2015 Digital Signage Portfolio Underscores LG's Leadership in Display Technology and Smart TV

LAS VEGAS/PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics USA introduced its next generation of digital signage products, led by Ultra HD signage displays and an expanded line of displays featuring the commercial version of its award-winning webOS platform.

Customers attending Digital Signage Expo 2015 (LG Booth #1213) will have the opportunity to discover more about LG's business-to-business (B2B) solutions with indoor and outdoor signage and a wide range of commercial applications for airports, quick-service restaurants (QSR), retail, hotels, education and public settings.

"Our customers are at the core of everything we do," said Kimun Paik, B2B senior vice president, LG Electronics USA, which is the exclusive Gold Sponsor of DSE 2015. "As new applications for digital signage emerge and the category continues to grow, it's our customers' input that drives our commitment to delivering superior engineering in a wide range of real-world commercial applications."

Ultra HD Signage Displays

Exemplifying LG's leadership in 4K Ultra HD display technology is LG's largest 2015 digital signage display, the 98-inch class (98.0 inches measured diagonally) 98LS95A, which is designed to delight both customers and end users. It delivers 3840 X 2160 resolution in a 16:9 aspect ratio, displaying vivid images with superior brightness and an incredible level of detail – four times the resolution of 1080p Full HD displays.

LG's In Plane Switching (IPS) LCD panel technology produces accurate and consistent colors from virtually any viewing angle. The 98LS95A, with a bezel width of just 14.6mm, may be mounted in portrait or landscape mode for use in a wide range of commercial applications.

Full HD Displays with "webOS for Signage"

LG's Full HD Displays with webOS for Signage (models 49LS75A and 55LS75A) were designed with customer's needs at the forefront. These models are equipped with a slim bezel that measures 7.4mm, contributing to a sleek and stylish design. Each model also comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and OPS compatibility.

Viewing is available in either landscape or portrait, and the 49-inch class (48.5-inches diagonally) and 55-inch class (54.64-inches diagonally) LS75A series models are equipped with the IP5X Dust-Proof certification, which protects against contaminants and resists dust for better performance and less heat generation.

The webOS display is also equipped with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), which allows the TV to automatically configure a self-diagnosis to check the screen status with a pixel sensor. These features were designed to shorten integration time, reduce maintenance of the displays and allow business owners to focus on what is important for them, their customers.

EcoSmart Features

LG's ENERGY STAR® certified LED signage displays incorporate LG's EcoSmart features, which allow for multiple manual and automatic options for energy conservation and provide an ideal solution for corporate and lodging environments looking to save on energy costs. LG EcoSmart features include:

  •     Dynamic Power Savings: Reduces power consumption and optimizes picture settings
  •     Static Power Savings: Allows the installer to set the preferred power consumption level
  •     Intelligent Sensor: Allows integrators to program the display to respond to the ambient light and automatically reduce brightness, therefore reducing consumption under most circumstances.

LAS VEGAS/PRNewswire/ -- The commercial version of LG Electronics' popular webOS smart TV platform – expanding into more digital signage displays in 2015 – offers a convenient new option for content providers and business owners using LG's Smart Platform Signage solutions.

Optimized for commercial applications, LG's "webOS for Signage" is an all-in-one hardware and software platform. The launch of webOS for Signage builds on the runaway success of the webOS smart TV platform for consumer television. The award-winning webOS approach is widely considered the most intuitive smart TV platform on the market.

"Beyond providing customized and functional solutions for business owners and system integrators, LG's webOS for Signage enables a variety of web-based applications across multiple platforms, including Linux, Android, iOS and Windows, as well as the ability to write applications using HTML 5," said Clark Brown, digital signage vice president for LG Electronics USA.

For 2015, LG's Smart Platform Signage solution running webOS allows system integrators to download useful content and develop customized applications that fit their exact needs.  With webOS, LG's Smart Platform Signage can be updated immediately via a smartphone or tablet. WiFi connectivity eliminates the need for a wired connection or costly network infrastructure.

LG has engaged in new and noteworthy software partnerships to further develop these capabilities and bring cloud-based digital signage to LG digital displays featuring the webOS platform. Examples include partnerships with such leading companies as Signagelive and Ping HD, which have announced customized applications:

  •     Signagelive's low-cost, fully-supported cloud solution that runs on LG's flexible webOS for signage platform eliminates the need for external media players to run and manage digital signage campaigns.
  •     Ping HD has launched EngagePHDTM, an easy-to-use, Web-based design, content management and network monitoring application with support for LG's webOS commercial displays.

"Providing support for the LG webOS display range expands the choice of compatible solutions available to our customers," said Jason Cremins, CEO of Signagelive. "LG's highly regarded reputation in the market place together with our cross-platform capabilities make digital signage technology accessible and affordable for wide-scape commercial use by all market sectors."

Kevin Goldsmith, Director of Digital Media Operations at Ping HD, said, "A market-leading yet simplified solution for software partners like LG's webOS was ideal for EngagePHD. LG's solution was top of mind when we designed our enhanced content management software for low-cost, robust and scalable Digital Signage platforms."

"Among the key benefits to content providers and app developers are the flexibility and ease-of-use of webOS for Signage, meaning faster development and more seamless integration," Brown explained.

"But even more importantly, the webOS platform is a high-performance system-on-a-chip approach with powerful capabilities that can actually reduce the total cost of ownership," said Brown.

Visitors to LG's booth at DSE 2015 (March 11-12, Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall #1213) will be able to experience the LG Smart Platform Signage with webOS.

Mvix, a global provider of turnkey digital signage solutions, has announced that their digital signage systems have been implemented at Domtar Corporation’s 20-acre Johnsonburg Mill. The paper mill, one of the biggest employers in Elk County, Pennsylvania, has equipped its 4 business units with multiple digital signage screens to enhance employee communication and publish HR health, safety, and quality information.

Sterling, VA (PRWEB) - Mvix, a global provider of turnkey digital signage solutions, has announced that their digitals signage systems have been implemented at Domtar Corporation’s 20-acre Johnsonburg Mill. The paper mill, one of the biggest employers in Elk County, Pennsylvania, has equipped its 4 business units with multiple digital signage screens to enhance employee communication and publish HR health, safety, and quality information.

Domtar Corporation is the largest integrated marketer and manufacturer of uncoated freesheet paper in North America and one of the largest in the world. They have 13 pulp and paper mills (9 in the United States and 4 in Canada), with an annual production capacity of approximately 3.4 million tons of uncoated freesheet paper. Domtar, which trades on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges, reported 2014 sales of $5.6 billion.

The Johnsonburg Mill has a 125-year history in Pennsylvania. With 4 business units spanning over 20 acres, the mill has an annual paper production capacity of 369,000 tons and pulp production capacity of 238,000 tonnes. Its 2 paper machines produce business paper for copiers, xerographic, envelopes, and offset printing, as well as commercial printing paper used in such items as financial reports and hardcover books. If you've ever read a Harry Potter book... you thumbed through Johnsonburg paper.

Manufacturing facilities may be the best equipped out of any work environment to reap the benefits of digital signage in the workplace. Employees charged with repeating technical tasks and operating complex machinery do not have ready access to the traditional mediums of phone and email service. This required Domtar’s Johnsonburg Mill to find a more cost-effective and convenient way to communicate efficiently and effectively with their over 350 employees.

“Safety is a core value here at Domtar,” said Martin Ogden, the IT Manager at Domtar’s Johnsonburg Mill. “Digital signage allows us to reinforce safety information via safety videos and training, safety monitoring, and safety tracking.”

Digital signage for manufacturing plants is an asset. The benefits are wide ranging, from increasing safety awareness to improving plant communications and providing real-time presentation of metrics without relying on regular access to a computer. Displaying such information excites and empowers the workforce to improve productivity.

Martin and his team reviewed between 15-20 vendors before selecting Mvix. “Mvix was a no-brainer,” Martin added. “Their solution was low cost, and offered a lot of flexibility with regards to remote management.” Mvix trained the Domtar IT team on the digital signage software, XhibitSignage, and they in turn trained about 20 content providers.

XhibitSignage is a multi-user platform, allowing multiple users to have access to the same account. Account administrators can create users and assign highly specialized rights and permissions for each functional level of the network. For example, a user might be given access to a collection of media and playlist, but may be restricted from editing schedules of playback.

“The support we received from the team at Mvix was world-class. They were attentive and very thorough. We couldn’t be happier!” Martin added. “As we continue to expand, Mvix will be our go-to for all of our digital signage needs.”

“Martin and his entire team were great to work with,” said A. Jay, the Mvix Senior Director of Business Relations. “They understand the value of digital signage and have done an outstanding job in leveraging its functionality to the fullest. We are very excited to continue our partnership as they continue to expand and find more uses for our digital signage systems.”

Mvix’s enterprise-level digital signage systems support “set it and forget it” programming. This frees up a lot of time for floor managers and enables them to spend more time on the floor with their plant workers. The software is 100% web-based making it easily accessible, includes free media widgets and free updates and has a very flexible and user friendly scheduling tool built in it, which generates engaging communications.

About Mvix USA

Mvix, based in Sterling, Virginia, was founded in 2005 and has become one of the industry leaders in the field of cloud-based digital signage solutions. With over 11K clients and 33K installations in over 29 countries, Mvix has established itself as a dominant player in the affordable digital signage market.

“Our digital signage systems have powerful dynamic data capabilities which is ideal for manufacturing facilities who need to reinforce communications by visualizing data, “ stated A. Jay. “ Connected and informed employees are well worth the effort!”

Exhibiting in booth 1318, Peerless-AV Executives will also share expertise at Roundtable Discussions

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired) - Peerless-AV®, the leader in innovative audio-visual and digital signage solutions, is excited to be a Presenting Sponsor and exhibitor at the 2015 Digital Signage Expo (DSE) from March 11-12 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Peerless-AV executives will also be leading various roundtable discussions at the expo.

PeerAir™ Pro Wireless AV System powered by HD Flow™ 3 (HDS300): The third generation of Peerless-AV's HD Flow™ Pro Wireless Multimedia Kit, the PeerAir™ Pro Wireless AV System has been upgraded with numerous features to help installers, integrators, and homeowners "Get it Right."

The new system offers the furthest wireless distance of any Wi-Fi-based device -- 210 feet -- vastly improving the versatility of wireless while making it possible to penetrate multiple walls, floors, and ceilings for complete coverage. The PeerAir™ Pro Wireless AV System can multicast Full HD wirelessly to up to six displays in addition to a seventh wired display using a pass-thru port on the transmitter. The PeerAir™ Pro Wireless AV System now has three HDMI inputs while maintaining VGA or Component input, and features a new quick push-button multi-cast configuration set up.

Pico Broadcaster AV (HDS-PB100AV): A digital signage integrator's dream, the Pico Broadcaster AV broadcasts HD content to an unlimited number of DTVs that have an ATSC tuner and over-the-air antenna within a 350 feet (106m) radius. This device accepts content from any HD source via Component or Non-HDCP HDMI outputs, and then broadcasts the signal to any open "white space" channel local to the area.

The Pico Broadcaster AV offers simple plug and play functionality with its standard AV connection and an adjustable power output setting. The system relies on a web-based graphical user interface for ease of configuration along with configurable IP addresses for system control and setup to join any pre-existing network.

Xtreme™ Fully Sealed Displays: Ideal for various digital signage applications, Peerless-AV's Xtreme™ displays are 100% sealed and engineered to endure the outside elements in all seasons.

Relying on a patented Dynamic Thermal Transfer™ system to cool or warm internal components during extreme weather, the Xtreme™ displays remove the need for external filters, vents and exhaust fans. In addition, the patented design completely seals all internal components as well as the cable entry -- protecting the display from rain, sleet, snow, dust, insects and even pressure washing.

Far surpassing ordinary outdoor displays, the Xtreme™ displays have achieved IP68 and NEMA 6 ratings with true ease. The displays are maintenance free, cost-effective, and reliable even in the harshest of conditions.

Thin, bright, and beautiful display delivers 10-touch interaction for retail, hospitality and office collaboration applications

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 10, 2015) - Elo Touch Solutions (Elo), original inventors of the touchscreen, today announced the 7001LT 70-inch interactive digital signage (IDS) platform. The built-for-touch professional display combines an energy-efficient LED HD infrared touchscreen with optional Intel® Core™ i5 computing modules running Microsoft® Windows®. The rugged design of the 7001LT offers system integrators and value-added resellers (VARs) a scalable, high-performance solution that is easy to deploy and maintain in heavy-use, public environments such as airports, office buildings, healthcare facilities, retail stores, railway stations, and shopping malls.

"Our latest generation 70-inch touchscreen digital signage provides higher touch sensitivity and brightness to give 'tablet-like' performance in a giant 70" size. The low profile design integrates beautifully into modern interior designs for retail, office, hospitality, or public space applications," said Craig Witsoe, CEO Elo Touch Solutions. "Unlike consumer TV companies, Elo builds only commercial grade touchscreen products so we are able to deliver uncompromised performance, durability, and aesthetic design at an affordable price point."

Elo interactive digital signage helps retailers sell more in-store through connected brand experiences. Endless-aisle availability, connected fitting room, product education, item customization, and other self-service applications come to life on a digital canvas as big as your imagination. Elo is reinventing point of purchase to embrace new forms of payment, engage shoppers at the point of decision, reward loyalty, and ensure fast service with great looks and some creative innovation. Contactless payments such as Apple Pay™, Google Wallet™ and Samsung Pay™ are supported through an optional NFC accessory module.

Elo @ The Office enhances communications, optimizes collaboration, and boosts productivity as every worldwide meeting becomes face-to-face work space to share ideas and stay connected. Existing software investments are leveraged using open collaboration and unified communications capabilities from a broad array of software providers including Google® and Microsoft®. Unified communications from Avaya®, Cisco®, Polycom®, ShoreTel®, Unify®, and others in addition to conferencing tools such as Cisco WebEx®, Citrix GoToMeeting®, Google® Hangouts™, Microsoft® Lync® and Skype® for Business can easily be used with the Elo 70-inch touch screens. Your data is accessible from the cloud using apps such as Dropbox®, Google Drive®, Microsoft Azure®, One Drive®, Office 365®, Oracle®,®, SAP®, or SharePoint® without having to bring your tablet or your computer to a meeting. Compatibility is maintained for Apple iOS®, Google Android®, Linux® and Windows® environments.

The Elo 7001LT is twice as bright as typical consumer displays or televisions for use in retail and hospitality lighting conditions. 10-touch infrared technology delivers smooth and highly responsive multi-user interaction. A serial interface enables external control via Crestron or AMX audio visual automation systems. Auto-switching between active input sources eases use in meeting rooms.

Elo is demonstrating the 7001LT in Booth #1642 at the Digital Signage Expo 2015 being held 11-12 March 2015 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The Elo 7001LT is available in 30 days with pricing starting at $6,250. In the continental United States, an on-site exchange program is provided at no additional cost during the 3-year warranty period.
