LG Business Solutions USA has expanded its suite of Health Protocol Solutions, introducing new digital signage packages “that give businesses eye-catching platforms to provide information, guidance, wayfinding and interactive experiences,” according to the announcement.

LG has partnered with other technology leaders to offer an array of new options including wellness kiosks, occupancy management systems, portable battery-operated solutions, and contactless interactive digital signage displays.

“Digital signage solutions are enabling businesses to be flexible and accommodating while the nation responds to changing public health guidance and varying in-store regulations,” said Dan Smith, VP of business development of LG Business Solutions USA, in the announcement.

“These purpose-built digital signage solutions combine LG’s leading displays with the industry’s top sensors and software,” he said. “They’re designed to help retail stores, schools, transit centers and public venues address specific needs that are unique to the current consumer environment, including greater information sharing, customer health monitoring and occupancy tracking.”

Wellness Kiosk Solutions

The new Wellness Kiosks “provide information, health equipment and peace of mind to customers in any type of physical store environment,” according to the LG announcement.

The upright, rectangular system includes a thermal scanner for temperature readings integrated with a 22- or 32-inch LG digital webOS Signage display for displaying health information. The system has a motion-activated hand sanitizer dispenser along with slots to hold boxes of gloves or masks.

It also tracks how many people are using the hand sanitizer.

Occupancy Management Solutions

The new Occupancy Management Solutions integrating LG displays can reduce staff workload by automatically tracking when customers enter and exit while providing guidance to incoming customers.

This eliminates the need to place employees in close proximity to customers at each entrance. At the heart of the occupancy systems are 49- and 55-inch LG displays and a media player that helps manage inflow by updating arriving customers to wait times or current store occupancy.

For high-traffic restrooms in transit centers or public venues, a new SmartRestroom solution informs users of the bathroom’s current occupancy and cleaning status.

The system uses external sensors and LG’s webOS Signage platform to automatically detect and relay occupancy information to custodians through a push-alert when a cleaning is required, based on usage.

The system is built around a 32-inch LG display that mounts outside the bathroom entrance.

The Portable A-Frame Display Solution combines a 32-inch webOS Signage display, an optional on-board battery and either a folding base or a rolling base to allow relocation at a moment’s notice. The LG display is mounted vertically to match the width of the base and allow unintrusive placement in foot traffic zones.

For bigger needs, LG has launched a series of standard and high-brightness solutions that are available in 49-inch and 55-inch display sizes, with a Peerless-AV SmartMount flat-panel cart.

Contactless Interactive Solutions

For interactive displays in retail and public venues without using touchscreens, a number of contactless interactive solutions that allow customers to connect with on-screen digital content through mobile device links or voice controls is now available through LG’s health solutions page.

LG’s Health Protocol Solutions digital signage packages are available now through select LG Business Solutions distribution partners.
