Young hospital patients to benefit from new home cinema system

Young patients in a West Yorkshire hospital are set to benefit from a new home cinema and audio system which has been installed within the location's new family facility.

Harrogate-based home cinema and audio specialist Audio Vogue installed the system – which was funded by the Candlelighters charity – in the Children’s Oncology department at Leeds General Hospital.

The fully-programmable media centre includes a plasma TV and in-wall touch panel, allowing youngsters and their families to enjoy films and music.

Peter Hudspeth, Audio Vogue director, told Harrogate News: “The charity does a fantastic job in raising a significant amount of money, which helps buy equipment, improve facilities and fund staff working in the hospital’s children’s oncology unit.

“The system we have installed is fully-programmable, and, more to the point, is easy for both staff and patients to navigate their way around. Those using the facility, which also includes a kitchen and family dining area, will have the option to watch either Freeview channels or dvds and blu-ray films.”

Mr Hudspeth went on to say that the server is capable of storing “tens of thousands of films, which can then be shared across the ward”.
