News feeds from CNN incorporated into Digital Signage Solution

LAS VEGAS, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Making it simple to incorporate full digital signage solutions in commercial environments, LG Electronics today announced SignNET, a truly turnkey digital signage solution at InfoComm 2010 (booth #C5624).  

Making it simpler to buy, sell and use digital signage, LG SignNET includes hardware, software and starter templates – as well as news feeds from CNN – all available at an affordable monthly cost.  Right out of the box, digital signage content can be created simply using almost a dozen starter templates that are customized for numerous vertical markets.

In an extension of LG's long-standing alliance with CNN, SignNET will work with the world's news leader to display the latest news and information as designated by the user. This alliance with a major news service ensures that end users aren't stuck with static content, but rather can bring in fresh promotional and syndicated content to their commercial environments. Bundled into more than a dozen different categories, such as latest news, business, entertainment, politics, and technology, the end user can select which category will be displayed without paying an additional cost.

"Making digital signage simple but exceedingly effective is what SignNET is all about," said Jeff Dowell, Vice President, Digital Signage, LG Electronics USA Business Solutions.  "Our relationship with CNN extends the capabilities of SignNET to provide even more engaging content with customizable digital signage options."    

Packaged Content

SignNET is simple, easy to use, cost-effective and works right out of the box, Dowell explained. This solution integrates hardware, software, and services eliminating the complexities of deploying small digital signage networks. SignNET was specifically designed for small to medium businesses (SMBs) that seek a simple and dynamic approach to communicate with their customers and to promote their goods and services in a compelling and differentiated way.

Illustrating a commitment to pushing the industry toward full solutions, SignNET includes three critical elements of a true digital solution – product, services and programs – each with the intention of creating easy, engaging and customizable signage.  With numerous vertical market templates, end users will have a variety of free content options to choose from and input their own information.  

LG SignNET also has the ability to connect third-party content designers for creating engaging advertising and content. These certified developers will then provide paid, custom content and resources for a growing base of SignNET users that want to personalize their content beyond the templates available. With 24/7 technical support, and three-year onsite service, both the distributor and customer benefit from a strong service-oriented relationship.

SignNET is scheduled to launch in August 2010 at the starting monthly price of $179 for a three-year period. At the conclusion of that time the users have the opportunity to renew their contract and get a complete "technology refresh" or pay a reduced monthly fee with their current technology package.
