RALEIGH, N.C., Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --TeleHealth Services, the nation's
leading provider of hospital televisions and interactive patient engagement
solutions, today announced the launch of the new line of UL approved and
ENERGY STAR^® 5.3 certified Samsung LED healthcare televisions. The new
hospital televisions provide a full-array LED backlight, a more compact
cabinet, industry leading energy savings, and enhanced multi-set management
capabilities. Available October 2012, the new healthcare LED televisions
combine the traditional hospital-specific features with new enhancements that
promote patient satisfaction, optimize operational efficiency, and improve
sustainability.

The new Samsung hospital LED televisions bring the comforts of home to the
hospital room, while offering advanced technology that supports facilities'
communication and patient engagement initiatives. "The patient experience is a
growing opportunity for hospitals and patients that are expecting more from
healthcare facilities and increasingly want access to modern conveniences in
the inpatient setting. We are excited to evolve our partnership with Samsung
to deliver LED hospital televisions to enhance patient satisfaction efforts,"
said George Fleming, president and CEO of TeleHealth Services. "These new
healthcare televisions demonstrate our continued commitment to bringing
premium patient television solutions to hospitals across the country."

Superior Entertainment Experience
Samsung and TeleHealth Services have partnered to deliver an at-home
entertainment experience to the hospital setting with these new 26, 32, and
40-inch healthcare LED televisions. Featuring a full-array LED backlight, the
new models deliver superior picture quality through sharp, detailed images and
smooth motion. The full-array configuration provides a brighter experience,
better black levels, and picture uniformity versus edge-lit hospital LEDs.

Outstanding Operational Efficiency
The Samsung healthcare LED televisions offer a number of key features that
improve operational efficiency. The new line of hospital televisions 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 LED TVs also feature multiple cloning options and SIRCH^®(Samsung
Interactive Remote Control for Hospitality).  SIRCH streamlines implementation
of new technology and updates across all hospital televisions, including in
room set-up, TV programming, and firmware update deployment. This allows for
easier day-to-day changes to business operations, saving time and labor costs.

Another differentiating feature of the new Samsung hospital televisions is
REACH^® (Remote Enhanced Active Control for Hospitality). The REACH
coaxial-based solution is designed to provide centralized TV controls, basic
static content management capabilities, and Interactive Program Guide (IPG)
for hospitals. Hospitals can now deliver pictures and content to patient rooms
such as: emergency information, local information, and other helpful caregiver
convenience options. Additionally, the new Samsung healthcare LED televisions
offer a slimmer cabinet to minimize the television's footprint within the room
while still providing the ultimate entertainment experience.

Sustainability
Samsung and TeleHealth Services have continued their commitment to delivering
technologies and products that reduce environmental impact without sacrificing
quality or efficiency. The new Samsung healthcare televisions are ENERGY
STAR^® 5.3 certified, and are the most energy efficient sets in the healthcare
market. They also feature four energy saving modes that can reduce power
consumption by up to 70 percent.

Other hospital-specific features of the Samsung healthcare televisions
include:

  oPro:Idiom decoding, allowing hospitals to provide patients with a wide
    variety of high-definition channels.
  oUL Listing to meet the more stringent requirements for the use in a
    hospital environment.
  oUniversal pillow speaker interface for cross compatibility between
    multiple pillow speaker brands and pin sets.
  oAutosensing side inputs to allow patients access to external content
    sources.
  oSamsung's on-site warranty program.

"Television technology is evolving faster now than it ever has, likewise
health reform is changing healthcare at a rapid pace. Considering the patient
televisions' vast benefits around enhancing the patient experience, creating
operational efficiencies, and aiding in the recovery process, the launch of
these LED sets comes at a great time to help hospitals meet these
initiatives," continued Fleming. "The new features blended with the
reliability of Samsung and the range of sizes available, any facilities
professional can play a pivotal role in making the inpatient experience more
safe, comfortable, and informative."
