The Pro:Centric Advantage
LG’s LY970H and LY750H series are built around the enhanced Pro:Centric platform with support for Java, Flash and HTML software, delivering one of the widest ranges of partner interactive applications available in the hospitality market. Pro:Centric technology, a standards-based applications platform designed to enable hotels to easily transmit up-to-the-minute information, introduces new ways for hotels to communicate with guests.
Through their advanced platform design, the LY970H and LY750H series provide uniform services and functionality across both RF (radio frequency) and IP (Internet protocol) networks, enabling the TV to operate in both network types. These new hospitality TV series also support embedded integrated LG Pro:Idiom® digital rights management solution and MPEG-2/ MPEG-4 H.264 decoding for viewing of premium HD channels.
Supporting the emerging trend of guests bringing their own video content, the LY970H and LY750H series are designed for second-screen support with LG’s “Smart Share” feature with options including Smart Mirroring, Wi-Di, Wi-Fi Direct and DLNA, as well as Mobile HDMI Link (MHL), to allow system integrators to enable guests to use their mobile devices to share and view their content on the TV.
The premium LY970H series supports HTML and serves up access to a plethora of web-based applications. HTML5 allows streamlined access to web applications and enables developers to create one application that is compatible across multiple platforms and devices.
