LG has created a series of outdoor direct-view LED (DVLED) displays that can be used on outside decks onboard cruise ships.
The screens are designed to provide a high-quality picture, regardless of the weather or the time of day. They also have a powder coating to protect them against salinity and corrosion.
“LG’s marine-grade DVLED technology is the ideal outdoor display medium because it can produce bright images and has the contrast necessary for watching videos in direct sunlight,” said Jake Benner, director of hospitality, cruise and fitness at LG Business Solutions USA. “Outdoor areas on cruise ships can now be outfitted with movie theatre-sized displays, while providing optimal performance day in and day out, regardless of how salty, wet or unpredictable the environment is.”
LG will launch two models, including one with a 6.2-millimetre pixel pitch and a 5,000:1 contrast ratio that is ideal for situations where the viewer is closer to the screen. The other has an 8.3-millimetre pixel pitch and a 7,000:1 contrast ratio that is suitable for spaces where passengers view the screen from a distance.
Both screens have a 160-degree horizontal viewing angle and can be operated on either 110-volt or 240-volt power systems. They can also function in temperatures ranging from -30C to 50C.
“Cruise operators can deliver large, captivating content that can catch visitors’ eyes from across the deck,” said Benner. “The placement possibilities really are endless, and we are excited to see how designers and owners integrate these powerful displays into their environments to elevate the cruise experience.”
LG will showcase the products for the first time at Seatrade Cruise Global 2023 on 27-30 March 2023.
