With LG the public space TV management gets a new domain. Through its new network management system known as Pro Centric Catena, the company is aiming to give patrons the specific programming they want with directly synchronized audio into their devices, despite what other TVs in the location are playing. With the onset of Pro Centric Catena by LG Business Solutions, now gym-goers can select from any available gym TV and listen to its audio directly into their smartphones and earbuds.

Pro Centric Catena provides a browser-based user interface to enable simple and convenient control of multiple commercial displays by staff using smartphones or tablets. With this new IP-based solution gyms, sports bars, fitness centres, hospitals, and retail establishments can remotely tune content and manage their digital displays without having to use multiple remote controls or tune individual set-top boxes to TV channels. Being a simple web-based app, this solution is a boom for many as it customizes every single person needs, as now they can choose what to listen to as per their need.

According to Richard Lewis, vice president, technology for LG Business Solutions USA, more and more integrators and end-users are considering remote management solutions as a means to increase productivity and simplify content management across any size display network, all while providing new benefits for customers and guests.

In a statement, he said, “Public-facing displays are effective tools for messaging and ambience, and Pro Centric Catena helps make it easier for business owners to ensure their customers have great experiences without requiring constant staff supervision or assistance. Customers gain a personalized experience, business owners and staff get peace of mind that TVs will always be easy to control, and maintenance is simplified by installers’ ability to log in remotely and diagnose minor issues. All of this further enhances the value of connected displays.”

“In addition to the simplicity of a drag-and-drop interface to direct content to displays, business operators also have the ability to brand their user interface with their logo or color scheme for a more personalized user experiences,” he added.

The LG Pro Centric Catena is meticulously designed keeping in mind the need of every individual. The solution comprises a server and a TV application that is accessed through an intuitive web-based user interface, providing control of every display, either individually or in pre-arranged groups of displays. TVs can be remotely tuned, powered on and off, rebooted and can display custom messages created by the owners. Pro Centric Catena exclusively works with LG Pro Centric Smart IP televisions, set-top boxes and supports extensive picture quality in both High Definition and 4K UHD picture resolutions. Installing this system is a cost-effective investment as it eliminates the hassle of long HDMI cable runs and video matrices with simple Cat-6 cabling, in addition, it also eliminates the need for a set-top box for each display or media player for live TV content delivery.

As confirmed by Richard Lewis, LG Pro Centric Catena supports cable and satellite box sources as well as commercial video-on-demand services using the Pro-Idiom digital rights management system that provides owners access to premium content, thus protecting content with a leading end-to-end digital rights management system.
