The SM@RT project ("Satellite Medical Applications for Regional Terminals") is aimed at developing and deploying a vertical Video Portal system targeted at Scientific Societies, Health Care and Pharmaceutical organizations.
The SM@RT project began as an answer to the Pharmaceutical industry and organization needs:
Moreover, for medical associations and scientific organization it will:
At the end of project, the Videoportal will be a new information mean between the health world and the people.
The project proposes to offer innovative soluctions for information and divulgation issues, required from Pharmaceutical industry. SM@RT provides an effective response to the provision of documentation forms, brochures and publications (the value in the Italian market has gone from 38 M to 103 M and EU market is around 500 M). The main benefit will be in a relevant cost reduction over marketing and information expenditures.
The SM@RT primary network is a satellite-based broadband infrastructure (DVB network) that connects a Service Centre (SC) to end-user nodes called Video Portal Terminals (VPT).
The Service Centre hosts the archive of the multimedia contents and the equipment that controls the whole network and manages the services. The activities performed at the Service Centre are the following:
The final phase of the Pilot project consisted of the deployment of a Service Centre (SC) and a network of Video Portal Terminals (VPT), able to receive the Video Portal standard services, installed at the premises of 8 scientific societies/health organizations participating in the trial phase.
