"From stunning Ultra HD solutions for retail to 'shine out' technology for
outdoor displays, LG continues to advance the digital signage sector," said
Y.K. Cho, B2B senior vice president, LG Electronics USA. "The outstanding
product line-up showcased at DSE demonstrates LG's superior display technology
and solutions for a wide-range of real world commercial applications." 

LG's flagship digital signage monitor for 2013 is its 84-inch class (84.0 inch
diagonal) Ultra HD Signage Display. Boasting pixel resolution of 3840 x 2160,
four times higher than Full HD displays, it offers the sharpest picture
available on a large-screen display. The massive display is already attracting
attention in the first-ever installation of 4K digital signage at Las Vegas'
McCarran International Airport.

Integrated into all LED models, including the 84-inch class Ultra HD screen,
is LG's In Plane Switching (IPS) panel technology that helps ensure accurate
color saturation and contrast at wide-angle viewing (both horizontal and
vertical), resulting in a display with great picture quality that can be
installed at virtually any angle or height. LG's unique display technology
also provides a temperature tolerance of up to 230 degrees Fahrenheit (110
degrees Celsius), which helps alleviate a common problem of screens
overheating, affecting picture quality.

"As the use of digital signage continues to expand, the importance of image
quality and color accuracy is increasing as well," said Dan Smith, director of
Digital Signage, LG Electronics USA. "LG's IPS LED displays allow for faithful
product representation across the digital signage medium – raising the
standard for digital signage."

LG solutions demonstrated at Digital Signage Expo 2013 include the world's
first Ultra HD digital signage, stunning outdoor displays, versatile
ultra-wide signage, expansive video walls, high-end pro-grade digital signage
and LG EcoSmart™ features.

World's First Ultra HD Signage

lackluster images. Shine Out and the display's brightness level of 2,000 nits
combine to produce content that looks great even in environments with abundant
natural light.
