Recognizing the complexity of delivering complete turn-key digital signage solutions, LG Electronics USA has selected BroadSign International as the software provider for its newest digital signage solution, SuperSign Premier-s, company officials said this week.

The alliance with BroadSign is designed to make it easier for small and medium-sized businesses to deploy and manage digital signage networks.

LG's SuperSign Premier provides content offerings that SMBs can use right out of the box. SuperSign Premier's user interface is based on BroadSign's core SaaS technology and has a customized LG UI specifically designed for SMBs deploying networks of 25 players or less. The hardware package consists of an LG flat panel display (model M4214C) and the LG NC2000 media player that provides access to content management software and starter templates as well as news and weather feeds.

SuperSign Premier also is supported by 48-hour on-site hardware swap program, technical support, and convenient monthly financing, according to the company.

"Software is a critical component of any digital signage solution and is the impetus behind establishing strong relationships with leading third-party software developers," said Jeff Dowell, vice president for digital signage at LG Electronics USA, in a statement. "BroadSign has best-of-class software that, combined with LG hardware, will provide SMBs with the technology solution they need to get up and running quickly."

Dowell said that SuperSign Premier is supported by a variety of key content provider partners, led by CNN. LG enjoys a long-standing alliance with news leader CNN, which provides more than a dozen news and entertainment feeds that can be easily and quickly integrated by the end user. LG is also teaming with iStockphoto, which offers easy, affordable and royalty-free photos, illustrations, video, audio and Flash files.

SuperSign Premier also includes access to LG's Certified Content Providers (CCP), which offer custom content creation services optimized for the SuperSign Premier system. Initial LG CCP providers include Aspect Productions, Alchemy, Blue Pony, and Saddle Ranch Productions.

SuperSign Premier has a target monthly price of $149 for 36 months. It is available to order now from major distributors and should ship later this month.
