LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., Jan. 13, 2011 – LG Electronics USA today announced its turn-key digital signage solution, SuperSign Premier-s, has been honored with a prestigious DIGI Award in the “Best New Technology Innovation” category for Digital Signage.

Considered among the top honors in the digital signage industry, the DIGI Awards are bestowed annually on leading resellers, integrators and service providers committed to advancing the digital signage industry as a whole. The DIGI awards are commissioned by Digital Signage Magazine and leading distributor, The Digital Signage Group.

“SuperSign Premier is a revolutionary digital signage solution that brings together all the core elements required by small and medium businesses – hardware, software, services, support, and a wide variety of professional content – to be able to quickly set-up, manage and operate digital signage,” said Jeff Dowell, vice president, Digital Signage, LG Electronics USA. “This prestigious award is a testament to the fact that SuperSign Premier is the industry’s first complete out-of-box digital signage solution and signals that the industry is evolving towards integrated solutions aimed for small and medium businesses. We believe there is tremendous growth potential in the small and medium business segment, and LG is in a unique position to deliver tremendous value with SuperSign Premier.”

LG’s SuperSign Premier is a digital signage solution designed for SMBs that provides compelling content that can be used right out of the box. SuperSign Premier’s user interface (UI) is customized by customer and is specifically designed for SMBs deploying networks of 25 players or less. The hardware package consists of an LG flat panel display (model M4214C) and the LG NC2000 media player, which provides access to content management software and starter templates as well as news and weather feeds. SuperSign Premier also is supported by 48-hour on-site hardware swap*, technical support and convenient monthly financing.

This solution is supported by a variety of key content providers, led by CNN. LG enjoys a long-standing alliance with news leader CNN, which provides more than a dozen news and entertainment feeds that can be easily and quickly integrated by the end user. LG is also teaming with iStockphoto, which offers easy, affordable and royalty-free photos, illustrations, video, audio and Flash® files. SuperSign Premier also offers direct access to LG’s “Certified Content Providers” (CCP), which offer custom content creation services optimized for the SuperSign Premier system. Initial LG CCP providers include Aspect Productions, Alchemy, Blue Pony and Saddle Ranch Productions.
