Mvix Releases webOS App for LG SoC Signage Screens

Recommended Posts

STERLING, Va., January 4, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Mvix, a leading provider of content-rich digital signage software and solutions, announced the expansion of their device-agnostic platform to include support for LG SoC signage screens.

"We couldn't be more excited to announce the release of Mvix for LG webOS," said A. Jay, the Mvix Senior Director of Business Relations."We're big on shifting focus to choice of CMS, support structure, and business model, and LG's SoC displays empower us to do just that."

The device-agnostic platform, called Mvix Flex, also includes support for Chrome OS and Android.

Mvix Flex gives customers the same Mvix experience on commercial LG SoC displays without the need for an external media player. Customers get the full Mvix experience, in addition to:

  • live video playback, including HDCP encrypted content - any HDMI Input video that is encoded using HDCP, including live TV, will be supported and displayed on the screens
  • remote volume control
  • remote control of the signage screens - by default, screens are set to display content 24/7, but Mvix for LG webOS allows you to remotely turn the screens on and off. This is a feature that's available on Mvix signage players (see it here) that has been extended to webOS
  • support for RTSP (rtsp://), popular in AV for live streaming

These features, unique to Mvix for LG webOS, allow the company to deliver a powerful, reliable and secure platform for the signage market. Customers also get a simplified installation and a low total cost of ownership. Such a solution will:

  • reduce maintenance costs
  • minimize points of failure
  • save physical space
  • reduce energy consumption

Mvix also released a second webOS solution called Mvix Xpress. Ideal for building directories and menu boards, this solution puts the content creation software SignageCreator on LG displays. The software includes 1000s of templates which can be edited, customized and published remotely. The simple content creation suite includes animations, slideshows, overlapping layers and scrolling text.

"Just like with Mvix for Chrome OS, Mvix for LG webOS allows us to expand our ecosystem into international markets," added A. Jay. "LG SoC displays are readily available in Europe and Asia, eliminating the need for shipping and customs. Getting up and running is as easy as downloading the Mvix app and signing in with existing account credentials."

Mvix is offering an introductory 90-day free trial of Mvix for LG webOS.

    • IPv6 support please

      It's 2016 now. IPv6 has been around since 1997. Some countries are close to 50% deployment of IPv6. Even my home printer supports IPv6. The Linux kernel, on which webOS is based has been supporting a stable IPv6 implementation since the 2.6 kernel series.   This was certainly my main disappointment when I bought a LG Smart TV.

    • Magic Remote support for controlling Definitive Technology Studio W sound bar

      The Magic Remote has universal remote control support for a number of different sound bar brands, but not for Definitive Technology and their W Studio sound bar model.  I would like to see this support added.  It would also be nice if the interface allowed manually setting the remote control codes for various functions, in the case where corresponding devices are not listed.

    • Question: LG UHD TV digital sound out popping noise problem

      Dear Readers,

      I've a strange issue that I've been struggling for a week. I bought an LG43UJ634V UHD TV and an LG LHB645N Home Theater in a Box system.
      I use HDMI ARC to connect the audio from the TV to receiver. LG has an option to chose between PCM or Auto at the Digital output settings.

      If I use the PCM option everything sounds great, but I don't have 5.1, only 2.1.
      And here comes the problem. When I choose Auto, 5.1 is on, sounds great but I have occasional popping noise (like when play something on an old LP player) it happens random, but for example during a film, it is very annoying. It happens with YouTube, Netflix, DLNA streaming, external devices, so the content doesn't matter. I think I've tried everything. I tested it with different HDMI cables, optical cable, but still have the problem. I tested it with a sound bar as well, the problem is the same.
      When I play content from the receiver, there is no problem, the sound is wonderful, no popping. Also, the TVs speakers are okay.

      I don't think it is a hardware issue, because the TV's sound is OK, the home theater's sound is OK, the problem only happens when I want to use the digital output of the TV (either HDMI ARC or Optical) with auto setting.
      I called LG as well, the rep. said the she will pass this info to the technical team.

      Do you have any idea, that it can be solved, or I need to wait for a software update?

      Hi,    I bought this TV in Israel but it doesn't have the option to set Google Assistant in it, It's running WebOS 4.0 but for some reason LG decided to remove it from the models they sell here.  Can I manually install the apps on my tv?  Can I install the US firmware instead?
