LG Electronics announces a significant new development in the field of video conferencing for corporate meeting rooms.
Six models of LG Ultra HD displays and twenty models of Full HD displays are now fully compatible with the Cisco Room Kit, Room Kit Plus and Cisco SX series, which includes SX10, SX20 and SX80. This allows employees that are spread across different countries and continents to communicate effectively with each other without being restricted by technological limitations or blurry images.
The strengths of LG display products and Cisco networking technology combine to create the ideal solution for video conferencing, distribution and presentation of content. This means reliable and robust internet collaboration systems along with displays that can show the best possible content. Together, they offer unique features: excellent colour rendering for video formats and presentations, integrated automatic no-touch configuration, automatic input labelling for fast recognition, and trouble-free synchronisation through low-latency detection.
The LG models that are compatible with the Cisco Room Kit are the Ultra HD 49”-98” of the UH5 range and the Full HD 32”-65” displays (from 32SM5 to 65SM5). This means that there are models for every meeting room. All LG professional displays feature In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, allowing vivid and accurate colours to be displayed correctly from any angle. IPS also has a fast liquid crystal recovery property. In addition, the Full HD models are well-known for their incredibly vibrant colours and precise details.
The collaboration between these two companies has led to a user-friendly system with automatic integration and no-touch set-up: as soon as the LG display detects that the Cisco device is connected to the HDMI port, it will configure and calibrate itself to avoid configuration problems. The professional displays automatically adapt with Cisco Room Kits on their first use. They support all advanced features via the Cisco Touch 10 controller, whether sharing from a wired or wireless source, streaming video or live content, or having simple one-on-one conversations. In addition to the automated setup, LG and Cisco have developed the ability to monitor and report the status of each device, including the display, via Codec and single HDMI cable.
“As work habits evolved, businesses developed a critical need to communicate and share effectively. The integration of six LG models with Cisco Room Kit and Cisco Room Kit Plus can deliver turnkey video conferencing solutions with the highest visual performance,” said Richard Topping, European Account Manager at LG. “This complete integration with Cisco is an example of the potential and versatility of LG’s professional displays. LG is ready to support any business need with innovative and effective solutions.”
