LG Introduces UT640S Series UHD Commercial Lite TV Signage


The UT640S series UHD (3840 X 2160) Commercial Lite TV Signage is designed to combine live television programming with digital signage content in diverse business environments. By providing compatibility with AV Control systems and DPM (Display Power Management) as well as its smart connectivity, simple user-friendly interface and UHD picture quality, the UT640S series enhances ease of use while helping businesses entertain and communicate with their target audiences. The new LG UT640S Series UHD Commercial Lite TV Signage is available in screen sizes from 43-inch to 86-inch class.

The displays’ embedded Content and Group Management System allows managers to edit and play content, and schedule playlists and groups. It also allows a manager to control the signage via remote control, mouse or mobile phone without the need for a separate PC or software, thereby simplifying content management.

The UT640S series includes LG SuperSign Control software, to give managers the ability to control multiple displays at once. A single account is provided, which can check device information, set up basic properties such as power, picture mode, volume, time, scheduling and even firmware updates for up to 100 displays, through a single server. Centralized control can prevent public tampering with TV settings, and a Lock mode blocks external input signals containing non-compliant content – a very useful feature for preventing misuse of TVs in various facilities or public spaces.

Initial set up of multiple displays is easy and efficient with USB cloning, since managers do not have to completely set up each display one by one. Instead, the user creates a master display, and then copies the data from it onto a USB memory device. From there, the data can be easily distributed to the other displays through a USB plug-in.

Real-time remote monitoring helps ensure maximum uptime, as malfunctions or errors can be easily handled through real-time remote care. Should an error occur, notifications can be sent through the SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) protocol.

Wake-on-LAN (WOL) enables managers to turn on displays by sending messages through the network. This greatly simplifies the installation and maintenance processes since only a single wire is needed for power and network connection.

Picture quality is excellent with LG IPS (In Plane Switching) screen technology. IPS provides a wide viewing angle where color remains accurate, contrast is consistent and text is legible. Content can be clearly seen, regardless of the viewer’s position. The display also includes 4K UHD upscaling, which automatically upgrades Full HD content to UHD resolution so that images look crisp and clear in virtually any situation.

The UT640S series is Crestron Connected® certified, for a higher level of compatibility with professional AV controls. This can result in virtually seamless integration and automated control, boosting business management efficiency.
