LG Commercial was one of the most popular booths at InfoComm 2022 last month in Vegas. In fact, the company debuted robots for the hospitality industry that AV integrators can sell! Dubbed CLOi, there are two versions: One that can do things like room service delivery, bring patients food in a hospital or function as a moving bookshelf; the other can be a virtual/physical concierge or moving wayfinding/tour guide. Seriously, they are cool — watch both of these videos:
So, if you’re looking to get into a new market, LG’s robots will guide you there. Think about the potential. Yes, these are not traditional AV, but if you don’t tell your clients they exist, they’ll never buy them from you …
As you may know, LG entered the UCC market at the end of 2021 with two collaboration boards dubbed One:Quick. Available in a 2K resolution 43” version as well as a 4K resolution 55” version, both are embedded with Windows 10, and the UX is what makes them unique. The 43” is called Flex and includes a top-mounted 2K camera and a mic array — it’s designed for huddle spaces. The “Works” version is 55” and includes a 4K camera with a 20-foot pickup range for the mics. Both are included in this video:
The new One:Quick was not the only interactive touch-based system in the LG booth. The company also used the demo’d its line of CreateBoard Interactive Panels for both education and corporate applications. Featuring built-in Android, it’s more of a heavy-duty collaboration system; it even includes wireless casting of content from any laptop.
A few years ago, LG blew people away with its Transparent LED systems, and now, with 14-millimeter pixel pitch and color, the coolest part is that they peel and stick to any glass and turn any window into a signage display! This is perfect for retail, advertising and as an information display. It’s sure to grab your attention — check it out:
Now’s a good time in our journey for you to consider taking my booth tour. LG debuted so many solutions that the tour can help you home in on which videos you should watch. LG’s Dan Smith led the tour, and it really gives you a sense of what it was like to be inside the booth on a busy show floor — it was packed!
Of course, OLED has driven much of LG’s success and exposure over the past half-dozen years, and at InfoComm 2022, the OLED solutions were still driving eyeballs. LG had a great retail demo set up with transparent OLED in a shadow box configuration.
LG also led with LED. The company’s Greg Patrick showed the LSCB that includes 1.2 to 2.5mm versions and can be used in flat or curved applications. The one at IC22 was 1.66 millimeters; it looked incredible:
The company also had a 54” version of its LSAC LEDs, built to be an all-in-one LED wall module — larger than nearly every other LED module — 16 modules/cabinets can create a native 4K 217” display!
Finally, I want to point out two more videos you should absolutely take the time to watch. First, take a moment to watch my one-on-one interview with Dan Smith. He’s bullish on the rest of 2022, and he does a really good job explaining and outlining LG’s positioning right now in the display world. That interview is below:
Finally, watch this video debut of LG’s new 110” LCD display. Yes, a 110” LCD — yes, it’s native 4K:
