LG Electronics is showcasing its expanded lineup of commercial LED display solutions with its new transparent display; the 72-inch class monitor; its high-brightness outdoor display; new iterations of its video wall systems; and updates to its EzSign TV at this year's InfoComm show in Las Vegas.
"From hotels and restaurants to museums, stadiums and Main Street storefronts, we understand that business owners and venue operators need to engage consumers quickly and effectively to stand out in the marketplace more than ever," said Y.K. Cho, B2B senior vice president, LG Electronics USA, in the announcement. "LG is constantly seeking ways to expand upon its versatile technology portfolio to create more interactive and engaging experiences for consumers. Our LED-backlit displays offer truly cutting-edge and compelling digital display solutions for a wide variety of vertical markets and venues."
The majority of LG's new digital signage models are Full HD 1080p displays with either edge-lit or full back-lit LED configurations,and many models with full LED backlighting incorporate local dimming for lighting control by allowing sections of the LED array located behind the screen to dim or turn off entirely. Also, select models include LG's "Shine Out" technology, a film designed to deflect ambient light. This helps to avoid color wash out or lackluster images by increasing perceived brightness.
Also included on all LED models is LG's In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel technology to help ensure accurate color saturation and contrast at off-angle viewing (both horizontal and vertical), resulting in a display with great picture quality that can be installed at virtually any angle or height. IPS technology also provides a temperature tolerance of up to 230 degrees Fahrenheit (110 degrees Celsius), which helps alleviate a common problem of screens overheating and suffering from permanent picture quality damage.
Select displays include a built-in media player for content distribution. An integrated media player eliminates the need for additional media player peripherals, saving time and expense. In addition, they offer a user-friendly interface through its use of LG's proprietary Web-based management platform, SuperSign Elite-w Lite. This platform allows users to create and run dynamic content using pre-loaded templates and offers quick navigation through menus to control networked displays and simultaneously run media files, such as video, images, audio and flash.
