LG and BenQ Prepare for Signage Summit

The OVAB Digital Signage Summit Europe takes place in Munich this month, and both LG and BenQ will have a presence.

LG will show a new 55″ high-brightness screen called the 55XS2B, for in-window use, as well as a 22″ pre-production model. Both screens will be running LG’s WebOS platform. The 55XS2B will have a maximum brightness of 2,500 cd/m², 1920 x 1080 resolution and 178° viewing angles, as well as local dimming. A 98″ display will also be shown.

BenQ will be at the event as an exhibitor for the first time. It will introduce large screens in both the interactive flat panel display and digital signage sectors.

The RP790 will be BenQ’s large IFPD: a 79″ unit with 10 touch points, UltraHD resolution and an anti-glare panel. This unit does not use a conventional digital signage panel with a touch overlay, but embedded touch. It has 430 cd/m² of brightness, a 1,400:1 contrast ratio and 178° viewing angles. An Android-based media player is built in.

In the digital signage space, BenQ has also opted for Android. The company will show the 55″ ST550K: an UltraHD unit with 350 cd/m² of brightness, 1,200:1 contrast ratio and 176° viewing angles. BenQ’s own X-Sign software is also built in, which enables direct plug and play and with the X-Sign app. MHL and QCast are also supported.
