LG Electronics announced it has expanded its line of high-definition television flat-panel sets for patient rooms with its new HealthView series designed specifically for long-term care facilities. The product was showcased this week at the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) Annual Conference and Technical Exhibition in Anaheim, Ca.
With 26- and 32-inch screen class sizes (models 26LH210C and 32LH210C), HealthView is designed to provide a sleek modern look combined with advanced functionally and features such as Bed 1/Bed 2 controllability on a simplified remote control, according to the company. With this option, facilities can now have more than one LG HDTV operating in the same room without conflicting remote control signals. This feature also allows residents to control their own set without the worry and frustration of accidentally adjusting the settings on their neighbor's TV.
HealthView also comes with Speaker Out control for adjustment of external speaker volume. The LH210C series has USB 2.0 Media Host for viewing photos, videos, and more. Compatible with LG's Auto-Sensing Remote Jack Pack (RJP), the LH210C allows residents, visitors and staff to display different sources on the television, such as laptops and MP3 players, from a remotely located input panel. The new series includes LG's EcoSmart technology and is Energy Star 3.0 rated.
HealthView builds on LG's other hospital-grade displays, such as the LG3DCH series. Available in 22-, 26-, and 32-inch class sizes, the LG3DCH series is equipped with LG's Clear Voice II technology and Invisible Speaker System. Clear Voice II lets patients and residents experience a 12-level voice control, enabling adjustment to the voice frequency for clearer sound. This allows patients to hear characters more clearly whether they are listening through the TV's speakers or pillow speaker, according to LG.
