LG Sets Their Sights on Businesses

LG has introduced a series of energy saving LCD and plasma televisions aimed directly at hotels, hospitals, and long term care facilities.

Going to a hotel, even a relatively nice one, can often feel like a trip back in time. Going from a 50” plasma in the home to a 27” standard definition television is a pretty abrupt change. Perhaps even worse, a hospital featuring a clunky old CRT presents patients with the idea that maybe the rest of the equipment isn’t up to snuff.

More than fifty percent of Americans have high definition televisions in their homes. We’re used to that sixteen by nine aspect ratio and a certain amount of video quality. LG’s new line of televisions – aimed directly at hotels and hospitals, packs in a huge amount of features that make them efficient, eco friendly, and easy to set up.

For hotels comes the LG710H series, available in 32,” 37,” and 42” sizes. Each of these televisions sports a 720p resolution and a dynamic contrast ratio of 50,000:1. The LH300C series, on the other hand, offers 1080p and a glossy black finish.

Hospitals and long term care facilities are being shown the HealthView series of TVs, which offers 26” and 32” screens. The HealthView displays won’t blow any minds with their specs, but they do feature the unique ability to be set as Bed1 or Bed2, ensuring that patients are only able to control their own TVs.

Each of the new models also feature a USB cloning tool, which allows settings and programs to be simply copied using a USB storage device.
