LG ELECTRONICS USA SELECTED AS OFFICIAL HDTV PROVIDER FOR DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION
The 2012 Democratic National Convention Committee and the Committee for Charlotte 2012 have selected LG Electronics USA as the convention’s “Official HDTV Provider.”
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 31, 2012 – The 2012 Democratic National Convention Committee and the Committee for Charlotte 2012 have selected LG Electronics USA as the convention’s “Official HDTV Provider.”
Hundreds of LG displays, including LED HDTVs, Smart TVs, and CINEMA 3D models, will be seen throughout the convention by delegates, government officials, VIPs, and media descending on Charlotte for the Sept. 4-6 event.
Under its agreement with the Committee for Charlotte 2012 and the 2012 Democratic National Convention Committee, LG has supplied more than 350 displays for the three main convention venues: the Time Warner Cable Arena (site of keynote speeches and delegate votes), Charlotte Convention Center (where caucuses and media events are held) and Bank of America Stadium (where President Obama will officially kick-off his re-election campaign before tens of thousands of attendees Thursday night).
The LG flat-panel HDTVs, in five screen sizes from 32- to 55-inch class, will help keep delegates, journalists, and other convention participants informed of convention activities and other news as they navigate the various convention venues for meetings, interviews, and other activities.
“The 2012 convention is our most advanced technologically ever,” said Andrew Binns, chief information officer, Democratic National Convention Committee. “As part of our mission to hold the most open and accessible convention in history, we will connect more delegates, officials, convention guests, and media than ever before in a dynamic way. LG’s cutting-edge display technologies play a key role in delivering timely, compelling high-def convention content to attendees.”
