Currently, there are 11 sites in the telemedicine (a.k.a. REACH-TV) network, which comprises heterogeneous communications links, including full and fractional T-1 (1.54 Mbps) and ISDN, which is typically aggregated at 3 BRI (384 kbps). Higher bandwidth paths are available via the University's North Carolina Research and Education Network (NC-REN)/Internet 2 connection and North Carolina Information Highway (NCIH) and satellite (receive only) connectivity. All major videoconferencing standards are deployed at different parts of the network, including H.320, H.323, and MPEG (1 and 2).

Bridging/transcoding between the different standards is possible via multipoint conference units and audiovisual routers. Also, the Center has extensive connectivity within the medical campus, both via the LAN's as well as baseband audio and video connections to many of the conference rooms. The same network that is used for telehealth is also for administrative meetings, continuing education and training, e.g. seminars, grand rounds, and lectures.

Telemedicine Suite

The Telemedicine Center's consultation suite in the Brody Building has four tele-consultation booths that are used to receive telemedicine examinations. Each booth is connected to the videoconferencing bridge and can be switched to any site in the network. The booths are outfitted with a video camera, two video monitors, microphone, speakers, and an electronic stethoscope receiver. Each booth also has a computer workstation that the consulting physician can use to access the electronic medical record.


A remote/rural site usually has both a clinical telemedicine (examination) room and tele-classroom that can use the videoconferencing network, although not simultaneously. Typically, the telemedicine examination room is equipped with a general view camera, video otoscope (ear exam), video dermatoscope (skin exam), and electronic stethoscope. Auxiliary video inputs allow other instruments with video output, such as ultrasound machines to transmit video over the network.
