LG Rebrands Interactive Displays as CreateBoard, Adds Features, OPS, Peripherals
- By Kristal Kuykendall
LG Business Solutions USA has introduced its 2022 interactive displays, rebranded as the LG CreateBoard, and added optional peripheral products such as mounts, mobile carts and an Open Pluggable Specification system, the company said in a news release.
The rebranded interactive display reflects LG’s stated commitment to expanding its education offerings, which includes a new team of learning technology experts and “new support structures that make it easier for IT directors and budget managers to select and implement optimized solutions that simplify user operation and maintenance,” the company said.
“LG is helping improve modern education through new technologies that support flexible learning environments, enhance educator capabilities, enable more engaging lessons for students and provide maximum utility through open-source compatibility with leading software platforms,” said Victoria Sanville, education account leader at LG Business Solutions USA. “Addressing a variety of needs for in-person, remote and blended learning, our purpose-built solutions help educators meet students where they are and develop more customized lessons as educational institutions increasingly embrace personalized learning.”
Available in 65-, 75-, and 86-inch models, the LG CreateBoard allows students to see what the teacher is presenting — even if they’re observing social distancing recommendations — and supports nearly all learning management systems, cloud drives, and online conferencing platforms used for in-person or hybrid/remote learning.
LG CreateBoards feature IPS display panels for wide viewing angles and 4K Ultra HD resolution, making details more easily viewable at a large scale, the company said. The device’s 20-point multi-touch surface enables on-screen collaboration, and the 1 millimeter gap between the IPS screen and anti-glare screen “ensures highly precise touch and on-screen writing experiences.” Also available with each CreateBoard are two stylus pens in various colors and tip sizes.
The LG CreateBoard series comes embedded with the Android operating system, WiFi connectivity, ScreenShare Pro, Air Class software, and an optional OPS slot for conveniently adding a computer module, according to the news release. The OPS system is easy to install and reduces the need for cables and trunking, LG said.
The displays also include two built-in front-facing speakers, embedded Bluetooth connectivity, three HDMI ports, one RS-232C port, audio in/out, RJ-45 LAN ports and six USB 2.0/3.0 ports. For enhanced security, USB Block Mode prevents copying data to unauthorized devices.
Every LG CreateBoard is backed by a three-year limited warranty, LG said, with extended five-year coverage available for education buyers through the LG Honors program.
