LAS VEGAS, March 30, 2017 – Solidifying its leadership role in the digital signage industry, LG Electronics USA Business Solutions is showcasing the industry’s broadest commercial display portfolio at the 2017 Digital Signage Expo (DSE).
LG is expanding its award-winning commercial LG OLED family and introducing all-new Direct View LED displays. LG’s expansive 2017 digital signage portfolio also features the unique 86-inch LG “Ultra Stretch” display, 4K Ultra HD monitors, outdoor signage systems and advanced video wall displays.
Integrators and business customers visiting LG’s DSE booth (Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall #100) will discover how the company’s 2017 digital signage solutions elevate the end-user experience with a wide array of unique and advanced displays for retail stores, restaurants, hotels, airports, schools, churches, sports arenas and more.
“LG is dedicated to providing solutions that help our customers improve their businesses and bottom lines,” said Dan Smith, sales vice president, LG Electronics USA Business Solutions. “As display technology continues to evolve, LG is leading the industry with unique, cutting-edge solutions – like our new LG OLED Wallpaper display – that enhance businesses, streamline content and provide more customer benefits than ever before.”
Innovative Commercial LG OLED Solutions
LG Electronics expanded the award-winning commercial OLED lineup with a number of innovative displays for high-end installations including “Wallpaper,” “In-Glass Wallpaper,” Video Wall and Open Frame LG OLED displays. (See separate news release.) The proprietary LG OLED technology delivers awe-inspiring picture with perfect blacks and incredible color, even from wide viewing angles, unlike any LCD/LED display can deliver.
The new LG OLED displays join the highly acclaimed Dual-View Curved Tiling and Dual-Flat LG OLED displays, available now.
Direct View LED Displays
Exhibiting its strong commitment to the giant-screen video market, LG announced a host of new Indoor Direct View LED display solutions, including 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 mm pixel pitch displays. The new displays, developed by LG Electronics, deliver outstanding color contrast, saturation and brightness levels. The addition of these display solutions bolsters LG’s Direct View LED display portfolio, which now includes both indoor and outdoor options for a variety of installations, including retail spaces, sports stadiums, transportation hubs and hospitality applications. The 1.0 and 1.5 mm pixel pitch displays are available now, and the 2.0 mm pixel pitch display will be available later this year.
Durable Outdoor Solutions
For customers seeking a high-performance LED-backlit LCD flat-panel display designed to withstand nature’s elements, LG launched the 75-inch class XEC3 Outdoor Display, which joins the company’s popular 55-inch class outdoor digital signage model. The XEC3 series features technologies that make it well-suited for delivering messages in outdoor spaces. LG’s unique display technology provides a temperature tolerance of up to 230° Fahrenheit (110° Celsius), which helps alleviate a common problem of screens overheating, affecting picture quality. The XEC3 series also features enhanced thermal management with an environmentally sealed structure for waterproofing and protecting the display from dust and fumes. The three-layer thermal management design prevents overheating and does not require an air filter. The rugged display has a protective 7.5 mm glass panel.
Ultra-Bright Window-Facing Solutions
LG’s portfolio also includes a high-bright Window-Facing Display, model 55XS2B, which is perfectly suited for installation inside the windows of street-facing retail shops. The XS2B series features LG In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel technology to ensure accurate color saturation and contrast at wide-viewing angles, even under high heat and brightness. Unlike conventional panels, the XS2B series also features LG’s Shine Out™ technology, which is designed to deflect ambient light, helping to maintain stellar picture quality even in environments with abundant natural light.
LG will launch a new Window-Facing Display, model 55XS2C, later this year, which features enhanced brightness – up to 2,500 cd/m2 – and an ultra-thin depth of 89 mm, making the XS2C the ultimate screen for outdoor visibility. The display is the perfect choice for any in-window display due to its quiet operation; the display does not have a cooling fan, allowing it to operate under 25dB, which is quieter than a library.
Advanced Video Wall Displays
LG announced a new 49-inch video wall display, model 49VM5C, which complements the acclaimed 55-inch 55VH7B display in redefining the video wall category. The new display has a super-narrow bezel width of 0.9 mm, allowing the displays to be connected seamlessly with each other to create a powerful and impactful image for an immersive experience that’s certain to capture any viewer’s attention.
The LG 49VM5C and 55VH7B video wall displays are ideal for even the most demanding installations due to IPS panel technology that ensures accurate color saturation, even from wide viewing angles, resulting in unparalleled picture quality. Featuring a high-performance system-on-a-chip that works with LG’s “webOS for Signage” smart interactive platform, LG’s flexible video wall displays lower the cost of ownership by eliminating the need for an external player. Lower operating temperatures than other displays reduce energy and heat generated. Each model is lightweight (no more than 20 pounds), which, combined with a slim depth of just 87 mm, allows for easier product installation and maintenance.
4K Ultra HD Signage Displays
Exemplifying leadership in 4K Ultra HD display technology, LG offers the broadest 4K UHD portfolio in the market, featuring two families of products with models ranging from 49- to 98-inches. LG is introducing a new 98-inch class 98LD85D model that both displays native 4K content and upscales non-4K content. It delivers an immersive 4K viewing experience with four times the resolution as comparable full HD displays; and it can even show up to four different images on the screen at the same time.
Another highlight of the LG UHD portfolio is the sleek 86-inch Ultra Stretch Signage display (model 86BH5C), which is perfectly suited for a wide array of installations. This digital signage display measures just over seven feet long, features an amazing 58:9 bar-type display and LG’s Picture-by-Picture technology, which can divide the long, rectangular signage into four seamless screens for landscape or portrait installations.
LG’s 4K UHD portfolio offers a wide array of high-end display solutions perfect for any installation, including offices, hotels, airports, museums, retail spaces and more.
