Amsterdam, 27th June, 2013 – TP Vision announces a new range of professional TVs targeted at healthcare facilities. The Philips EasySuite and Philips MediaSuite healthcare LED TVs provide features that meet the needs of hospitals, care and nursing homes, and rehabilitation centres with in-patient treatment. They fulfill the special requirements for electronic devices used in medical settings. In addition, the sets are easy to maintain, easy to use TV solutions offering great value for money and low total cost of ownership. Screen sizes start at 55cm (22”) and go up to 140cm (55”) for spacious rooms and communal areas. They will be available in Europe, Middle East and Africa, Russia, Australia and New Zealand from now on.

Dedicated features for healthcare facilities
Philips healthcare TVs are compatible with nurse-call systems to provide convenient access to help in medical emergencies. Patients can be entertained without disturbing others thanks to a special headphone socket that connects to pillow speakers or headphones.

Multi-remote controls for multi-bed rooms
A specific pairing mechanism allows up to 14 Philips remote controls to be used in a room without interfering with each other. This prevents the wrong TV from being switched over in multi-bed rooms.

Easy-to-clean remote control for high hygienic requirements
TP Vision now offers a new wipe-clean remote control for use in healthcare environments, which is an option available for all Philips professional TVs. The white Philips healthcare remote control has an easy-to-clean, non-soiling, smooth surface with seamlessly integrated buttons. The remote is resistant to water and alcohol. Its battery compartment is lockable and it offers a cable attachment slot at the bottom.

Meeting advanced medical requirements
To meet the advanced standards required in medical environments, Philips healthcare TVs feature high-impedance isolation fulfilling the requirement of galvanic isolation for optimal shock proofing. In addition, the sets’ casings are made from fire-resistant materials.

Remote configuration
Philips healthcare TVs’ remote installation features support healthcare organisations by minimizing both initial and on-going running costs for the TVs. This ensures low total cost of ownership. The TV settings can easily be cloned to ensure the consistent setup of all sets in all rooms. This can be done either through cloning, using a USB stick to copy the master settings to each TV, or – even more conveniently – through SmartInstall. This PC-based tool allows remote installation, configuration and channel mapping to be carried out without the need to disturb patients. In addition, installation menu locking prevents patients from unintentionally changing the configuration settings and increasing the need for maintenance.

MyChoice premium TV channel solution
Given the cost pressures in the healthcare sector, return of investment and low cost of ownership are increasingly important. MyChoice is an integrated solution unique to Philips professional TVs that helps organisations to optimise both. Through MyChoice, patients can purchase PIN code protected premium content without the hospital or nursing home incurring any additional infrastructure costs. With MyChoice, they can easily select the TV channels they want to offer their patients as ‘premium channels’. Users can acquire the Pin codes via special kiosks that have proven to be successful in larger facilities or via web-based applications.

Two aesthetic design flavours in black and white
Philips healthcare TVs come in a sleek design with rounded shapes for easy cleaning. All EasySuite and MediaSuite sets are available in black, but the EasySuite models with screen sizes of 61cm (24”) and 66cm (26”) in diagonal are also available in a glossy white finish. Thanks to their advanced LED backlighting technology, the TVs have a slim casing.

Minimising the ecological impact
Thanks to the LED backlit panels in all models, Philips healthcare TVs consume low energy. They carry Energy Label Class A++, A+ or A depending on model and screen size. In standby mode, the sets’ power consumption is less than 0.3W.
