LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/10/12 -- (Consumer Electronics Show) -- TVR Communications (TVRC) announced today its partnership with Silicon Valley-based Tely Labs, Inc. Tely Labs is the maker of the award-winning telyHD video calling system, which makes its public debut at the CES show today.
With the partnership, TVRC will expand its patient interactive services to now include in-room video calling -- using the popular Skype service over television -- via the telyHD video calling system. A powerful, all-in-one solution, telyHD provides friends and family the ability to connect face-to-face with patients from any Skype-enabled device. TVRC will first deploy the telyHD video calling solution in hospital newborn facilities, so proud new parents can instantly introduce their newborns to loved ones anywhere in the world.
"We are very excited about our partnership with Tely Labs and what it means for our clients," said Frank Forte, VP of Business Development for TVRC. "We can now offer a high-definition video calling solution which will greatly enhance both the patient-care experience and their overall well-being. telyHD video calling allows patients to interact with anyone, anytime, anywhere, which enables patients a new way to communicate with those who matter most."
Designed to allow consumers to experience free Skype video calling with the bonus of big-screen impact and high-definition clarity, telyHD brings the experience of how people connect and communicate to a new level. Unlike traditional computer-based web cameras, telyHD is designed to accommodate entire rooms, with a wide-angle camera that zooms, pans and tilts to capture a room and all its participants. In hospital rooms, telyHD gives patients the ability to connect face-to-face with family and friends worldwide -- in an easy, natural and more social way. Anyone on Skype can receive the telyHD video call, whether using Skype on a computer, tablet or smartphone, and can enjoy the improved telyHD video regardless of whether they have their own telyHD system.
"We are extremely pleased that one of telyHD's first partnerships is with TVRC, a pioneer in interactive patient care technology," said Sreekanth Ravi, CEO of Tely Labs. "Beyond the consumer living room, the hospital room is exactly the type of setting in which telyHD can showcase the power of video calling and the ways in which it can enhance the lives of those using it."
