As businesses and schools around the country reopen amid the ongoing pandemic, LG Business Solutions USA has expanded its suite of Health Protocol Solutions, introducing new digital signage packages that provide information, guidance, wayfinding and interactive experiences. And, LG partnered with a few third-party companies to provide the products, including wellness kiosks, occupancy management systems, portable battery-operated solutions and even contact-less interactive digital signage displays.
The new Wellness Kiosks are a solution to provide information, health equipment and peace of mind to customers in any physical store environment. The upright, rectangular system includes a thermal scanner for temperature readings integrated with a 22- or 32-inch LG digital webOS Signage display for displaying health information. The system has a motion-activated hand sanitizer dispenser along with slots to hold boxes of gloves or masks. It even tracks how many people are using hand sanitizer. As a compact all-in-one solution, no additional components are required.
Many retail stores and public venues have begun tracking real-time occupancy to abide by local and internal policies. The new Occupancy Management Solutions integrating LG displays can reduce staff workload by automatically tracking when customers enter and exit while guiding incoming customers. This eliminates the need to place employees close to customers at each entrance. At the heart of the occupancy systems are 49- and 55-inch LG displays combined with a separate media player that helps manage inflow by updating arriving customers to wait times or current store occupancy.
For high-traffic restrooms in transit centers or public venues, a new SmartRestroom solution informs users of the bathroom’s current occupancy and cleaning status. The system uses external sensors and LG’s webOS Signage platform to automatically detect and relay occupancy information to custodians through a push-alert when cleaning is required, based on usage. The system is built around a 32-inch LG display that mounts outside the bathroom entrance.
Property managers and owners of retail stores, hospitality venues, schools, and colleges deal with local regulations and corporate policies, experiment with new layouts and do their best to make customers and visitors feel safe and informed. During this time, ubiquitous digital signage is crucial to communicate rules and limit staff interaction with customers, whether it’s located in the store’s windows or an aisle next to a product display a register or anywhere else.
The Portable A-Frame Display Solution combines a 32-inch webOS Signage display, an optional onboard battery and either a folding base or a rolling base to allow relocation at a moment’s notice. The LG display is mounted vertically to match the base’s width and allow un-intrusive placement in foot traffic zones.
For more significant needs, LG has launched a series of standard and high-brightness solutions that are available in 49-inch and 55-inch display sizes, complete with a Peerless-AV SmartMount Flat Panel Cart for simple and flexible placement.
For interactive displays in retail and public venues without using touch screens, many contact-less interactive solutions that allow customers to connect with on-screen digital content through mobile device links or voice controls are now available through LG’s health solutions page. With contact-less interactive solutions, businesses can foster close-knit customer interactions while showing their commitment to providing safe, healthy shopping experiences. Packages are customizable, built around virtually any LG Signage display to fit specific needs.
