AVer’s cameras were used to help give physicians support Taiwanese athletes during the Olympics. 

A team from Chang Gung Memorial Hospital Medical Team accompanied Taiwanese athletes to Tokyo, with  doctors using AVer’s CAM340+ USB video conferencing camera to transmit live footage of the athletes to other experts in Taiwan.

Back in Taiwan, AVer’s PTZ auto tracking camera technology has enabled frontline medical staff to provide remote medical care during the COVID-19 pandemic.

New Taipei City’s Far Eastern Memorial Hospital is the hospital is dealing with Taiwan’s most severe COVID-19 cases, with rhe Artificial Intelligence Center of the hospital’s Medical Research Department being at the centre of the pandemic. 

Through cooperation with AVer, the hospital has created isolated care. The remote medical staff use the internet to control the camera and clearly view the patient’s physiological symptoms. 

After collecting information, the medical staff put on protective clothing and enter the isolation ward to care for the patient. This setup lets medical staff avoid the trouble of frequently entering the ward and still effectively fight the pandemic in Taiwan.

Cai Yichang, director of the Artificial Intelligence Center of the Far Eastern Memorial Hospital Medical Research Department, says: “AVer’s PTC330 high-precision 30X optical zoom camera clearly captures the various physiological symptoms of our patients.
