Posted by at 6:06 pm on August 2, 2010

Samsung and TeleHealth Services have announced the availability of two new UL-approved LCD TVs designed specifically for hospitals. The new line of healthcare televisions, the Samsung LCD 458 Series, are designed to integrate hospital-specific features to provide education and entertainment solutions that optimize operational efficiency, promote patient satisfaction and improve sustainability.

“Patients expect more from healthcare facilities and increasingly want access to modern conveniences when they are away from home. Samsung is excited to partner with TeleHealth Services to deliver solutions that help hospitals enhance the patient experience,” said Jonas Tanenbaum, vice president of LCD HDTV marketing at Samsung Electronics America Inc. “These new products demonstrate our continued commitment to bringing premium entertainment experiences to consumers no matter where they are.”

The new LCD TV’s are available in 26 inch and 32 inch sizes. Featuring a full HD display with Wide Color Enhancer technology, the new models deliver superior picture quality through sharp, detailed images and smooth motion. The LCD TVs also include Dolby Digital Plus and bottom firing speakers.

One of the main features of the new LCD TVs is the integration of TeleHealth Services’ proprietary TIGR patient education system, which makes an entire library of educational videos available on-demand in hospital rooms. Educational programs can be accessed at any time, day or night directly from the patient’s bedside using a hospital’s telephone system. In addition, both models offer USB autosensing side inputs and an interchangeable pillow speaker interface. The USB autosensing side inputs enable patients to easily access content, such as music, movies, videos, games and more by allowing patients to connect external entertainment devices to the television via a USB port. Hospitals benefit from the interchangeable pillow speaker interface that enables inter-compatibility between multiple pillow speaker brands and pin sets.

New Operational Efficiency

The new line of healthcare LCD TVs is UL-listed for hospital use and meets the more stringent requirements for use in hospital environments. To assist in the ease of installation, the Samsung healthcare LCD TVs also feature USB cloning technology, making it easy for administrators to quickly customize and deploy the sets across the facility. Combined with TeleHealth’s experience in the healthcare setting and added value services, including TeleHealth’s T.I.P.S. program, hospitals are able to receive the full patient entertainment solution. The new Samsung healthcare LCD TVs also offer a slim form factor to minimize the television’s footprint within the room while still providing entertainment.


Samsung and TeleHealth Services are committed to delivering technologies and products that reduce environmental impact without sacrificing quality or efficiency. The new Samsung healthcare televisions are the most energy efficient sets in the healthcare market when in normal mode, and they also feature four Energy Saving modes that can reduce power consumption by up to 70 percent.
