LG Electronics USA today introduced an all-new entry-level digital signage monitor series aimed at small- to mid-size business (SMB) markets. The five new models in the SE3B series range from 32- to 65-inches diagonally and claim a bezel width (at its thinnest point) of just 11.9 mm, the thinnest on the market at this price. The new series features conformal circuit board coating, a clear, non-conductive coating that is applied to the circuit boards to help protect the internal circuits from harsh environmental factors such as dust, humidity and grease.
LG’s new series offers the ability to control the signage monitors and distribute content through Wi-Fi by providing two USB ports, one for a USB dongle control and one for content distribution. The series supports third-party device management through Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) standards, allowing businesses to receive notifications and control the monitors remotely. The series also includes upgraded features, including a detachable logo and cable management for a clean and flawless installation.
The SE3B series also allows customers to store a pre-defined image on the panel as back up if the standard inputs fail, giving an even higher level of redundancy and customer satisfaction. Further, with the SE3B series, customers can now use the new Image Sticking Management (ISM) mode that allows better hardware protection and life expectancy of the panel, lowering the total cost of ownership.
The SE3B series is ENERGY STAR 6.0 certified, and consumes 18 percent less energy compared to previous models. To further conserve energy, its Direct Power Management feature allows the circuit network to remain on while the panel can be switched off.
