LAS VEGAS, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics USA is expanding its Ultra HD large-screen commercial-grade monitor line-up for 2014 by unveiling LG's all-new 105-inch class display – its largest commercial screen to date. Introduced at Digital Signage Expo 2014 (Booth 500), LG's new edge-lit LED LCD Ultra HD Display features impressive 105-inch class screen with a 21:9 aspect ratio and 5120 x 2160 (5K) resolution for visually stunning picture clarity.
"Our newest Ultra HD digital signage displays are going to turn a lot of heads at this year's show," said Dan Smith, director of digital signage, LG Electronics USA. "Our new 105- and 98-inch class products are the doorway to the future, and they literally are larger than doorways. When combining this scale and this incredible resolution with expanded color standards and the benefits of LG IPS technology, what was only a concept a short time ago is now a reality. It must be seen to be comprehended."
Large Scale Ultra HD Viewing
Ideal for retail settings, LG's 105-inch Ultra HD 21:9 commercial display can render stunning, life-size images of people and products. LG's newest model has five times the resolution of a Full HD display*, for crisp pictures with an incredible level of detail. The 21:9 aspect ratio screen is perfect for displaying all types of content, giving customers the freedom of a broad canvas on which to communicate their brand. LG's 105-inch ULTRA HD display also offers the installation flexibility customers desire ― it can be oriented vertically in portrait mode or horizontally in landscape.
Joining the 105-inch class Ultra HD commercial display at the show is another notable display from LG's ULTRA HD digital signage lineup, the 98-inch class 98LS95A. This Ultra HD digital signage display delivers 3840 x 2160 resolution in a 16:9 aspect ratio. The 98-inch Ultra HD display has a bezel width of just 14.6mm and may be mounted in portrait or landscape mode for optimal use in a wide range of commercial applications.
Both the 105-inch and 98-inch displays are equipped with a proprietary chip that optimizes image quality. This sophisticated upscaling function takes SD, HD or Full HD content and renders it in sharp detail on the Ultra HD screen . Both displays can decode H.264 and HEVC H.265 at 30p or 60p. What's more, the TV seamlessly displays Ultra HD content from nearly any input source, including HDMI 2.0, USB and LAN.
Boasting an image with 8 million pixels and enhanced by LG's renowned IPS (In Plane Switching) panel technology, the Ultra HD displays provide the sharpest picture available on a large-screen display and the most immersive viewing experience in the industry. LG's IPS panel technology ensures optimal color saturation and contrast for off-angle viewing (both horizontal and vertical). IPS technology also provides a screen surface temperature tolerance of up to 230 degrees Fahrenheit (110 degrees Celsius), which helps alleviate a common problem with screens overheating and, as a result, suffering from permanent picture quality damage.
Information through Interaction
Also demonstrated at DSE 2014 is a highly responsive touch display from LG's Ultra HD lineup: The 84-inch class84WT70MS(PS) (84.0 inch diagonal) is an ideal solution for numerous interactive touch applications - wayfinding in public spaces, an educational platform in schools and museums, or as an advanced sales tool in retail stores. The 84WT70MS(PS) is one of the world's largest Ultra HD-based touch screen displays that can be mounted in landscape or portrait.
LG's IR-Spread touch technology on the 84WT70MS(PS) provides smooth and accurate 10-point multi-touch interaction and gestures for a broad range of precise interactive needs and a more intuitive and predictable interactive touch experience. The image quality and integrity is protected with a specialized coating, which minimizes the visibility of fingerprints and smudges to keep the touch surface and on-screen images looking crystal-clear.
