Eight Ways to Effectively Use Digital Signage in Schools

Eight Ways to Effectively Use Digital Signage in Schools

Digital signage is changing the game for communications on campus by creating a unique and integrated campus experience for students, faculty, alumni and visitors. And when you consider the education market, there’s probably a need for just about every type of commercial display, whether for K-12 or higher education. In fact, just about every area within a school could benefit by having digital signage. Here are eight places where digital signage can work wonders.

 

1) Make a Great First Impression

As students, visitors and faculty walk up to the school, greeting them with welcome messaging and school news headlines on outdoor digital signage is a great way to make a solid impression. And digital signs located in the lobby or administrative area can also serve to greet guests, entertain visitors in waiting areas, and provide a pleasing atmosphere while enhancing your institution’s brand.

 

2) Provide Dynamic Wayfinding

Interactive digital signs located throughout the campus are an excellent way to help everyone locate destinations and find their way around. And because digital signage is easy to update, maps and directions can be changed as needed. Depending on the location, both touch screen and non-touch displays can offer great wayfinding assistance.

 

3) Deliver Content Dynamically

The dynamic nature of digital signage allows you to display a multimedia experience that is far more attention-grabbing than a static sign or flyer. Placed in key common areas throughout campus, digital signs can deliver school news, promote events to boost attendance and support, display scheduling or class changes, recognize alumni or valued contributors with donor boards, promote personal recognition and highlight various achievements by students and faculty. This kind of signage can serve as the heart of the network throughout the school.

 

4) Promote Safety

In the event of an emergency, a digital signage network can be used to quickly push critical information and provide necessary instructions to ensure the safety of everyone on campus. A platform such as LG’s webOS™ Signage can allow content takeover on the entire network of campus digital signage, specific groups of displays or even individual displays, for real-time emergency alerts, health alerts, wayfinding, social distancing messages and more.

 

5) Facilitate Interactive Learning

Digital displays can support classes or lectures with high-resolution still images or video, and allow presenters to interact with the content to create an engaging learning environment. An interactive digital board (IDB), also known as an interactive whiteboard, is an ideal touchscreen solution for the classroom. IDBs encourage participation by providing the ability to write on the display, and the screen image can be mirrored onto students’ tablets and laptops.

 

6) Improve Faculty & Staff Communications

Documents and other content can be shared through digital signage, improving communication and collaboration, and streamlining workflow. And small digital signs located outside of meeting rooms can be tied into the scheduling system to highlight room availability and provide a brief outline of meeting topics.

 

7) Drive Revenue

From outdoor sports fields to bookstores to cafeterias and pop-up stands, virtually any digital signage display can help drive sales and increase co-op ad revenue with branded messaging and advertising.

 

8) Enhance Theaters

Whether it’s showcasing a lesson that captures the imagination with colorful content, or amplifying the energy of a live performance, a high-quality video wall or large indoor LED screen is a core technology for an auditorium, music hall, art facility, lecture hall or other large space in a high school or college.

 

LG Is the Right Choice for Education

From outdoor spaces and indoor common areas, to classrooms, theaters and meeting centers, LG Business Solutions offers digital signage to meet virtually any need. And the LG webOS Signage platform can serve as the heart of the entire network of digital signs, providing powerful multimedia capabilities and critical management tools, plus integrated remote management capability that allows monitoring and control of the webOS network. As schools adjust plans for technology buys to react to COVID-19, as well as budget conditions, standardization of technology can help reduce costs. Leveraging LG webOS Signage can help lower install costs and help reduce potential points of failure.

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.

Medical-Grade Monitors: Not Your Standard Desktop Monitors

Medical-Grade Monitors: Not Your Standard Desktop Monitors

 

The demand for seeing doctors virtually, rather than in person, has skyrocketed. As a result more doctors are working remotely from home with workstations often equipped with DICOM Part 14 compliant medical-grade monitors, which are far from standard desktop monitors. More radiologists are working from home as well, using medical-grade monitors. And in hospitals and surgical centers, medical-grade monitors are helping surgeons perform critical procedures.

To ensure image accuracy across devices, DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Part 14 compliance enables the observer to discern all 256 discernible shades of gray in medical images viewed from various medical imaging modalities. Medical-grade monitors also have IEC60601 safety approval. The power supply is designed to eliminate the danger of shocking or electrocuting the patient. The monitors are shielded to eliminate electromagnetic interference with other critical devices. And they can be used in close proximity to the patient.

We’ll go over three types of medical monitors as well as some of the features that can help keep the monitors functioning at their best for years to come.

Diagnostic Monitors are used by medical professionals to view patients’ medical images in order to make a precise diagnosis. A typical radiology workstation can have from two to four diagnostic monitors.

Important for diagnostic monitors are features such as high brightness, to help doctors discern even the finest details. Internal backlight sensors ensure that the image stays stable, and remote & self-calibration helps the monitors deliver consistent medical images with minimal need for adjustments, so the medical professionals can focus completely on their jobs. An auto luminance sensor can help ensure consistent brightness for DICOM conformance over time. Remote software allows calibration to be managed by IT to ensure image quality and consistency, maintaining accurate values. These features can help enable more professional decision-making, diagnostic confidence and workflow.

Clinical Review Monitors differ from diagnostic monitors in that they are typically used for checking medical images, referral or other activities supporting diagnosis. Used to read CT, MRI and Ultrasound at home, they are DICOM Part 14 compliant for a consistent grayscale so that doctors can double-check data based on accurate medical images. Imaging centers that feed into hospitals also use clinical review monitors for their physicians to read and review images prior to sending. Brightness stabilization, dynamic sync, picture-by-picture (PBP), flicker safe and reader mode are important features to look for.

Surgical Monitors are used in operating rooms, and need to have a high degree of accuracy to help surgeons to perform procedures without incident. With surgical monitors the images are usually fed by cameras; one that the surgeon wears on the head, and another in an endoscope that goes deep into the patient’s body. Surgical monitors need to be able to show accurate colors, especially with shades of red, as the surgeon works in real time.

The surgical environment is one that can create certain issues, and typically requires that the monitors be dustproof and water-resistant, and protected against unexpected contact with substances such as blood, bodily fluids and powdered medication. Other critical features are low input lag and a quick response time, so that the image the camera sees as it moves is displayed virtually instantaneously, and the surgeon doesn’t need to slow down and wait for the image to catch up. Also, flicker safe technology, designed to reduce flickering that can cause eye fatigue, can help the surgeon view images more comfortably for an extended period.

Digital X-ray Detectors are not monitors, but they play a key role as they feed images to the monitors and need to ensure accuracy with the highest image quality. To that end, 16-bit A/D conversion is an ideal feature.

LG medical displays are optimized and built to meet international medical digital image standards, assisting doctors in making precise and accurate medical judgements through a wide selection of products. We’ve created a new LG Medical Display Digital Experience 2020 webpage, where you can check out the latest medical monitors, download data sheets and explore digital signage solutions, too. We invite you to take a tour today.

LG Hospital Grade Personal Smart Touch Screen TV Entertains, Engages and Educates Patients

LG Hospital Grade Personal Smart Touch Screen TV Entertains, Engages and Educates Patients

It’s a smart solution for enhancing the patient experience. The 15-inch touch screen TV 15LT766A is UL Listed for use in healthcare facilities, which ensures a safe product for patient room use. It can be used as an arm TV, with low-voltage, power over coax (PoC) – using a single cable to bring both power and content to the TV through the arm. The display panel is designed so that it can be cleaned thoroughly, and the rounded corners of the TV reduce the possibility of the TV bumping harshly into staff, patients or family visitors.

The Full HD multi-touch screen recognizes the presence of more than two points of contact with the surface, allowing multiple users in a hospital setting to experience interactive services (e.g., doctor and patient) and entertainment (e.g., patient and family). And IPS technology provides a true wide viewing angle so all can clearly see the picture with virtually no image degradation.

With its multi-touch screen and integrated webOS 3.5, a platform that facilitates solutions from Patient Engagement Solution Providers in the industry, the TV can enable the use of a patient-specific education system. In the hospital, effective communication between the patient, family members and clinical team is key to a better patient experience and good outcomes. Using a patient education system also reduces the need for paper collateral and can eliminate the need for printed material about the patient’s condition.

With a patient education system in place, hospitals can use the 15LT766A to send the patient educational video content specific to their diagnosis and treatment, and even verify that the patient has viewed it. If the treatment calls for diet restrictions, for example, the patient can select a menu option from the welcome screen and set up their diet plan while they are in the hospital. The hospital may also provide daily updates and the discharge date on the welcome screen, as well as a patient discharge survey. At every step of the way, the personal smart touch screen TV can help engage the patient in their own care while lending an accommodating digital bedside manner.

The 15LT766A as well as other LG hospital grade TVs can bring expanded ROI to the facility in four key ways:

1) A large portion of the ROI could come from movie rentals, as LG’s integrated Pro:Idiom® enables access to premium HD content, monetizing with the ability to provide premium services for patients.

2) Provide the patient with pre-loaded applications, including many popular games, YouTube, web browser and others, for expanded, homelike entertainment.

3) Reduce risk by educating patients and doing it in a way that is attractive to them.

4) Provide patients with a discharge survey where the hospital can be scored based on the patient experience. The ability to rent movies, play games, select a preferred meal menu and view specific diagnosis and care information on the TV can enhance the patient experience and result in higher survey scores.

LG offers the widest range of TVs to suit virtually any hospital need and budget. Hospitals have found that partnering with LG for hospital grade televisions is good for their patients, and good for business.

Working From Home Can Be Easier With the Right Gear

Working From Home Can Be Easier With the Right Gear

Right now many businesses are encountering unique challenges as their employees transition to working from home. Amid all the disruption the goal is to help keep everyone safe, and to try to carry on as close to ‘business as usual’ as possible.

Working from home can be tough. Even tougher without the right equipment. People unaccustomed to working from home may not be set up for high productivity. Many might not have the spare space or even a desk, and some are getting quite creative with their makeshift workstations.
