The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) named LG Electronics USA
the exclusive “Official 4K UHD TV Partner” for the 2019 NAB Show, which
transcends traditional broadcasting and embraces content delivery to new
screens in new ways. In addition, LG Business Solutions was selected to
provide innovative new commercial displays for the “Road to ATSC 3.0”
Next Gen TV exhibit in the North Hall and the high-profile Next Gen TV
information center in the convention center’s lobby.

LG Digital Signage and 4K TVs Everywhere at NAB Show

From digital signage for registration areas and session venues to 4K TVs
for theaters and the broadcast studio, LG displays were ubiquitous at
the 2019 NAB Show. Dozens of 49-inch LG screens greeted attendees at
hundreds of technical and business sessions. LG 70-, 65- and 55-inch 4K
UHD TVs were used throughout the convention including the Futures Park
in the North Hall, where among others, NAB PILOT, the AWARN Alliance and
Trivini Digital featured LG displays.

LG 65- and 55-inch class 4K UHD displays were used by Broadcast
Education Association (BEA) digital research poster sessions and
conference sessions, while 70-inch class TVs were featured in the
screening room for faculty and student creative awards in BEA’s exhibit
hall located in the Las Vegas Westgate Convention Center.

LG Commercial Displays Bring ‘Road to ATSC 3.0’ Exhibit to Life

The Road to ATSC 3.0 exhibit, presented by NAB, the Consumer Technology
Association and the Advanced Television Systems Committee, was the NAB
Show’s epicenter of all things related to the next-generation broadcast
standard known as ATSC 3.0. LG and its Zenith R&D subsidiary are among
the leading co-developers of the new standard.

Unique screens from LG Business Solutions, which offers a broad array of
UHD digital signage and commercial displays, represented the core of the
exhibit design – meeting the industry’s goal of telling the Next Gen TV
story in fresh new ways. The centerpiece of the main stage was a
12-1/2-foot-wide by 7-foot-tall 2.0 mm pixel pitch LG Direct View LED
display, which produces outstanding color, contrast, saturation and
brightness levels optimized for broadcast applications.

The exhibit included a broadcast camera feeding a 55-inch LG OLED to
demonstrate the use case of LG Direct View LED screens as a digital
backdrop in TV and Cinema production. LG OLED TVs are used by Hollywood
post production facilities as consumer reference monitors because of
their superior color accuracy, contrast, and calibration capabilities.
Award-winning 55-inch class LG OLED TVs also were selected by Pearl TV,
Dolby and the AWARN Alliance for the Road to ATSC 3.0 exhibit.

Another unique example of LG digital signage displays at the NAB Show
were six 86-inch LG “Ultra Stretch” displays (86BH5C) configured in
double-sided vertical pillars in the Las Vegas Convention Center lobby
and North Hall. Each display measures just over seven feet tall and
about two feet wide for amazing eye catching displays.

Advanced Future LG Display Technologies Previewed

Offering broadcasters a sneak peek at the latest advancement of the LG
OLED technology for the first time, the company previewed the
awe-inspiring LG Transparent OLED display. The LG Transparent OLED
delivers stunning images while allowing viewers or a camera to see
people and objects behind it. Broadcast executives, news directors and
chief engineers marveled at its super-thin profile and advanced
transparent panel ideal for TV news and talk show sets. In addition, the
NHK 8K Theater featured a prototype 88-inch LG OLED 8K display with 16
times the resolution of HDTV, provided by LG Display, sister company of
LG Electronics.
