HCI has released the next generation of their connection television network. This new network features an Android platform – which is just like a tablet; including apps and all, in order to entertain and educate patients, visitors, and staff.

This new network will allow the staff to transfer data from their handheld devices directly to the TV, and will allow them to easily share information. This new network is run on an open platform, welcome to all TV developers.

“The [appropriate] apps are pushed to the TVs from a centralized location, giving the Hospital IT department not only the ability to control content but to seamlessly update firmware on all televisions at once. The televisions also feature built-in WiFi and a whiteboard application designed to share messages with patients on their in-room television.  Other features include MediaCare integration, USB clone, and universal pillow speaker design.”
