LG Electronics Showcases Sleek Designs, Advanced HDTV Technologies at 2011 Hospitality Design Expo
Emphasizes Stylish LED HDTV Line, LCD HDTVs with Pro:Centric™ Technology, LG Cinema 3D LCD HDTV and Large-Screen Plasma Displays
LAS VEGAS, May 18, 2011 — Hoteliers and guests alike demand stylish designs and in-room technology for a high-end atmosphere and luxury experience. As the undisputed leader in hospitality high-definition solutions and an innovator in technology and design, LG Electronics USA is answering this demand with its line of chic hospitality and lodging solutions featured this week at the 2011 Hospitality Design (HD) Expo (booth #1916).
“In-room style is a high priority for hoteliers as they equip guestrooms with the latest and often times larger HDTVs,” said Ron Snaidauf, vice president, Commercial Displays, LG Electronics USA. “Leading the trend this year is our LED HDTV series. With its slim profile and frame, the commercial LED model brings a sleek, modern feel to guestrooms while delivering a superior viewing experience and helping to address the environmental objectives of hoteliers.”
LED HDTVs for Style and Performance
For hoteliers seeking a sophisticated design with crisp picture and energy-saving technology, LG is featuring its commercial LED HDTV (model LE530C). Available in 42-inch diagonal, 47-inch diagonal and 55-inch class (54.6-inches measured diagonally) sizes, this series features a slim 1.2-inch profile and invisible speaker system. Delivering superb high-definition images, these LG commercial LED HDTVs are ideal as the focal point of a guest room or public area.
Modern Design Meets Cutting-Edge Technology with Pro:Centric and Pro:Idiom
LG is demonstrating its industry-leading Pro:Centric and Pro:Idiom technologies, which enable hoteliers to provide easy delivery of customized content, including information-sharing, advertising and HD programming.
Pro:Centric is LG’s unique applications platform that enables in-room television interactivity, streamlining how hoteliers deliver information into the guestroom. With Pro:Centric, guests have easy access to interactive electronic program guides and hotel services such as spa appointments, room service or golf course scheduling. This is a cost-effective way for hoteliers to deliver uniform services and features across both radio frequency (RF) and Internet protocol (IP) based networks without the need for additional hardware such as set-top boxes.
In addition to sleek designs and interactive applications, delivering high-definition channels to guestrooms is another key to enhancing the guest experience. Pro:Idiom is the industry-standard digital rights management system developed by LG that provides access to HD content. For hoteliers looking to simply upgrade to sleek, HD-ready flat-panel displays, Pro:Idiom HDTVs include built-in b-LAN,™ which gives full support to encrypted HD content.
LG Cinema 3D Available for Guests
LG’s first commercial 3D LCD HDTV (model 47LD950C) offers a truly cinematic experience away from theaters and in the comfortable setting of a hotel. Unlike most consumer 3D TVs that use clunky and expensive active-shutter 3D glasses, this LG Cinema 3D commercial model uses comfortable and trendy polarized eyewear, similar to that used in movie theaters.
Hoteliers are bringing the 3D experience out of luxury rooms and making it available in common spaces, such as bars and lounges, as well as theaters and lobbies. With commercial-grade LG Cinema 3D, guests can enjoy exciting 3D content and a wide viewing angle providing an exceptional experience from almost any seat in the room. Since 3D content can be transmitted over a hotel’s existing RF or IP infrastructure, there is no need for structural retrofits or special head-end installations.
Big Screen, Slim Bezel Plasma HDTV
For hoteliers who want to offer big screens with stunning picture quality, LG is showcasing its stunning new 50-inch diagonal and 60-inch class (59.8-inches measured diagonally) size commercial plasma HDTVs (model PK550C) that deliver a superior viewing experience for a variety of hospitality applications. This series’ TruSlim bezel and narrow 2.2-inch cabinet depth trim unnecessary bulk and focus the attention to the HD screen. Commercial features include public display settings, USB cloning capability and an RS-232C port which helps reduce installation time and maintenance costs.
Technical specifications and details for all LG HDTVs on display at HD Expo this week can be found on LG’s Website at www.LGsolutions.com.
