Video Explores the iEXCEL at University of Nebraska Medical Center

Yesterday I shared a series of articles about the University of Nebraska’s ambitious project to improve the quality of healthcare education through simulation and advanced visualization technology. Today, take a look at this video that explores the university’s forthcoming Interprofessional Experiential Center for Enduring Learning (iEXCEL) and its home, the Davis Global Center. You’ll see and hear about:

  • The different medical practitioners who will train and learn using iEXCEL technology
  • Design engineers who will work with doctors to create
  • Huddle and collaboration spaces and the holographic theater
  • The Davis Global Center’s ability to reach learners around the world
  • Surgical labs and patient simulators

You’ll also get a quick peek at the visualization labs, including a five-sided laser immersive space, curved 3D CAD wall, and iEXCEL Helix.

AVI-SPL is the integrator for this project, with a track record of successful visualization technology integrations for other schools. Call us at 866-559-8197 or


Reinventing Medical Education With Advanced Visualization

In anticipation of the official November 2018 opening of the Global Center for Advanced Interprofessional Learning at the University of Nebraska, I’m sharing a few articles that have been written about the school’s Interprofessional Experiential Center for Enduring Learning (iEXCEL), which will operate out of the facility. The interprofessional center is meant to improve healthcare by enabling learners to train in a hands-on, safe environment using visualization and simulation technology.

AVI-SPL is the integrator for this project, and playing such an important role continues to be a great source of pride and an example of what is possible with the kinds of technology in which AVI-SPL specializes.

Recent articles about technology in healthcare education have looked at iEXCEL and its mission to reshape the delivery of healthcare education.

In a second post this week, I’ll share a video that the University of Nebraska has created to share its excitement over this program.

Reflecting on AVI-SPL’s Control Room Group at 15

This guest post is written by Brad Herrick, vice president of the AVI-SPL Control Room Group.

The AVI-SPL Control Room Group (CRG) got its start 15 years ago with the Florida Department of Transportation by designing, implementing, and servicing its traffic management center system.

Over the course of those 15 years, CRG has built a team of dedicated professionals focused solely on support of these special systems. It is truly an honor that our customers choose to place their trust in us year over year; we thank them dearly.

Today, the Florida DOT is still our customer, and along the way we’ve provided solutions to other customers’ critical missions — whether for a utility that powers our country’s most critical infrastructure, protecting financial institutions from security and cyber threats, mission support for military operations, or public emergency management.

CRG has grown to become a noted leader in control room integrations, service, and thought leadership, with just a few examples below:

We are on pace for record-breaking revenue for the third year in a row. That kind of growth happens when you give customers the quality they expect and deserve. So that we can continue to grow and better serve our customers, we are recruiting top talent, along with staying on the cutting edge of industry trends like Direct View LED, digital KVM, CAVE, virtual reality and proactive service solutions like AVI-SPL’s Unify ME™ Symphony platform.

5 Ideas for Display Technology in Higher Education

In this AVI-SPL eBook, created in consultation with Christie Digital, we look at five uses for advanced display technology in the university setting, and why each one matters. The benefits this illustrated paper explores include:

  • Building a student community
  • Research and innovation
  • Collaborative and interactive learning
  • Development of job skills
  • Sharing eye-catching visuals

We also offer advice on what to consider and look for when purchasing display technology for your higher education campus. And we link to our recent webinar with Christie on display technology for higher ed, with plenty of real-world examples for inspiration.
