Named by the National Association of Broadcasters as the “Official Commercial Display Partner of the 2023 NAB Show,” LG Business Solutions USA previewed the broad array of advanced broadcast production innovations to be showcased at the global broadcast, media and entertainment industry event. 

At the heart of LG’s booth (C6025) will be impactful Virtual Production (VP) and Extended Reality (XR) stages anchored by large dvLED displays. Visitors also will learn about the advantages of OLED technology, especially OLED Pro displays built on LG’s Emmy Award-winning OLED reference monitor technology.

The XR DVLED Stage will demonstrate 1.5mm dvLED technology with the strength and design resiliency of a rental-style product, which attendees can experience through a 20-foot-wide, 11-foot-tall 4K Ultra HD display. It is built with the new “LG MAGNIT” dvLED tiles (model LBAG015) which are specifically designed for on-camera use in virtual production, extended reality and broadcast environments. 

LG’s chip-on-board (COB) LED technology provides a robust and physically resilient background display, and its rental style frame offers flexible, non-permanent installation options. With the added strength and simplified installation, this dvLED offering is specifically designed to live up to the demanding needs of production studios, according to Jeff Cohen, director of broadcast and virtual production, LG Business Solutions USA.
