SEOUL, Feb. 16, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) has entered into a global partnership with the US-based Blackdove to deliver seamless digital art experiences on LG’s advanced digital signage displays. Integrating software and curated art from Blackdove’s digital art gallery and NFT (non-fungible token) platform, LG’s high-quality, customizable display solution will provide a convenient way to showcase digital art, which has emerged as the dominant medium in the global art market.

LG’s vibrant digital displays are the superb medium for art installations and the perfect addition to corporate lobbies, galleries, luxury residences and countless other public settings. LG LED signage offer exceptional flexibility with simple-to-install, modular, scalable designs and premium picture quality with resolutions from Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) to 8K (7,680 x 4,320).

Available in markets worldwide starting this quarter, Blackdove curation software can be bundled with LG LED signage products including LG MAGNIT, LG LED Bloc, LED All-in-One and fine-pitch LED signage to deliver the gallery’s vast library of digital art assets. Hand-picked by Blackdove’s curatorial team, the selection of artworks by contemporary artists such as Jonathan McCabe, Kenneth Wayne, Meghan Cheng, Franck Lefebvre and Jamie Scott encompass a broad range of subjects and styles for both new and experienced fans of digital art.

“LG is delighted to partner with Blackdove as this partnership allows us to engage our LED signage customers with a benefit that is unique to LG,” said Paik Ki-mun, senior vice president and head of the Information Display business unit of LG Business Solutions Company. “The option to transform LG LED signage into digital canvases in spaces such as luxury residentials, corporate lobbies, hospitals and retail stores is something we think the public will have a very positive reaction to.”

“We are gratified to have been selected by such an extraordinary partner as LG,” said Marc Billings, CEO of Blackdove. “Digital art is the first form of art in history that can be experienced natively by the whole world in an instant, giving it universal appeal. This makes possible an exponential increase in both the amount and diversity of art, as well as a path to universal access to affordable art enjoyment and ownership.”

      Headlined by Next-Gen Micro LED Display, Company’s Exhibit Boasts an Array of
      Cutting-Edge Displays and Management Solutions for Diverse Sectors

      SEOUL, June 12, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) is participating in InfoComm 2024, North America’s largest professional audiovisual tradeshow, taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada, from June 12-14. Inside a vast, 225-square-meter exhibition booth, the company is showcasing its latest AI-enhanced digital display solutions for B2B environments, including retail, corporate and education. 
      Among the highlights of LG’s InfoComm 2024 exhibit is a next-generation Micro LED display which is being unveiled to the public for the first time. Scheduled to launch by the end of this year, the newly-announced model employs AI technology to enhance picture quality and all-around performance. 
      LG’s Micro LED display utilizes tiny LED chips, measuring approximately 16 micrometers wide by 27 micrometers long – to deliver high contrast, bold colors and exceptional detail. The company’s sophisticated AI technology is used to produce and precisely evaluate the chips, 25 million of which are integrated into the 136-inch model. Additionally, the display itself leverages LG’s AI processor to analyze the brightness and tone of the LED chips in real time, automatically calibrating them to achieve the best picture quality possible. 
      Visitors to LG’s booth can also explore the convenience-enhancing signage display software available through

These include the LG DOOH Ads commercial display advertising solution, LG SuperSign Cloud content management solution, and the LG ConnectedCare real-time monitoring and remote-control solution. Each suite of software helps to maximize the efficient usage of LG’s commercial display solutions and expand the customer experience.  In addition, LG is demonstrating its security system, LG Shield, at InfoComm 2024. The ideal tool for an era in which security has become more important than ever, the system is able to protect central servers, apps and operating systems from a broad spectrum of cyber threats. LG Shield has attained several international security certifications, including Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 2 (CC EAL2) certification and the OpenChain security assurance specification (ISO/IEC 18974:2023). 
      Also on show is an advanced AI advertising solution, presented by LG in collaboration with its partners, which can display ads tailored to various audiences.  
      Furthermore, the LG booth features a comprehensive lineup of display solutions optimized for corporate environments. These include the LG MAGNIT, which now features a 144Hz variable refresh rate (VRR). Courtesy of this new upgrade, users can enjoy high-quality video content without the distraction of screen-tearing or stuttering. As certified by TÜV Rheinland, the LG MAGNIT delivers excellent low-grayscale performance, boasting outstanding image clarity and enabling users to see more vividly what’s happening during the darkest scenes. The display is also certified for color consistency over a wide viewing angle. 
      LG MAGNIT also has earned certifications regarding product- and user-safety in the installation environment. LG’s display complies with the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) regulatory standards for electromagnetic compatibility and has earned a Class-1 rating in the British Standards Institution (BSI) Surface Spread of Flame Test (BS476 Part7). It also comes with Eye Comfort certification from TÜV Rheinland for its low blue-light emissions. 
      The LG MAGNIT All-in-One, a 136-inch display equipped with a built-in controller and speakers, is ideal for use in offices and conference rooms. With its sleek, user-friendly design, the display has received prestigious industrial design accolades, such as a 2024 Red Dot Design Award and a 2024 iF Design Award. 
      Other impressive products presented by LG at this year’s InfoComm include 171-inch LED signage and 105-inch digital signage display featuring a 21:9 aspect ratio. Suitable for video conference calls, the super-sized screens enable users to display multiple pieces of visual information simultaneously, making it possible to share a wealth of data or video feeds from a large number of conference participants. Additional displays include LG CreateBoard, a digital whiteboard that promotes interactive learning and collaboration in both classrooms and workplaces. Google Mobile Services-certified, LG CreateBoard enables users to seamlessly integrate with the Google ecosystem by connecting their Google accounts. 
      Visitors can also see LG’s solutions for the digitalized retail environment, including digital menu boards and standing displays designed for drive-through restaurants and stores. The company’s solutions provide excellent visibility outdoors thanks to their high-brightness displays, and increased durability due to the implementation of technology that protects against screen-yellowing from prolonged exposure to sunlight.  
      “Featuring an array of AI-powered digital display solutions for B2B customers, LG’s showcase at InfoComm 2024 reveals a strong commitment to advancing the technology, and to meeting the unique display needs of diverse sectors,” said Paik Ki-mun, head of the Information Display business unit at LG Business Solutions Company.

      In the third episode of the ‘Customers at Heart’ series, we take a look at how LG India created a customized care solution to innovate the customer experience.
      LG India, a subsidiary of LG, is unique among its global counterparts as it independently manages sales, installation, repair and maintenance. Leveraging this autonomy, LG India has enhanced customer satisfaction and boosted sales through LG BEST Care, a service extending the warranty period of home appliances, including regular maintenance and cleaning.

      Prior to LG BEST Care, LG India offered product care services under LG CareShip, which included routine visits and complimentary filter changes. However, a challenge was that 99% of customers only signed up for the service when they needed it, rather than at the point of purchase. This realization prompted efforts to improve customer engagement and revenue generation.

      LG India aspires to conduct regular product inspections by experts to ensure that purchased products are in optimal condition, especially for customers who want to ensure peak product performance throughout the entire period of use. In order to do this, LG India came up with three key customer experience innovations.
      The first looked to expand the range of customer choices, broadening the range of CareShip sales channels and products. The second aimed to improve customer impression services, where detailed plans were developed to differentiate the installation and repair experience. The last considered how to create an easy and convenient CareShip management system with customer convenience in mind.

      To implement these new services, LG India analyzed data from its 50 million customers based on product type and usage period. This data-driven approach led to the expansion of sales channels and the creation of new care packages tailored to customer demand.
      The company has also enriched the customer experience with discount promotions, a wider selection of choices and the introduction of LG SUPER Service – a unique local package offering superior service quality.
      LG BEST Care further reflects customer needs by bringing ease and convenience to CareShip’s management system. Services are now automated with a systemized schedule for regular visits. In addition, LG India has increased the number of dedicated care professionals and uses Net Promoter Score to identify and address negative feedback on CareShip products.

      These enhancements have yielded impressive results. The number of care products increased from three to ten types, offering a more diverse range of services. The rate of same-day installations and repairs has improved from 66.5 percent to 70.4 percent with SUPER Service. Consequently, LG BEST Care has experienced rapid growth in both customer base and revenue. LG India aims to continue this momentum into 2024 by setting regional monthly goals.
      Stay tuned for the next episode of ‘Customers at Heart,’ where we’ll visit another global LG office to discover more innovative customer experience strategies.
