Although it’s been nearly 10 years since I graduated college in Chicago, it will forever be one of my favorite cities! Because of my love for the Windy City, I wanted to follow up to Xybix's post from last year: RSNA 2018 - What You Need to Know, See and Do While in Chicago.
With everything to see and do at RSNA 2019, it’s nearly impossible to reach every vendor or remember to ask all the questions that you've thoughtfully prepared. If purchasing Imaging Desks is on your agenda this year, we've put together a handy cheat sheet of vendor locations, functionality aspects, and questions to ask.
Oftentimes, people come to us when they are short on time for their Control Room furniture project. They need furniture and they need it ASAP! Have you thought about what your time frame is?

Whip out that watch of yours and let's talk some project timeline details here.
You’ve scheduled a meeting with your Xybix Representative to discuss new Command Center furniture consoles; here are some recommendations and expectations to ensure you get the most out of your time. Speaking of time, plan to spend an hour to an hour and a half for your initial visit. Including key players such as managers, supervisors, directors, operators, IT, and the architect (if applicable) will help to ensure all concerns and questions are addressed upfront.
Casino floors are like no other place on earth. The flashing lights and winning rings of slot machines. Cocktail servers
all around with smiling faces. The cheers of excitement as someone shouts “red!”
or “black!” Your casino has an energy that can’t be found anywhere else. Because
of all this constant action, you need exceptional security operations.
The recent advancements in technology are astonishing. Cameras can cover every inch of the floor and use facial recognition. Real time text alerts are used to notify staff instantly of a possible threat. It is no secret that constantly upgrading and investing in new technology is a key strategy to keeping your guests and casinos secure and safe.
But what investment is your casino missing?
Healthcare professionals are the ones everyone turns to for life’s ailments, but this doesn’t make them immune to their own health risks.

It’s time to upgrade the consoles/desks in your command and control room. You’ve got the buy in from all the higher-ups and everyone understands the importance of ergonomic height-adjustable consoles. Now what?
Regardless if you work a traditional 9-5 or a 12 hour night shift, its likely you know what hitting the midday wall feels like! Your day probably starts off with a cup of coffee or energy drink, then you're feeling pretty good, and ready to conquer the day. Next, is lunch, hopefully giving you a chance to step away or maybe you're forced to eat at your desk and as the day wears on, it happens… the wall! That drowsy feeling you get every afternoon with several hours left on the clock.
