LAS VEGAS, June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Expanded solution partners for the commercial version of LG Electronics’ popular webOS smart TV platform – “webOS for Signage,” implemented in even more LG commercial displays this year – offers convenient new options for business owners deploying smart digital signage solutions.
Optimized for commercial applications, LG’s webOS for Signage, the all-in-one hardware and software platform built upon the popularity of the webOS smart TV platform for consumer televisions, is bringing a new level of integrated benefits to businesses deploying digital signage displays. LG’s digital signage displays feature a high-performance system-on-a-chip (SoC) which works with LG’s webOS for Signage platform to lower the cost of ownership by eliminating the need for PCs or external media players.
Demonstrated at InfoComm 2016, LG’s integrated SoC running webOS allows system integrators to download useful content and develop customized applications that fit their exact needs. With webOS for Signage, LG’s Smart Platform Signage can be updated simply and quickly via a smartphone or tablet. WiFi connectivity eliminates the need for a wired connection or costly network infrastructure.
“Beyond providing customized and functional solutions for business owners and system integrators, LG’s webOS for Signage now offers business owners a swath of customer experience upgrades, cloud-based solutions, mobile accessibility, screen control, multi-touch solutions with LG’s expanded solution partners,” said Garry Wicka, head of marketing for LG Electronics USA.
New and noteworthy software partnerships are expanding cloud-based digital signage solutions for LG digital displays featuring the webOS platform, as highlighted this week at InfoComm:
- Industry Weapon‘s support of webOS centers on its powerful yet simple digital signage software, CommandCenterHD, built for non-technical users with capabilities that ease the burden of content creation. Poised for launch on LG smart signage displays this fall, the Industry Weapon platform is powerful, managing complex integrations, scheduling and permission requirements for business and government applications.
- Scala is taking its webOS support to the next level by backing innovative new digital signage and customer experience solutions on LG commercial displays powered by webOS.
