations ensures that we can have Dana-Farber physicians and researchers provide their perspective and expertise during the influential first news cycle,” said Steven R. Singer, senior vice president of Communications at Dana-Farber.  “This is critical because there is an ever-growing demand for news analysis, and the rapid pace of television news requires a nearly instantaneous response.”
