LG Business Solutions showed its newest product, SignNET, which simplifies digital signage by integrating all the components necessary to install and operate a digital sign. By integrating hardware, software and services LG is helping to eliminate the complexities of deploying small digital signage networks. SignNET was specifically designed for small to medium businesses (SMBs) seeking a simple and dynamic approach to communicate with their customers and to promote their goods and services in a compelling and differentiated way.

LG's two new videoconferencing system products (models AVS4200 and RVF1000) which allow for live video discussions, as well as 3D projectors, 3D HDTVs, network monitors and electronic whiteboard digital signage solutions are also on display.

Hospitality:

For hoteliers and restaurant owners, LG offers a simple way to enhance the customer experience through an array of digital signage products for high-traffic spaces, such as the lobby and digital menu boards. For these installations, LG offers a variety of signage offerings including its M4224C-BA. A Full 1080p HD picture and an improved high brightness level of 700 cd/m2 pack a solid punch for crisp, clear picture quality. This model also features LAN control, so content can be changed or updated from a remote location, making usage convenient and simple. Additionally, this 42-inch class* monitor features an ultra thin narrow bezel of just .67-inches which allows it to fit effortlessly in almost any environment.

LG's 2 x 2 matrix 60-inch class* plasma is versatile enough for large-scale installations in a hospitality setting, shopping mall, exhibit, or public transportation venue for information sharing, advertising or broadcasting the latest sports game. Four 60-inch class plasmas create a virtually seamless 120-inch class plasma screen displaying content in Full HD1080p and boasting a 4mm seam size, so viewers can see more of the images on the screen. Its 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, Full HD resolution and a brightness level of 1,500 cd/m2 ensure viewers enjoy a more detail-rich content viewing experience.

Another signage solution for large installations is the 65-inch class* Full HD 1080p model M6503CCBA. Incorporating a crisp resolution with high contrast ratio and brightness, it offers a beautiful picture on the big screen. From bus terminals to hotel registration desks, this monitor makes information sharing easier than ever with the ability to place it in a 5 x 5 video wall matrix that automatically adjusts itself for bezel width to help provide a more seamless picture. Three power saving levels allow for the integrator to customize energy output. 

Corporate:

To increase the efficiency and ease of updating digital signage content, LG created SignNET. This turnkey solution provides templates, content and services making it simple and easy to deploy digital signage in any environment. (See separate news release.)

LG now offers corporate environments unparalleled resources for conducting day-to-day business with user-friendly videoconferencing products. With LG's executive conferencing system, which includes an all-in-one desktop and portable room type products, corporate businesses can now hold face-to-face meetings from anywhere in the world as long as they have an Internet connection. (See separate release).

Additional solutions on display this week include LG's projectors which offer professionals portable tools that provide brighter, crisper, clearer pictures for professional and quality presentations. LG's LED HX300G projector weighs less than two pounds, and is ultra mobile - perfect for business trips. Users can create a truly personalized presentation experience with this model using the USB interface on the projector to play DivX, MP3 and jpeg files. This model is long-lasting and more energy efficient as it uses LED lighting, which in addition to a great picture, helps provide a lamp life of up to 30,000 hours, while standard projectors average closer to 4,000. This increase in lamp life decreases the need for replacement lamps, an energy efficient perk supplemented by lamps that do not use mercury.

LG's first-ever 3D capable projector (model CF3D) offers a fully interactive and immersive viewing experience. With Full HD and an amazing brightness rating of 2,500 ANSI-lumens this projector can create an interactive movie watching experience or enhance a formal business presentation. With a high contrast ratio of 7,000:1 and TruMotion 120Hz for smoother images this projector provides picture quality like that of flat panel HDTV. Incorporating both Dual Engine and 3D Auto Picture Calibration technology, the CF3D offers superb color correction to help ensure images are displayed naturally.
