Identification of the Problem

In 2014 the Northern Clinical Simulation had three sites requiring a recording system for debriefing. After some contemplation of the 40k and 15k systems in the market I decided to create a more affordable user friendly solution. One of the challenges we noticed with existing systems is the software posed a barrier for instructors to use. With cost and simplicity the focus I decided to use something that everyone is familiar with using, and is relatively inexpensive. Another challenge was only one technician supported the three sites so remote tech support was a feature we desired.

Unique Idea

A cost effective solution for mobile recording and remote technical support for simulation sessions.
