LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., Jan. XX, 2015 – New video wall and digital signage screens from LG Electronics – a new generation of commercial displays with wide viewing angles and super-narrow bezels – are now available in the United States.
Previewed at industry trade shows last year, these new energy efficient LG displays are designed to create impactful digital signage installations across many industries, from retail and transportation to lodging and hospitality.
“From immersive video walls to new hybrid TV ‘SuperSign’ displays to LG’s new webOS platform, LG is providing commercial customers a broad array of compelling technology solutions available now in the U.S,” said Clark Brown, vice president, Digital Signage, LG Electronics USA.
LG has begun shipments of two new series in its portfolio of professional video wall products. LG’s LV77A and LV35A video wall displays offer a compelling visual communication platform that can be easily installed, maintained and managed. These displays can be arranged in a variety of configurations up to a 15x15 matrix with 225 total displays, for an immersive visual experience.
The super-narrow bezel-to-bezel thickness of 3.5 mm (55-inch class display) and 4.9 mm (47-inch class display) enables the monitors to be connected seamlessly with each other to create a powerful and impactful video wall. The LV77A and LV35A displays feature direct LED backlighting technology, allowing for crisp, clear content in Full HD 1080p.
The core technology behind all LED video wall models is LG’s IPS panel, which helps ensure accurate color saturation and contrast at wide-angle viewing. LG’s unique display technology also provides a screen surface temperature tolerance of up to 230 degrees Fahrenheit (110 degrees Celsius), which helps alleviate overheating that can affect picture quality.
The 55-inch class (54.64 inches measured diagonally) 55LV77A is currently available for $8,599, while the 55-inch class (54.64 inches diagonal) 55LV35A and 47-inch class (46.96 inches diagonal) 47LV35A are available for $4,919 and $4,229, respectively.

Shipping now in three popular screen sizes, LG’s LS55A series is a high-performance and cost-effective commercial display solution ideally suited for environments that attract large audiences, including bars and restaurants, airports and malls.
The 42-, 47- and 55-inch class LS55A models feature a Full HD display, slim design and embedded webOS technology. Combined with LG’s IPS technology, LED backlighting delivers deep black levels and rich colors for amazing contrast and color detail, bringing Full HD 1080p visuals to life.
LG’s webOS smart platform, optimized for commercial displays, offers software providers a simpler, more intuitive, all-in-one hardware and software solution. With webOS, developers can build Web-based apps suitable for multiple platforms, including Android, iOS and Windows, and write HTML5 programs.
