We reported from Infocomm that LG expected to get its OLED TVs into hotels and now at the 2017 Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC), LG introduced twenty new UltraHD TV models in seven series including three OLED TVs, the 65″ commercial LG OLED “Wallpaper” Hotel TV (model 65EV960H) and the 65″ and 55″ class LG OLED hotel TVs (EW960H series).
LG is expanding its Pro:Centric Smart IPTV 4K Ultra HD LED TV lineup with the 55″ and 65″ class UV970H series and the 43″, 49″, 55″, and 65″ class UV770H series. LG’s customizable Pro:Centric Smart platform is built on its webOS Smart TV platform, enabling embedded over-the-top smart applications, content sharing and remote diagnostics and monitoring.
As well as the new TVs, LG has a new STB-5500 Pro:Centric Smart set-top-box which supports UHD video decoding and output resolution and offers an integrated UHD picture upscaler of Full HD content. The new STB extends LG’s Pro:Centric HTML hosting platform to UHD content, enabling partners to integrate embedded smart applications, simplified guest device connectivity and improved diagnostics features in to their hotel system offerings.
With the LG Smart Share feature guests can view content from their mobile device on their STB-5500-enabled in-room TV, and with Bluetooth Sound Sync users can listen to their favorite audio from a Bluetooth-enabled mobile device through the TVs speakers. The set-top-box offers an enclosure design that enables hardware expansion modules, such as a DOCISIS cable modem, to be added to the device.
