HD TV for Healthcare

Healthcare offices and facilities look to improve patient satisfaction and HCAHPS facility ratings with HD Television solutions that provide patients with a homelike viewing experience. Help give your facility a competitive advantage with access to hundreds of HD channels, thousands of hours of free on-demand content, and the ability to rewind, pause and fast-forward live TV.


Service Delivery

HD TV Services for Healthcare are provided in one of the two following ways:

Distributed Boxes:
A Familiar Setup

HD TV service using set-back boxes resembles the service found in most homes. The boxes—called "set-back" because they are customarily hidden on the back of the tv "set"—provide service by being paired with a television on a one-to-one basis, room by room.



Centralized TV Technology:
The Pro:Idiom Solution

Large facilities can benefit from this type of service because the signal is fed directly into the televisions in each room via a wall cable, simplifying the TV experience and its appearance. The HD signal is fed from a centralized Pro:Idiom encrypted server, housed on-site and customers interact only with the television and a remote, which means no individual boxes to manage.
