Have you ever been hospitalized? Most of the time in the hospital is spent in bed. Your means for entertainment and information during your hospitalization may be limited to newspapers, magazines, and paid bedside TV. To reduce the inconvenient lifestyle during hospitalization, the "bedside information terminal" provides services that the patient can enjoy. Not only can you watch TV, you can also surf the Internet, send and receive email, and shop online. It provides an environment similar to living at home.
In 2005, Kameda General Hospital began installing bedside information terminals into each of the 300 rooms in its private room facility, K-Tower. However, there were complaints that the screen was smaller than normal in-home TVs, the picture quality was poor, and the TV could not be watched until the computer was started. As a result, in March 2012, the Contec DIT-1000 bedside information terminal was used to replace the existing terminals. The DIT-1000 is a highly functional information terminal that combines a panel computer featuring a 18.5-inch wide touch-screen LCD with an independent HDTV function. The main feature is that the TV function is completely separate from the computer, so you can watch TV simply by turning on the power without having to wait for the computer to start up.
