Independa Licenses Video Conferencing Technologies to LG
SAN DIEGO–Remote engagement and care pioneer Independa has licensed video conferencing technologies to LG Business Solutions USA for use with commercial TVs and digital signage displays.
The worldwide agreement between LG Electronics and Independa – global leaders in commercial televisions and remote engagement technologies, respectively – is expected to transform how organizations and people engage in video conferencing on commercial displays across a wide range of hospitality and health care applications.
“Building on our long-standing strategic relationship with Independa, this agreement will enable LG to provide a more integrated video conferencing solution and eliminate the need for partners to duplicate costly infrastructure,” said Richard Lewis, Vice President, Research and Technology, LG Business Solutions USA.
“Independa and LG are delivering another industry first,” said Kian Saneii, founder and CEO of Independa. “LG commercial TVs are widely recognized as market leaders in healthcare and hospitality, and this agreement further extends our deep and long-standing partnership with LG. Simplicity and ease of use are key factors in all Independa offerings, and LG partners and customers can now enjoy all the benefits of a simplified, fully integrated video conferencing experience on LG commercial TVs.”
“Our research shows that a large percentage, nearly one-third, of seniors age 65 and over find it appealing to have a video consultation with a doctor directly through their TV,” said Elizabeth Parks, senior vice president at Parks Associates. “TV-enabled video solutions allow access to enhanced care experiences for seniors to stay more independent.”
