  • We need to set up two screens in each site.
  • Surgery image is to be transmitted one way on HD quality, and the discussion is to be performed interactively on H.323.
  • We use IPsec with VPN router to protect patient privacy. This is set up at Kyushu U only and is not necessary to be set up at others.
  • Prepare flat monitors at each station for better quality if available.
