LG Health Protocol Solutions Let Businesses Communicate Essential Messaging Right Where It’s Needed

LG Health Protocol Solutions Let Businesses Communicate Essential Messaging Right Where It’s Needed

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues and businesses across the country begin phased reopening, there remains an urgent need to communicate critical messaging to employees, customers and the public at large. A very effective way to do that is with digital signage.

As we’ve long known, digital signage can excel at attracting attention, displaying bright, clear content and compelling people to act. In retail, for example, digital signage usually attracts attention with advertisements for a sale, new product information or special offers. Today, however, there’s a new content strategy – one that helps ensure the health and safety of customers and employees.

Retail businesses can use digital signage to raise awareness of CDC guidelines for social distancing, mask wearing and routine hand washing. They can highlight special store hours and maximum occupancy limitations, display maps of store layouts, wayfinding information and directional routes to manage foot traffic through aisles. They can integrate with point-of-sale systems to show product availability and purchase limits for select items.

Another example is the workplace, where digital signage can be used at main entrances to point the way to temperature sensing stations, and display important public health information in hallways, cafeterias and other common areas. It can provide ongoing support for employees with the latest company news and announcements. And much like we’ve seen in healthcare facilities, digital signage can be used to help create a calming atmosphere, with tranquil scenic imagery, digital art and inspirational quotes.

During this time of crisis, digital signage heightens one of its greatest strengths by getting messages seen by as many people as possible – messages that can be updated or changed in real time, even remotely from a central location. What’s more, with currently available display mobility kits, digital signage can be placed virtually anywhere the message needs to be seen. Right now, LG is offering special digital signage packages for businesses like grocers, restaurants, home improvement centers, medical clinics, pharmacies, banks and more.

LG’s portfolio of digital signage displays includes high-haze outdoor and semi-outdoor models, indoor smart platform Ultra HD and HD displays, ultra-stretch screens, menu boards, video walls, and high-brightness window-facing signage, all of which can help deliver essential information in the right place at the right time to the right audience.

Featuring special bundles, our Health Protocol Solutions page will make it easy for you to get started.

LG’s New Entry-Level VL5F Displays Make It Easy to Add a Video Wall

LG’s New Entry-Level VL5F Displays Make It Easy to Add a Video Wall

As many businesses are currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some are using this time to remodel, focusing on providing a better customer experience for the future. One of the ways businesses can enhance their customer experience is with digital signage, and the current climate brings a need to clearly communicate new messaging to customers, visitors, employees, patients, students, and others.

One of the most effective ways to get a message seen by as many people as possible in a variety of business environments is with a video wall: Individual display screens tiled together to create one impressively large screen that can effortlessly capture the attention of passersby.

LG’s new entry-level VL5F series Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) video wall displays can make an interior digital renovation a smart plan, in both budget and deployment. Available in 49- and 55-inch models at attractive price points, these Energy Star® certified displays are rated for 24-hour operation and feature an ultra-narrow bezel-to-bezel width of 3.5mm, rendering a virtually seamless image when the displays are tiled into one screen.

When multiple screens create a single screen, high image quality from edge to edge is essential. LG’s In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology is an advantage, as it provides a wide viewing angle of up to 178 degrees, horizontally and vertically, where color is rich and true, contrast is high and text is crisp. IPS brings out the full beauty of Full HD. And to ensure that the images are less obstructed by the thin bezels, the VL5F series includes an image improvement algorithm that can reduce image gaps among tiled displays when playing back videos—objects located on the bezel boundaries are adjusted accordingly.

Setting up and operating a VL5F series video wall is straightforward. Depending on the content, the color temperature of the display can be adjusted using a remote control. White balance adjustment is detailed and precise, as adjustments can be made with the ability to modify each value of grayscale. In addition, a user-friendly menu structure groups similar functions together with a four-way navigation remote control, so users can avoid trial-and-error when exploring desired functions and managing displays. A large font makes for better visibility, which may be necessary when users want to control displays from relatively far distances.

Content creation and management is facilitated with LG SuperSign™ CMS all-in-one content management software for editing, scheduling and distribution. Included are 100 templates and various special effects to augment the look and feel.

LG VL5F series video wall displays include a commercial 3-year limited warranty, and an Enhanced Service Plan is available for an additional fee to ensure businesses get the most from their investment. The design and operation of this video wall display is attractive and highly functional and can be used to deliver alerts, instructions, advertising and myriad information in a variety of business environments, making for an enhanced experience when the doors open again.

Stratodesk and LG – Making Work From Home Reliable and Secure

Stratodesk and LG – Making Work From Home Reliable and Secure
With more workers around the world now accessing vital work applications and data from home, it is clearer than ever before how necessary having a secure and reliable work from home strategy is. 

However, there are many obstacles between you and the perfect, harmonious work from home deployment. These include, connecting remote users securely with the apps and data they need, ensuring ongoing security for your remote endpoints in the event that they are lost or stolen, and managing configuring and managing remote devices outside your corporate perimeter. 

 

How do you enable secure access to apps and data for remote users? 

When it comes to enabling work from home, there are several challenges you are bound to face. To begin with, you must make sure that all end users have the devices they need to get their most important work tasks done. 

When we see what has happened in the current crisis situation, for example, it becomes painfully apparent that in a moment’s notice, workers might have to access EVERYTHING remotely.

IT is faced with a seemingly impossible challenge. What if workers require access to specialized applications? Will you rely on their home and personal devices? Will you purchase all employees dedicated, new devices? How do you do so without spending a fortune?


In addition to the hardware problem – getting the right devices to the right people at the right time – there’s the security problem. How on earth do you ensure security on the endpoint for all of these devices? These devices will be accessing confidential corporate information regularly. Are you okay with that information being housed on endpoint devices outside your corporate perimeter? Are you able to handle the ramifications of those devices being lost or stolen? 

Also, how do you enable appropriate licensing? Software must be properly licensed on each endpoint, updated, patched, and maintained. Additionally, malware and antivirus contracts must be provided. 


Lastly, IT must provide excellent technical support for potentially thousands of remote devices, scattered around the world, with different hardware specifications, and multiple different software versions housed on each and every one.

 

Enrich your secure digital perimeter with

LG Thin Clients

Luckily for IT and workers everywhere, there is a solution.

LG Thin Clients ensure the ultimate work experience, assuring enterprises continued productivity – in the midst of a crisis, or just everyday – without breaking the bank.

LG Thin Clients are the ideal complement to your VDI or Cloud solution. When accessing their apps and data from these secure devices, workers will feel as though they are accessing desktops and applications located on the devices right in front of them. In case a device is lost or stolen, IT can rest assured. Vital corporate data are not stored on the Thin Client device. Instead, they are securely housed in the company’s on-premises infrastructure or in the Cloud.

LG offers several different form factors that are ideal for work from home. For example, organizations can make use of the LG All-in-One Thin Client – the ultimate thin client for work from home use. This Thin Client boasts a monitor and a Thin Client combined. It is powerful and the ideal fit for virtually any use case. 

 

LG partners with endpoint solution leader, Stratodesk, to enable seamless device/peripheral management and automatic configuration.

Stratodesk NoTouch software is the ideal complement to LG Thin Clients, comes on LG Thin Clients directly out of the box, or can be deployed onto new and existing Thin Clients in a matter of minutes. NoTouch is fully secure, Linux-based, and contains the clients for major VDI solutions directly out of the box. NoTouch software also includes the unrivaled, automated endpoint management solution, NoTouch Center, enabling IT to manage thousands of devices from the convenience of one location. 

It is the perfect remote work solution — permitting seamless work from home natively while also offering enterprise enhancements like Cloud Xtension, Disk Encryption, and beyond, to make work from home accessible to any organization. 

Enterprises, organizations and businesses of all sizes around the world can bolster their secure, digital perimeter while empowering work from home with a combination of Stratodesk software and LG Thin Clients.
