LG Electronics Integrates Connectivity, Ease-of-Use, Energy Saving Technologies for Education MarketNetwork monitors, projectors and flat-panel products help schools stretch their technology budgets to create a more immersive, engaging classroom experience
DENVER, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics is inspiring educators to create more interactive lesson plans with cost-effective products that enhance learning environments from K-12 classrooms to higher education, district offices, libraries and more. On display this week at the 2010 International Society for Technology in Education Conference (ISTE), LG is highlighting its latest Network Monitors, digital signage, LCD displays and projector solutions for the education market (booth # 762).
"As cost continues to have a heavy influence in technology investments, our broad range of reliable, large-screen LCDs, monitor solutions, and flexible projectors are performance driven in order to maximize budgets and the student experience," said Jeff Dowell, vice president, LG Electronics USA Business Solutions. "From information sharing, to the Internet, to broadcast content, LG's products take the best of technology to transform a static classroom into an interactive, engaging learning experience."
Leading the way is LG's Network Monitor solution that provides schools new ways to extend their technology budgets. This network solution provides a no-hassle virtual desktop computing option - available in both 11- and 31-monitor (model N+) configurations - for classrooms and education environments looking to reduce energy but still effectively engage and communicate with students without purchasing an individual PC per student.
For larger classroom display needs, LG's flat panel monitors and projectors allow for easy viewing of video, stills and presentations.
Workstations that employ the LG Network Monitors will also benefit from less heat and noise typically generated by multiple PCs - reducing the districts carbon footprint by requiring less electricity and air conditioning. LG Network Monitors can improve school computing immediately by:
-- Reducing computer purchase costs by 57 percent**
For school AV professionals and integrators, the Network Monitor solution (11 monitors) boasts easy installation and reduced maintenance. Additionally, with far fewer PCs to manage, IT staff can focus on more critical system functions.
For auditoriums, meeting rooms and more, LG's BX401 DLP projector displays content at a 300-inch maximum diagonal image from under 32 feet away with the brilliance of 4000 ANSI Lumens. With multiple connectivity options, the BX401C can display video from a variety of devices such as computers, DVD and Blu-ray players, DTV decoders and more with its HDMI inputs, USB port, RS-232C connection as well as two RGB inputs.
Other display options for classrooms and school administration include the use of digital signage monitors and flat panel HDTVs. LG's 42-inch class* (model M4224C) LCD digital signage monitor brings high definition to public displays. A Full HD 1080p resolution monitor, the M4224C features new LAN and video wall control for easy scheduling and dissemination of content. With an ultra-slim 16.9 millimeter bezel, the M4224C blends easily into education environments and can help school officials post class schedules or act as an emergency alert system for notifying students and staff across an entire school or campus.
For in-classroom displays, LG's LH200C integrated HDTV is available in 22-, 32-, 37- and 42-inch* class sizes and can display educational and informational programming in the vibrancy and detail of high definition enhanced by a 1366 x 768 display resolution and a 50,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. For classroom settings, teachers can connect their PCs to the display to project an educational video or news story in a way that captivates students' attention more than a standard overhead machine. Specialized commercial features on the LH200C include public display settings, USB cloning capability and an RS-232C port which helps reduce installation time and maintenance costs. The 32LH200C also integrates EcoSmart(TM) energy saving technology.
Energy Saving Technology
New Dynamic Power Saving modes on LCDs help conserve energy, providing the option to adjust power consumption and provide optimal picture settings based on the incoming video. On LG LCDs, Dynamic Power Savings reduces power consumption and optimizes picture settings, while Static Power Savings allows the installer to set the preferred power consumption level. This combination of automatic settings and options for manual adjustments helps save on energy costs and allows for increased energy savings while still providing superior picture quality. With the Intelligent Sensor feature, integrators can program the LCDs to respond to the ambient light in the room and automatically reduce brightness and energy output under most circumstances.
