LG Electronics USA Inc. has introduced its first "Ultra High-Definition" 4K digital signage display, the commercial version of the LG 84-inch-class (84.04 inch diagonal) Ultra HD TV.
The LG 84-inch-class Ultra HD Signage Display is the flagship of LG's 2013 line of LED large-screen monitors that will be demonstrated at this month's Digital Signage Expo 2013. LG said the display boasts four times the screen resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels) of traditional HD displays, and that "the massive display is already attracting attention in the first-ever installation of 4K digital signage at Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport."
The Ultra HD commercial widescreen LED screen provides immersive wide viewing with a high-quality and vivid picture featuring Ultra HD technology with 8 million pixels, the company said. The Ultra HD 2160p display has a bezel width of just 27.9mm, allowing displays to be arranged side-by-side.
"We are extremely proud to bring our award-winning 84-inch class Ultra HD display technology to the commercial market where customers will benefit from interactive applications presented on a such a huge, visually stunning display," said Y.K. Cho, B2B senior vice president, LG Electronics USA, in the announcement.
Visitors to LG's booth at DSE 2013 will have the opportunity to interact with the massive display; however, they may spot the monitors even before arriving in the exhibit hall. The commercial Ultra HD display installation was completed last month at McCarran International Airport.
Two 84-inch class displays with 4K content are featured in a new wayfinding kiosk in McCarran Airport's D Concourse, where nearly 32,000 passengers pass through its 45 gates on a daily basis and either take a tram to Terminal 1 or the new Terminal 3 to collect baggage depending upon the airline on which they arrived.
To help alleviate directional issues, McCarran airport officials opted to add the Ultra HD displays, encased in an 11-foot tall kiosk, to provide a clear signage solution in addition to static overhead signs already in place. The monitor at the top of the kiosk runs a wayfinder application designed by Denver-based digital signage solutions provider Four Winds Interactive.
"The LG Ultra HD display is a welcome addition to our D Concourse rotunda," said Rosemary Vassiliadis, deputy director for the Clark County Department of Aviation, owner-operator of McCarran International Airport. "It has been challenging to communicate to customers the many changes that have taken place around the airport since the opening of Terminal 3, but this incredible new Ultra HD display will help capture people's attention and enable us to get our message across more clearly."
