New Digital Signage Tools Augment Hospital Display Applications
ORLANDO, Feb. 25, 2008 - Bringing advanced display technologies to the healthcare industry, LG Electronics unveiled its complete line of LCD HDTVs, monitors and digital signage solutions that enhance the overall experience for doctors and patients. These specially designed products were introduced at the 2008 HIMSS Conference and Exhibition (Booth #834).
“Patient satisfaction is a top priority for hospitals, and new technologies are critical to delivering a superior environment for work and recuperation,” said Tim Wright, director of LG Healthcare Commercial Products, LG Electronics USA, Inc.
“For example, with features such as UL Hospital Grade certification and built-in pillow speaker ports,” he said, “LG is helping hospitals eliminate old, bulky CRTs with cable boxes and replace them with stylish HDTVs that provide patients with more of a home-like feel and secure access to high-def programming for the first time.”
HDTV Digital Displays
Ranging in class sizes from 26- to 42- inch, these UL listed hospital grade LCDs provide in-room comfort for patients, including a built-in pillow speaker port that provides the option for a pillow speaker to be connected for patient control of volume and channels.
The LH1 series are the first hospital grade LCDs to incorporate the Pro:Idiom™ digital rights management system into in-room applications for the healthcare industry. This technology provides rapid deployment of secure HD Video-on Demand (VOD) and Pay-Per-View (PPV) content for patient rooms, lobbies and waiting rooms. The new LCDs also include LG’s exclusive MPI™ interface for integrating a host of interactive services.
Key features include:
26LH1DC1 & 32LH1DC1 LCD Widescreen HDTV (Sizes: 26- and 32-inch class*)
