You know you’re in the industry when…

I’m potentially in the market for a new vehicle; my car is almost ten years old and while I don’t have any issues (knock on wood), I need to start shopping and researching my next purchase.  So, one snowy Chicago Sunday morning, I tagged along with my brothers and two of my nephews and off we went to the Chicago Auto Show.  It’s one of the largest auto shows, and I figured it would be a great place to start my research.  Boy was I wrong.

While my intention was to look at vehicles, I found myself looking at the signage.  Video walls that stretched for blocks, direct view LEDs that could be seen from everywhere on the show floor, touch displays showing vehicle options, and of course identifying the areas where digital signage would have made for a more engaging experience.  My proudest moment was recognizing the LG signage.  I felt like I’d earned my LG wings.

So while my research on a new vehicle begins again, I can put my mind at ease knowing I’m fully immersed in the industry I joined a short (and quick) two years ago.


How to Install the Bendable, Open-Frame LG OLED Display

We’ve been telling you how LG OLED commercial displays can:

BLEND into the business environment (Wallpaper),

ENHANCE the environment (Wallpaper In-Glass, dual-view curved tiling and dual-view flat displays),

Or BECOME the environment (Open-Frame LG OLED displays).

“Become” the environment? Absolutely.

If you came to the LG booth at CES 2018 you saw Open-Frame LG OLED displays in the spectacular 92-foot-long LG OLED canyon. The canyon was created from 246 55-inch displays, taking 5-1/2 days to build and enhanced with Dolby Atmos surround sound. An unforgettable crowd pleaser.

Just one of the amazing, bendable Open-Frame LG OLED displays can become a centerpiece in your business – rounding out hard corners with breathtaking imagery, conforming to curved structures, leading customers to the sale. Or join it with others to create a never before seen customer experience that could have people coming back.

LG has created a how-to video featuring a single Open-Frame LG OLED display, from unboxing to completed installation.

LG Styler for Clothing Earns ‘asthma & allergy friendly®’ Certification


Spring is right around the corner, and with it can come sniffles, sneezes, watery eyes and consistent coughing to the 70 million Americans suffering from asthma and allergies*. Just in time to combat these symptoms, the LG Styler steam clothing care system has earned the asthma and allergy friendly® certification from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) for its superior performance in ridding fabrics of allergens. It’s the first clothing care system of its kind to receive the certification.

“Our team of health experts constantly evaluates products that truly make a difference for allergy and asthma sufferers,” said AAFA Certification Program Director Michele Cassalia. “LG Styler is proven to help remove allergens from clothing, bedding, toys and more, thanks to LG’s unique steam technology.”

And there’s more than allergen reduction. LG’s innovative TrueSteam® technology uses only pure water, no chemical additives, to gently refresh and help sanitize everyday fabrics and items that are difficult or impossible to wash, and reduces odors that cling to fabrics, knitwear and delicates. The Styler also includes a special compartment in the door that helps restore the crease in pants while reducing wrinkles.

Since its introduction in 2016, business owners and executives have used an LG Styler in their office to keep their attire looking great for meetings and presentations, and to help remove the smell of last night’s client dinner. Because the Styler doesn’t require plumbing connections and doesn’t need to be professionally installed, it can be added to any space. They’re right at home as a luxury amenity in premium hotel suites, spas and salons. The Styler uses little floor space and its minimalist design adds visual appeal to any décor.

If you haven’t seen the LG Styler, you really should. It’s innovative, effective and certainly nothing to sneeze at.

LG & Cisco Team Up to Create Turnkey Videoconferencing Solutions

What’s it like preparing for a videoconference at your business?

Is it a smooth, seamless process that automatically sets the technology at your service as soon you enter the room? Is the video quality stunningly realistic?

Or do you have to start from scratch every time, locating plugs and remote controls, pushing a number of buttons and maybe figuring out why a particular component isn’t working properly?

If it’s the latter, as we’ve often seen, we have very good news that can make your videoconferences, meetings, presentations, content delivery and room/device integrations a lot simpler, and smarter.

LG has teamed up with Cisco to create a seamless integration between the industry-leading Cisco Spark Room Kit Series and LG Commercial UHD Displays to transform the experience from complicated to conversational.

Cisco Spark Room Kits are powerful collaboration solutions that integrate with select LG commercial displays to bring more intelligence and usability to your small to medium-sized meeting rooms – whether registered on the premises or through the cloud.

The Room Kit includes camera, codec, speakers and microphones integrated into a single device – and is ideal for rooms that seat up to 7 people. The Room Kit Plus features a separate quad-camera bar and can accommodate larger and deeper rooms of up to 14 people. Both kits offer sophisticated camera technologies that bring speaker-tracking capabilities to every room.

In a nutshell, with the LG/Cisco solutions you can walk into a conference room and get going – as simple as that, even if you’re a first-time user. The system will greet you with a welcome screen and is a much more engaging experience for everyone. You control everything through the intuitive Cisco Touch 10 control unit, so there’s no need to use separate remote controls or learn different user interfaces. And the biggest benefit? Now you can be free to focus entirely on collaborating, and not on the technology.

Currently there are six Cisco-certified commercial displays available from LG, from 49- to 98-inches, with dual screen sharing option and 24/7 rating. LG’s IPS screen technology means colors are more vivid, text is sharper and a wide viewing angle ensures all participants see a clear picture. What’s more, LG commercial displays use on average 31% less power compared to conventional RGB panels for lower power consumption, lower running costs and superior eco credentials.
