LG used ISE 2017 to showcase its advanced business-to-business digital signage solutions, including its Flexible Open Frame OLED, In-Glass Wallpaper OLED and Ultra Stretch LCD signage solutions for the advertising, interactive video art, education and hospitality sectors.
LG’s stand featured a Flexible Open Frame OLED signage display, the benefit of OLED being that the technology allows screens to emit light without the need of backlighting. LG’s next generation Flexible Open Frame OLED signage allows customers to change the curvature of their installations in either landscape or portrait modes. The curvature of the screen can be changed even after installation, allowing for both convex and concave displays.
Other OLED solutions at ISE included LG’s 65-inch Dual-View Curved Tiling OLED signage, using a display that comprised eight connected double-sided, flexible OLED panels, each panel offering 4K Ultra HD image quality with 3,840 x 2,160 individual pixels. A system on a chip (SoC) and 128GB of internal memory work together to deliver UHD playback without the need for a separate PC or media player.
Designed with dual-sided ultra-slim OLED panels in a glass pane, LG’s In-Glass Wallpaper OLED signage is targeted towards boutiques and art galleries. Available in both standing and hanging versions, the In-Glass Wallpaper OLED solution allows businesses the freedom to utilise signage in their space.
LG also introduced its 65 and 55-inch OLED Video Wall solution in both portrait and landscape formats to meet customers’ specific signage needs. LG’s 1 x 4 OLED Video Wall unit which can be connected with other units to create signs of various configurations, was also on display.
Visitors to LG’s ISE booth couldn’t miss its immersive video wall comprised of 12 55-inch LCD display panels, although the video wall units can be linked together to form even larger commercial displays.
LG also unveiled its split-screen capable 86-inch Ultra Stretch digital solution, ultra-wide 58:9 signage with minimal bezels, capable of displaying up to four simultaneous images. The 86-inch Ultra Stretch solution utilises LG SuperSign media editor software for fast and convenient customisation of images and video content.
LG’s largest 88-inch Ultra Stretch digital signage handles 32:9 aspect ratio images and are split-screen capable. Equivalent to two 49-inch panels connected side-by-side, this display can render fine details and is an ideal signage solution for kiosk displays, financial institutions and dining establishments, among others.
“Our Flexible Open Frame OLED and the Ultra Stretch LCD digital signage products demonstrate the kind of innovative solutions that today’s B2B customers demand,” says Kwon Soon-hwang, head of the Information Display division at the LG Home Entertainment Company. “We will continue to raise the bar in developing new display technologies for European and global customers who rely on the best tools in the industry to help them succeed.”
