LG ELECTRONICS’ DIGITAL SIGNAGE MONITORS BRING DIVERSE OPTIONS TO HOSPITALITY ENVIRONMENTS
Design-Focused LCD HDTV Displays Make Information Sharing Easier,
More Interactive with Enhanced Connectivity Options
NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2009 — LG Electronics is unveiling advanced digital signage solutions — from interactive advertising to wayfinding applications — for the hospitality and lodging industry this week at the International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show (Booth #3006).
An emerging technology leader in the digital signage industry, LG is demonstrating the growing importance of digital out-of-home advertising to hoteliers and restaurateurs, with unique LCD HDTV monitors that enhance almost any environment. Wayfinding touch screens such as LG’s model M4714T not only bring enhanced customer service but also modernize hospitality spaces. With slim stretch screens (models M3800S-BN and M2900S-BN) that are roughly half the height of a traditional monitor, commercial settings like hotel gift shops and restaurants can take advantage of digital signage even in hard to fit spaces.
“The evolution of hospitality technology and design has led to new opportunities for effective information sharing between the hotel and its guests,” said Jeff Dowell, vice president, Digital Signage, LG Electronics USA Business Solutions. “LG helps hoteliers meet the needs of these audiences by providing the right technology solution – from business centers to lobby entertainment – to ensure their experience is as interactive as it is enjoyable.”
Touch to Stretch
LG’s digital signage products incorporate wayfinding technologies that help guests find their way around the hotel and make it easier to map out a day trip, locate the business center or simply find a place to grab a cup of coffee.
Allowing patrons to pick and choose their destination or figure out their current location, LG’s 47-inch class* touch-screen HDTV model (M4714T) brings sophistication to wayfinding and can be applied to lodging and hospitality atmospheres. With 3M Dispersive Signal Touch (DST) integrated technology, screen response is faster, more accurate, and interactive. Full HD 1080p native display resolution allows for crisp, clear content while ultra-high brightness levels bring color and content to life. A narrow 36 millimeter bezel helps the model fit seamlessly into any setting – in portrait and landscape mode.
For innovative software applications and unique installations where just one monitor won’t fit the bill, LG’s “Stretch Screens” are the perfect solution. Available in 29-and 38-inch class sizes* (models M2900S-BN and M3800S-BN), but still only around half the height of a traditional LCD monitor, the stretch screen is an elegant addition to smaller spaces. Adding to their versatility, these monitors can be mounted for portrait or landscape presentation and used for digital bar or restaurant menus and even hotel directories. With a native display resolution of 1366 x 480 and a contrast ratio of 1,000:1, menus and special advertisements stand out. A Super IPS angle of 178 degrees also ensures that no matter where a patron is sitting, content is viewable at almost any angle.
Split Zoom and Video Walls
From corporate reception areas to education settings, the 42-inch class* M4224C LCD monitor brings a variety of high-definition display options. A Full HD 1080p resolution monitor, the M4224C features new LAN and video wall control for easy scheduling and dissemination of content. With an ultra-slim bezel at just 16.9 mm, the M4224C blends easily into any space. Split Zoom capabilities for video wall applications provide a versatile, cost-effective alternative to projectors and standard CRTs that both students and executives can enjoy.
LG’s 52-inch class* digital signage monitor (model M5201C-BA), is a widescreen LCD HDTV monitor equipped with Full HD 1080p resolution for optimal display capability. With enhanced landscape and portrait applications, this model is ideal for those seeking more innovative, energy efficient ways to capitalize on digital signage applications.
For hotels focused on environmental sustainability, the RoHS-compliant M5201C has three power saving levels. For new large-scale installation options, this model is versatile enough to be used for video walls and engaging storefront advertising, all of which provide a more intense, attention-grabbing experience. The 52-inch class model incorporates a superior viewing angle of 178 degrees, a narrow 63 mm bezel and features a Tile Mode setting for exciting 4x4 video wall applications.
Energy Efficient LCD Monitors
LCD computer monitors are important for crisp, clear display of information in locations such as business center applications and guest check-in. LG’s latest LCD Monitors are Energy Star® compliant and incorporate power-saving levels and intuitive technologies. Through HDMI™, model W2442PA-BF can be connected to a Blu-ray player or a high-definition game console for entertainment options in suites. This allows the user to experience stunning, life-like images with Full HD 1080p resolution and an innovative DFC 10,000:1 contrast ratio. The W2442PA-BF also incorporates LG’s exclusive f-ENGINE™ integrated digital picture system for enhanced graphics editing capabilities.

With the W1942TQ-BF, images are rendered with striking effect and text comes through sharp and clear.

Additionally, designed with a 1000:1 contrast ratio and 5ms response time, the W1934S-BN produces images that are more brilliant and warm.
