New 32” Patient Room LCD to be UL60065 Annex Q Certified and Compatible with Pillow Speaker Interface
SECAUCUS, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Panasonic Solutions Company, provider of collaboration, information-sharing and decision-support solutions for healthcare, government and commercial enterprises, today announced it will offer a new high definition, 32”, hospital-grade, patient room display later this year. The TH-32LRH30U will be UL 60065 Annex Q certified to ensure hospital safety standards are met for patient and waiting room use. The device is also fully compatible with pillow speaker interface systems, allowing for easy integration with existing in-room patient entertainment systems.
“As hospitals upgrade their in-room entertainment and information systems, they are looking for solutions that improve the customer experience and reduce the total cost of ownership”
.Another benefit of the TH-32LRH30U is that cloning can be done simply with the use of an SD card, allowing for the easy transfer of settings to a large number of units, saving significant time during installation. The displays are also equipped with essential functions for hospital installations, such as initial input/channel/volume and maximum volume setting.
The TH-32LRH30U incorporates the Pro:Idiom® digital rights management system eliminating the need for a separate set-top box to deliver protected HD programming. The display also comes with a Concierge Warranty Program, which provides on-site service and support to enhance its long lifecycle and reliability.
“As hospitals upgrade their in-room entertainment and information systems, they are looking for solutions that improve the customer experience and reduce the total cost of ownership,” said Scott Thie, Director, Healthcare, Panasonic Solutions Company. “The TH-32LRH30U is a visually stunning display that will certainly improve the in-room experience of hospitalized patients. From an operational standpoint, our new display offers a host of features to ease management and a long service life to drive return on investment. It’s an exceptional solution for the healthcare environment.”
The new display features a wide viewing angle of 178º to ensure that guests enjoy clear, easy-to-see images from virtually anywhere in the room. Panasonic’s unique Fine Black Panel also achieves stunning images with deep, rich blacks. The Intelligent Scene Controller produces crisp, easy-to-see images with a high contrast ratio. The units’ C.A.T.S. (Contrast Auto Tracking System) automatically senses the ambient light conditions and adjusts brightness and gradation, ensuring the best possible image contrast while reducing power consumption.
