Hospital ships set sail with digital signage
NEC Display Solutions of America has donated more than 2,000 displays to Mercy Ships, a faith-based organization that performs surgeries on hospital ships. NEC will provide a variety of displays including video walls and touchscreens, according to a press release.
Mercy Ships will use the displays to provide information for both patients and doctors. The displays will include digital signage, desktop screens, touchscreen displays and more. NEC is working with Four Winds Interactive and Peerless-AV to deliver the solutions.
"NEC has really gone beyond the call of duty with its gift, and as a result of like-minded companies, we are able to bring state of the art healthcare to parts of the world that need it most," Bobby Baker, head of corporate relations at Mercy Ships, said in the release. "We're all about bringing dignity to people and giving others the opportunity to contribute in meaningful ways. When you can restore sight to a child with a 15-minute cataract removal surgery, it’s a powerful thing. Our donors make this possible."
