Care UK’s luxurious new Oat Hill Mews care home in Leicestershire gets the latest in Smart TV and digital signage technology from Bolton-based TVC Technology Solutions, in time for its recent opening.

Oat Hill Mews is a stunning new development by Care UK, offering the best in assisted living, on-site care, health and wellbeing for residents. Designed as a showcase of Care UK’s portfolio, the Market Harborough venue boasts luxury accommodation, an on-site hair and beauty salon, a dedicated café, an on-site cinema, multiple lounges, and a fully equipped bar.

To complete this high-tech luxury venue, Care UK asked long-term audio, visual and domestic appliance supplier partner, TVC Technology Solutions, to furnish the luxurious bedrooms, resident common areas and cafes with the latest in Smart TV technology. Maintaining the cutting-edge theme, Care UK wanted the latest in digital signage throughout the main areas, enabling them to show various guest information, restaurant menus and entertainment schedules.

With Oat Hill Mews officially opening at the start of 2024, the complete AV and digital signage systems were specified, installed and tested well in advance. Early visitors have already been impressed by the neat, high-tech and luxurious feel of Oat Hill Mews, from the reception area with its HD digital signage, to every bedroom featuring a 43in Smart TV on either articulating or swivel wall brackets, to provide the best viewing experience to its residents.

Heading up the TV-technology, TVC specified its own-brand Mitchell & Brown Smart TVs in 43in screen size for every room. These fully featured Freeview Play catch-up TVs with all of the apps for streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+ and Apple TV, offer Full HD picture quality and are backed by Mitchell & Brown’s UK-based customer help desk. A key factor for Care UK in specifying Mitchell & Brown TVs was the brands famous seven-year warranty on every model in its range, which has enabled it to become Britain’s favourite UK TV brand.

In the reception area, alongside a large Smart TV screen, TVC provided an industry-leading commercial digital signage media player with MySign content management software. The system can be managed by staff at Oat Hill Mews to show a host of information including where residents are situated for their incoming guests, display upcoming trips and events, on-site staff and activities or simply display local weather and current events from around the world.

MySign’s cloud-based software has the functionality for members of staff at Oat Hill Mews and remotely from Care UK’s main offices to easily schedule, modify or update the content with minimal fuss. As a default, time-based templates provide information on meal times, current and five-day weather forecasts.

Comments TVC’s Andy Greaves, Sales Director, “With a longstanding relationship spanning over 15 years with Care UK, the association trusts us to supply, install, and maintain a whole host of audio and visual solutions, alongside small domestic appliances and white goods in both new build properties and their existing homes. Oat Hill Mews is a stand-out luxury care home venue that boasts cutting-edge Smart TV technology for residents alongside the very latest in flexible digital signage in the reception area. We are very proud to be a trusted supplier and partner to Care UK, with Oat Hill Mews giving us the opportunity to deliver a class-leading AV solution for the care home sector.”

Oat Hill Mews celebrated its official opening earlier this year, with Care UK inviting prospective customers to come along and sample the live entertainment, try out the chef’s menus, take a tour of the facilities and join in a range of activities.
