Hundreds of LG monitors are being used at AWS:reInvent. LG is a titanium sponsor.
“LG’s alliance with Amazon and AWS is a perfect example of our company’s commitment to making Innovation for a Better Business a reality,” said Garry Wicka, head of marketing for LG Electronics USA commercial displays. “By supporting the AWS Re:Invent conference, LG is further solidifying that charge by giving industry decision-makers a hands-on experience so they can truly realize the benefits of this new technology.”

Attendees can visit the AWS hands-on lab throughout the conference, where around 200 LG 24-inch Zero Client Tera 2 V-Series (Model 24CAV37K-B) monitors are on display. The LG Cloud Monitor system utilizes a Teradici PCoIP processor and Amazon WorkSpaces to deliver a solution that broadens integrated computing to offices and classrooms. The virtualization software enables a single server to support more monitors than earlier devices. The PCoIP has no central processing unit or operating system so that there is a lower risk of viruses, spyware and hacking.

“PCoIP Zero Clients creates content via encrypted pixels instead of data ¬for security reasons, and the remote user experience allows for virtual computing,” says Jayesh Shah, Teradici’s Vice President of Product Management.

“LG Zero Client technology helps cut costs and creates a more efficient, fast and secure computing environment, without sacrificing performance, said Wicka. AWS is the perfect complement to LG¹s Zero Client and IPS Monitors, allowing attending end-users to experience a high-quality cloud desktop experience.”

The lab also includes nearly 200 LG IPS Monitors (Model 24MB35P-B) that combine the wide viewing angle capabilities of IPS technology with the picture quality of LED backlighting and ENERGY STAR efficiency. IPS panels minimize image distortion at wide viewing angles and provide high picture quality to offer original image color matching.
